New name and new crab trap menu

Hazel, Ravines and Downtown co-owners Beth Hussey and Emmele Herrold have a knack for transporting us to new places, without ever leaving the table. And with this new year comes a brand new name and look for their restaurant. When Hussey and Herrold originally opened the restaurant in October 2018, they intended to create a place the whole community could embrace and they named it after the three neighborhoods that converged right where the restaurant stands. Over time, the owners, staff and guests came to call it simply “Hazel’s.” Going forward, Hussey and Herrold say the restaurant will officially be called Hazel’s. And, good news – Hazel’s Crab Trap menu, which began in January will continue through April 4. This winter seasonal menu is inspired by memorable spring break getaways to the Gulf and Florida coast. And uncomplicated, Hazel’s Crab Trap presents a seafood menu of in-season favorites – delivering everything from fresh-caught stone crab claws to a grouper reuben; New Orleans-style barbecue shrimp to conch fritters, alligator bites and even spicy gumbo. The crazy crabganza features three pounds of sharable crab – stone crab, king crab and snow crab. Just be sure to save room for a slice of pie – key lime, coconut or banoffee – by Hazel’s pastry chef, Olivia Rinke. 1 Peabody Street, Birmingham,
