Ann Delisi: Detroit Free Press announces Tallulah as Restaurant of the Year Classic
The restaurant has been operating out of Birmingham, Mich. since 2010.
The Detroit Free Press officially kicks off the reveal of their 2023 Best New Restaurants list this week, starting with naming Tallulah Wine Bar & Bistro the Restaurant of the Year Classic.
In telling me about her experience at Tallulah, Freep restaurant and dining critic Lyndsay C. Green praised the versatility that the Birmingham restaurant offers to patrons.
“It was really nice to get to see what Tallulah is doing — and they’ve been doing it for a really long time. It’s a wine bar and a bistro, so it’s a great place to get a phenomenal glass of wine — you can share a bottle with a friend, which is what I often end up doing,” says Green. “You can have really great seafood, or you can have pasta…made in house, or you can have what I had recently, which was a great pork chop on the menu that was sort of Korean BBQ-style. They just really are continuing year after year to excel in both wine and the food that they offer.”

Tallulah opened in early 2010 by founder Mindy Lopus, but has since been sold to current owners Mario and Martina Camaj.
