Bamboo on 2nd
The restaurant was created by Sam Fallow and Bernie Smith, who previously operated Azalea and Tavern on the Summit. The kitchen was initially headed by Abhi Sainju, founder of Everest Sushi. The menu includes sushi, noodle bowls, small plates, yakitori and Asian-inspired sandwiches. The restaurant offers lunch and dinner seven days a week along with a full bar.
The space was under renovation for Haller Magee's planned Grace Revival restaurant when Fallow and Smith took over the lease. The owners hired Appleseed Workshop to redesign the space and complete the build-out. Their design won a 2016 Honor Award from AIA Birmingham.
