Larry's Place was a white-tablecloth restaurant and nightclub owned by Larry Levine, Larry Pitts, and Michael Thomas and located in the 14,000 square-foot former Victoria Station at 2023 Morris Avenue in downtown Birmingham.

Chef Todd Wolfson, who came to Birmingham from New York's Hyatt House, planned a "Manhattan-style" menu with soups, seafood, smoked ribs, beef, chicken and veal. As a signature dessert, he prepared a flaming bananas foster cobbler.

In addition to the dining room, there was a circular bar and an entertainment area with a 15-piece band and strolling musicians and jugglers. It opened in April 1994 with plans to expand onto a rooftop terrace.
