Freddy’s, a popular restaurant in Birmingham’s Highland Park neighborhood, is opening its second location in Homewood.

The new neighborhood eatery is moving into the old Nabeel’s Cafe and Market space at 1706 Oxmoor Rd, Homewood, AL 35209. They plan to open the new Edgewood neighborhood Freddy’s location in the summer of 2023.

“We’ve found a great spot. We are at our core a neighborhood type spot. We’ve found a great neighborhood to take Freddy’s to the next level,” Stuart Stone, the owner of Freddy’s, told Bham Now.

The announcement of the new Homewood location comes after Freddy’s celebrated its 5th Anniversary at the Highland Park restaurant on January 15th.  

According to Stone, Freddy’s started out as a wine bar (hence the name Freddy’s Wine Bar) serving small plates. Over the years it has evolved  more and more into a restaurant with a full menu and a wide variety of wines and cocktails.

At the new place, Stone also revealed it will have a few new wrinkles such as:

  • “Take and bake” foods like lasagnas and pastas on sale
  • A market aspect similar to the old Nabeels, selling wines and Freddy’s sauces and dressings 
  • Offer “Grab and Go” service

And of course, the restaurant will continue to serve Birmingham’s finest charcuterie boards, Italian meals and wines.
