Birmingham Pub opening next Wednesday
By Lisa Brody
After the long winter, and even longer days of the COVID-19 pandemic, there's a new bright spot in downtown Birmingham, with opening of the Birmingham Pub in the former locale of the Triple Nickel, 555 S. Old Woodward, with a new menu, a freshened interior and casual approach to daily dining as it opens on Wednesday, April 14.
Last October, The Joe Vicari Restaurant Group, owner of the Andiamo restaurants and Joe Muer Seafood in Detroit and Bloomfield Hills, announced they had purchased the Triple Nickle restaurant in downtown Birmingham following its permanent closure, which they would rename The Birmingham Pub, offering homemade, from scratch comfort food.
“It's casual gastropub dining. It's casual and approachable,” with moderate pricing, said Vicari. “There's something for everyone.”
Among the menu's dinner choices are “Pub Specialties” which include braised brisket of beef; toad in a hole, or Yorkshire pudding, traditional sausage, roasted onion, duck fat potatoes; fried chicken and waffles; Ora salmon; cedar planked whitefish with everything bagel seasoning; and Grey Goose shrimp and penne. Other offerings include steaks, salads, burgers, soups and small plates.
Sandwiches, burgers, salads fill the lunch menu, along with small plates, starters and soups.
Vicari said the new restaurant will serve lunch and dinner daily, with “brunch coming down the road.”
Minor interior improvements, such as new tables and some new seating arrangements, were made.
Birmingham Pub will be open Monday through Thursday, 11:30 a.m. until 10 p.m.; Friday from 11:30 a.m. until midnight; Saturday, 10 a.m. to midnight; and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
