The Pizitz Food Hall has an exciting new tenant. Chef and owner Kimberly McNair Brock has officially opened the doors to Bitty’s Living Kitchen in our restaurant accelerator, REVeal Kitchen. Over the next few months, Kim will serve her healthy “living food” creations as she works toward opening a brick and mortar location in Birmingham. Be sure to support Kim (a part of the CO.STARTERS entrepreneurial family) and our many other small business owners as they continue to help build Birmingham’s vibrancy and its culinary reputation. If you think your business idea is a good fit for REVeal Kitchen, be sure to enroll in Create Birmingham’s next CO.STARTERS class, which kicks off September 11, 2017. Read below for more info.

After opening Chocolatà Artisanal Chocolatier in 2017, Kathy D’Agostino has enjoyed watching the once quiet streets of downtown Birmingham come back to life. REV sat down with her to learn more about how she landed here, where she thinks the city is heading, and why Chocolata believes in Birmingham.
