ForteChef Don Yamauchi left the Michael Mina restaurants at the MGM Grand Detroit to return to the fold, the Epoch Restaurant Group’s downtown Birmingham spot. He has rewritten the menu, which is now served from lunch through dinner, lowering the prices in the process. (Breakfast also is served.) Typifying his touch are such dishes as a whole chicken marinated in cinnamon, sea salt, and garlic, and accompanied by wasabi mashed potatoes, cucumber slaw, and dipping sauces, served for two; and grilled flat-iron steak with Napa cabbage, cilantro, and steamed rice. 201 S. Old Woodward, Birmingham; 248-594-7300. $21 H
