One of the most-anticipated tenants at Birmingham’s new Pizitz Food Hall, the Ethiopian restaurant Ghion Cultural Hall, is opening today.

The restaurant anchors the southwest corner of the Pizitz building, which is at the intersection of 18th Street and Second Avenue North in downtown Birmingham.

The menu features lamb, beef and vegetarian dishes, as well as Ethiopian coffee.

Ghion Cultural Hall started in Atlanta, and the new location in the food hall is believed to be the first Ethiopian restaurant in Alabama, according to developer Bayer Properties.

“This will be what we think is the first Ethiopian restaurant in the state of Alabama,” Sam Heide, vice president of leasing for Bayer Properties, said in an earlier interview with AL.com.

The Pizitz Food Hall developers consulted with What To Eat in Birmingham food bloggers Scott Doty and Jessie Merlin to curate the many different global cuisines available in the food hall, and Doty and Merlin strongly urged them to include an Ethiopian restaurant in the mix, Heide said.

“When we first talked about what types of cuisine would go in the food hall, the What To Eat In Birmingham folks said, ‘You have to get an Ethiopian restaurant,'” Heide said.

“We were a little perplexed at first, but every person we walked through the food hall that was interested in opening a business, when we talked about Ethiopian food, their eyes just lit up.

“We went to Atlanta and met with this gentleman at Ghion Cultural Hall,” Heide continued. “It’s such a unique product. The way that you actually eat the food and the food itself are something that I think Birmingham is going to be real excited about.”
