About Birmingham Restaurant Week

In the spring of 2010 James Little, now the district manager of REV Birmingham (REV) returned from an Atlanta visit and enthusiastically shared his dining experiences during Atlanta Restaurant Week with STYLE Advertising partners Chuck Cargal and Bill Stoeffhaas. At the time Little served as director of the Five Points South Merchant Group and STYLE was employed as the group’s advertising and marketing firm. Intrigued with the idea of launching a similar restaurant promotion for Birmingham, the trio began brainstorming what ultimately led to the birth of BRW 2010. Since then, the James Little – STYLE team has joined forces with REV Birmingham, as Little became its district manager. According to REV CEO David Fleming, In addition to providing a needed boost in business for restaurants during the slower summer months, BRW’s Preview Parties have provided a fundraising vehicle for local causes. This is truly one of our city’s greatest annual events, and we are proud to be a partner in its production. We look forward to another great year of celebrating Birmingham food!
