If you love checking out new restaurants, you may be excited to learn that a highly anticipated eatery featuring gourmet street food just opened its doors for a test. They will host their official grand opening next week.
Encore Rouge started several years ago as a food truck that would serve up delicious gourmet street food to hungry customers in the Birmingham area.
However, after winning second place at REV Birmingham's competition for startups and growing in popularity among local food lovers, the time came for Encore Rouge to open its first brick-and-mortar restaurant location in Alabama.
The new restaurant is located at 707 Richard Arrington Jr. Boulevard in Birmingham.
The new Encore Rouge restaurant opened for testing with a limited menu last week to prepare for its official grand opening on Saturday, October 1, 2022.
The gourmet street food restaurant is known for its popular customer favorites like the spicy chicken sandwich, cajun chicken or shrimp alfredo, street burgers, wings, tenders, fried catfish, and more. You can view Encore Rouge's full menu here.
Even though the new eatery hasn't officially held its grand opening, it's already getting positive feedback from the community.
