BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (April 2, 2015) – Brookwood Village, a dynamic mixed-use development located in the affluent Mountain Brook and Homewood area of Birmingham, Alabama, today announced that the shopping center would welcome Grille 29 to its growing restaurant mix in 2015.

Grille 29 is an award-winning, upscale casual steak and seafood concept that originated in Huntsville and has captured the favor of the entire state of Alabama. The 280-seat Brookwood Village location will showcase a menu of appetizers, soups, salads and signature entrees including stuffed sea scallops, roast half duck, jumbo lump crab cakes, plus the Filet 29, a house specialty steak wrapped with Applewood smoked bacon and topped with gorgonzola.

This will be the second Alabama location of Grille 29, following its popular debut in Huntsville. Owned and operated by Orlando-based Restaurant Partners, Inc., Grille 29 was named “Best in Alabama” by Trip Advisor in 2013. Grille 29 has also been perennially voted “Best Overall Restaurant” in the annual Taste of Huntsville, and voted one of the “100 Best Places to Eat in Alabama before You Die.”

“Restaurant Partners, Inc. has long viewed Birmingham as a dynamic city and Brookwood Village the perfect location for the expansion of the Grille 29 brand,” RPI President Dave Manuchia said. “The Grille concept is a unique blend of sophisticated, creative food served in a relaxed, fun environment.”

Grille 29 will occupy the 7,975-square-foot, free-standing, single-story building on Brookwood Village’s east edge near Macy’s. More information about the new restaurant may be found at

“Brookwood Village continues to be a popular destination where unique and new-to-the-market dining options are increasingly available to serve the local community’s discerning tastes,” stated Todd Minnis, managing partner and CIO of the real estate investment management division of Cypress Equities. “Grille 29 will be an excellent complement to our already growing roster of fine restaurants.”
