Primeaux is a restaurant and wine bar with a European flare located in the Summit Lifestyle Center in Birmingham, Alabama. Inspired by the “slow food” movement of southern Europe, Primeaux offers a calm alternative to the loud, fast and mass marketed food choices offered on street corners everywhere. Our goal is to offer quality fresh and local ingredients put together using authentic and traditional cooking styles in a casual atmosphere. Like nowhere else in Birmingham, Primeaux is sexy and sophisticated, yet stripped of the pretense of a traditional fine dining experience. Baloney and Bordeaux?? Yes! Absolutely… Fried Egg Sandwich and Champagne?? You bet!!

At Primeaux we invite you to pop by for a chef created salad of locally grown vegetables and greens for lunch; to savor our interpretation of classic French sandwiches like our decadent Croque Monsieur; or to feast on Chef’s Steak Frites with friends and a great bottle of wine. If crafts beers are your thing… wash done our Lamb Sliders with the finest locally brewed Alabama beer available or linger over a cup of our gourmet French press coffee and decadent deserts after a show. At Primeaux we pride ourselves on creating gourmet delights as well as the perfect Waygu hamburger and Parmesan fries. Primeaux is the perfect spot for lunch, happy hour, date night, or just a relaxing night out. Sit… listen to jazz… chat with friends… nibble on a cheese plate… sample a new favorite wine.

With a small but thoughtful selection of quality cheeses selected by our resident cheese monger and wines handpicked by our resident sommelier available for retail sale, not only can you have a great meal, but you can take home your favorites as well. Primeaux Cheese and Vino is a place to pick up a last minute gift or enjoy a plate of handmade European cheese while chatting with friends. In addition, Primeaux offers unique catering opportunities either in our fun Summit location or in your private space.
