The owners of Vinology Wine Bar and Restaurant in Ann Arbor have opened a more casual concept at 210 South Old Woodward in downtown Birmingham. Called The Bird & The Bread, the new venue features a southern European style menu — including grilled octopus, thin crust pizzas with smoked duck sausage, and stout-braised lamb shank — and a homier style.

As for the name, co-owner Kristin Jonna says it keeps true to the more whimsical, family-oriented feel of the restaurant. “When my twins were born, my dad (John Jonna) nicknamed them ‘The Bird’ and ‘The Bread.’ My daughter came out looking like a chick that had just hatched, she had this little fuzzy head, and she was so tiny. And my son, he didn’t move much and was always bundled up, like a little loaf of bread,” she says.
