Birmingham’s innovative food scene is once again drawing attention. The Birmingham Public Library kicked off its literary and culinary celebration Eat Drink Read Write on Sunday with a panel of rising chefs and restaurateurs, including several Urban Food Project clients and Kim Brock, owner of Bitty’s Living Kitchen and the second tenant in REV’s REVeal Kitchen. Other panelists included Abhi of MoMo and his namesake restaurant in the Summit, Eli of Eli’s Jerusalem Grill, and Amanshwa of Ghion’s Cultural Hall.
The event was an opportunity to showcase the growing cultural and culinary diversity in Birmingham’s restaurant scene and the role The Pizitz Food Hall has played. REV’s Director of Business Growth Deon Gordon moderated discussions that explored the local impact of each panelist while guests enjoyed off-menu samples.
