About the restaurant
With an ingredient-driven focus, global accents and nuances, the menu is a commitment to simplicity and purity of flavor, a philosophy our new ownership firmly believes in. The menu is an expression of the finest available meats and vegetables, nearly all of which we procure fresh. Drawing inspiration from each corner of the Indian subcontinent, from northern plains to southern coast, we offer a diverse and dynamic experience for our guests.

In addition to traditional Indian favorites such as tikka masalas and biriyanis, Bay Leaf Modern Cuisine & Bar offers modern tantalizing twist on Indian delicacies. Unique additions to the menu such as a perfectly grilled sumptuous desi burger, succulent tangy kababs, completely re-imagined and modernized appetizer selection, complete with signature dishes such as raspberry paneer tikka and tamarind glazed short ribs will leave you craving for more !

About the restaurant
Great ideas often occur in the most comfortable of settings and Bellinis is no exception. With that in mind, in 2008 after discussing ideas over a bottle (or 2) of wine, the concept of Bellinis was formed. Come see why "Life is Sweet" at our place. Relax and enjoy your own glass of wine among friends and see where your discussions take you. At Bellinis OUR Passion is YOUR Food and YOUR Service.

Bellini's features 100% Prime Organic Beef, housemade pastas, veal, seafood and classic Tuscan Italian dishes. Bellini's maintains an extensive wine selection and weekly desert specials. Our bar opens weekdays at 4pm for drinks and dinner service begins at 5pm Monday to Saturday.

We have two private dining areas available for large parties. Our private dining room accommodates 20 to 25 patrons and features a 48" TV with audio visual capabilities. Our Intimate Dining room accommodates 10 to 15 patrons. Reservations are suggested.

Nice experience but I am not a fan of fixed price menus as I prefer to eat small portions. It was empty on a Sunday lunch - should consider a la carte menu. The setting is lovely however.

About the restaurant
A fun, energetic tribute to American Southern cuisine. Our dining room is bustling with high-energy just like our great Magic City. Our menus focus on local distilleries and local farms throughout Alabama; the menu is ever changing with only the freshest products on hand. Our dishes are whimsical yet elegant with a feeling of comfort to them.
Roots & Revelry departs from the norm by modernizing fine dining. It’s haute with casual undertones, southern with international influences.

Our Patio is not covered. Patio is weather permitting. In case of inclement weather, we will do our best to accommodate you inside but can not guarantee a table.

Reservations preferred, walk-ins accepted based on availability.

We are allotting 1 1/2 hours for parties of two, 2 hours for parties of four, 2 1/2 hours for parties six or more. Please call us at 205-730-1907 or email home@roots-revelry.com for any parties over six guests.

About the restaurant
At NoJa we offer our services and products in accordance with the wishes of our customers' escalating standards that call for a new look, a flavorful, fresh and balanced menu, and finally, a new image aiming to convince patrons they are getting what they pay for and not more than they need. With this in mind, the menu at NoJa is an innovative blend of Mediterranean and Asian cooking methods, savory flavors and ingredients that we have termed Mediterrasian.

Very satisfied with the overall visit. Food was well prepared and the service was exceptional. Somewhat limited choices with the menu. Ambiance was pleasantly active. A bit pricy, but I highly recommend a visit. I do not think you will be disappointed.

Dinner was great ...everything about it. Only drawback was there happened to be a wedding there that night, so access to getting there was major problem as apparently that was same time as beginning of wedding festivities. Leaving was no issues, so all in all, the initial issues were quickly forgotten with our wonderful meal and super friendly waitress.
