While there had been rumors for months, Birmingham restaurant Cameron's Steakhouse, 117 Willits Street, closed after dinner service Sunday, June 16, with no advance notice for long-time customers and diners.
Cameron's originally opened in the Willits Building shortly after it opened in 2001 along with companion restaurant Mitchell's Fish Market. At the time, both restaurants were owned and operated by Columbus restaurateur Cameron Mitchell, who sold the restaurants to Ruth's Chris Steak House for $92 million in 2008, which then sold the 21-restaurant group to Landry's for $10 million in 2014.
Mitchell's, located at 115 Willits in Birmingham, was closed by Landry's on January 1, 2018 – also with no prior notice.
The combined site locations are being marketed for lease by Erica Dunlap, Angela Thomas and Nicole Voisard of Signature Associates. Voisard said the Mitchell's space is 7,812 square feet, and the Cameron's location is 6,891 square feet. The liquor license is available with the space, she said, and they would prefer to have one user for both spaces.
The landlord is asking $32 a square foot, triple net. While there is some interest in the two spaces, nothing is confirmed.
Landry's did not respond for comment.
