The entire country knows that Birmingham is a destination for dining. And young chefs like Abhishek Sainju, the Nepalese chef-owner of Abhi Eatery + Bar in Mountain Brook Village, are an important part of the reason why.
Abhi (as he’s known to everyone) is one of several restaurateurs who have made the Magic City their home – by choice, not birth. They are sharing not just their foods but also their cultures in big, bold ways, and they are changing the ways we eat and gather and celebrate at the table – with a positive and exciting impact on our local food scene.
A self-trained chef, Abhi opened his namesake restaurant in Mountain Brook Village in November 2019. (For five years, and until recently, there was another popular Abhi location at The Summit. He’s planning to relocate it.) He serves sushi and Asian fusion dishes. All of Asia is his inspiration – including Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Thailand, India, China and, of course, Nepal.
