Spinning off the success of their Ferndale original, husband-and-wife proprietors Thom and Regan Bloom have taken the next step, moving into a space in downtown Birmingham where they’ve added dinner to breakfast and lunch. The much more elaborate setting than the bare-bones Ferndale spot, and the added amenity of cocktails, have been drawing crowds for a menu as eclectic as the décor, which mixes ’50s retro with sleek contemporary. The American fare (with bit of Southwest influence) is appealing and unpretentious.
