The third applicant, Crush, will return to the Birmingham City Commission in two weeks with another request for an economic development license.
Even though there were three applicants vying for only two bistro licenses, the discussion at the Birmingham City Commission meeting Monday went relatively smoothly. On Monday night, existing restaurants Birmingham Sushi and What Crepe? easily received approval for the two 2013 Birmingham bistro licenses. Meanwhile, a third applicant, Crush, was passed over for a bistro license though most city commissioners were confident the proposed wine-themed restaurant had a better chance of approval with a different kind of liquor license.

Bistros are defined as having seasonal sidewalk seating, a full-service kitchen and no more than 65 seats inside …

Plans for all three restaurants came before the Birmingham City Commission in mid-October for an initial screening, during …

We stopped by Birmingham's newest boutique eatery, What Crepe? on North Old Woodward Avenue.
I've eaten crepes in a lot of places (all outside France, of course). I've had crepes from a food cart in Burlington, VT featuring farm-fresh ingredients from, literally, right down the road. I've eaten giant breakfast crepes at the famous St. Lawrence market in Toronto. Funny enough, however, I hadn't tried a crepe from Michigan until this week when I finally stopped by Birmingham's new What Crepe? on North Old Woodward Avenue. I had "The Obvious" from the restaurant's menu of staff and diner favorites. It's a savory crepe with a hint of sweetness, stuffed with chicken, spinach, pecans, feta cheese and baked apples. I'm not exactly sure what "the obvious" part of its name refers to, but this crepe was obviously very good and being quite …
