Big Rock coming back

Birmingham lost an iconic restaurant in 2021 when Big Rock Chophouse was sold and closed by longtime owners Norm and Bonnie LePage. Now there’s reason to celebrate as Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, LLC announced that they would be adding Big Rock Italian Chophouse as a new concept to its family of restaurants.  Located in Birmingham’s former Grand Trunk Western Railroad Depot, Big Rock Italian Chophouse is scheduled to open in the summer of 2024. The project is a joint venture with Cameron Mitchell Restaurants and a number of local investor partners including Tom Celani and Dario Bergamo. The 11,000-square foot fine-dining Italian chophouse will feature a curated menu of best-in-class prime steaks and chops, an indulgent selection of handmade pastas, rich sauces, and a robust, world-class wine list. Big Rock Italian Chophouse will also offer an extensive bourbon collection and a signature handcrafted cocktail menu composed with the highest quality ingredients. “We’re thrilled to introduce Big Rock Italian Chophouse to Birmingham. Over the next year, our team will work to update and reintroduce this spectacular property,” said Cameron Mitchell, founder and CEO, CMR. “We consider Southeast Michigan a second home market and are eagerly looking forward to the opening and success of another new concept in Birmingham.” The restaurant will seat approximately 375 guests, including more than 100 outdoor seats and will have three unique bars and multiple private dining rooms. It will feature a private cigar club and terrace with an intimate setting for members to enjoy exclusive, specialty cigar offerings. 245 S. Eton Street, Birmingham
