On Oct. 25, 2022, The Tallulah Group, which operates Tallulah Wine Bar & Bistro in Birmingham and BESA in Detroit, opened Birmingham’s newest restaurant, ZANA.

This “modern American restaurant with European flair” is in the former space of The Bird & The Bread (210 S. Old Birmingham Ave, Birmingham), and offers a menu curated by Chef Jason Bamford that is filled with signature dishes including steak tartare; octopus with fennel; lamb chops with coco spice, and much more.

The 10,000-square-foot space includes a private dining room and exclusive dining sections executed by local designers, and a bar area that features a robust cocktail program led by mixologist Anthony Escalante.

“Guests should expect a dining experience that will transcend taste… through alluring ambiance, bold flavors and unparalleled service,” Johnny Prenci, ZANA’s general manager, said in a press release.
