Birmingham foodies, we know so many new spots for you to try. From gourmet street food to beer to coffee, there are so many businesses in The Magic City coming soon or already open. Here are seven that we’re excited to visit.
1. Encore Rouge | Downtown
Street food is elevated at Encore Rouge. This popular food truck officially opened their brick-and-mortar restaurant in Southside. Serving cajun-inspired, gourmet street food, Bham can try their shrimp and sausage, wings and more.
Come hungry on October 1 for the grand opening, starting at 11AM. You’ll catch me munching on some of their loaded fries.

2. Clean Juice | Mountain Brook
Lane Parke‘s newest business just opened its doors. Clean Juice has a bit of everything when it comes to yummy, healthy bites. It opened just in time for the cooler weather—you can grab a smoothie and take a walk around the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.
“The addition of Clean Juice to Lane Parke Phase II is an exciting one. The new location will offer more than just pressed juice, they plan to carry whey and hemp protein, smoothies, granola, sandwiches and açaí bowls.”Jackie Beth Hollingworth, Leasing Associate, Crawford Square Real Estate
