Excerpt: Aaron F. Belen, owner of The Morrie in Royal Oak, has opened a second location of the restaurant. The new spot is in Birmingham, and like the Royal Oak location, it offers roadhouse-style cuisine and live music, according to a press release from AFB Hospitality Group.
“Birmingham’s dining scene has been asking for a concept that offers both great value and something for everyone,” said Belen, owner of AFB Hospitality Group, in the release.
Mark Rivera, a multi-instrumentalist with Billy Joel and Ringo Starr, joined The Morrie’s house band, Your Generation, for the first show, Aug. 9. The official grand opening was Aug. 15.
