Two new restaurants and a bar are coming to a new downtown Birmingham development. One of the tenants, The Essential, will open in summer 2018 on the corner of Morris Avenue and Founders Station Plaza. Victor King and Kristen Hall of Feast & Forest and Baking Bandits fame, are heading up the neighborhood cafe concept with a seasonal New American menu.
The second restaurant, Cayo Coco, is a new concept from the owner of The Collins Bar. Its menu will focus on South American and Cuban cuisine. It will open in December.
