The Townhouse Bistro is a relatively new restaurant in downtown Birmingham. I’ve tried it out for brunch a couple times and the food is good, but a bit on the pricey side for what you get. I had chicken and waffles on my fist visit and it was a somewhat unique take on the concept. It was served in a sandwich like stack with a fresh slaw. I had the quiche of the day on a subsequent visit and it was creamy and delicious. But, like I said, it is a bit on the expensive end of the spectrum for brunch. The restaurant itself is well decorated but very cramped inside, with uncomfortable chairs. Luckily, they do have a large outdoor seating area during the warm weather months. An odd quirk of the location is that the actual kitchen is a door down the street and the server walk the food down the sidewalk and around the corner to the restaurant in large red boxes. In all, I’m not in any hurry to go back, but it is an alternative if the wait is long at Toast across the street.
