It was announced on Feb. 10 that Post Office Pies will open a second location this spring at Lane Parke in Mountain Brook Village.
Local chefs John Hall and Brandon Cain opened the first location of the pizzeria in Avondale in 2014.
A grand opening celebration of Post Office Pies is scheduled to occur during Lane Parke’s first annual signature event, The Spring Edit, which will be held April 2 from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
“We felt that there was a need in this market for another quality spot that caters to all ages either after a youth sporting event or a couple on a date night. We envision this location to be a neighborhood gathering place that will be open 7 days per week,” said Hall, in a released statement.
In September of 2019, the restaurant was featured on USA Today’s list of the top 30 pizzerias in the country.
Prior to opening Post Office pies, Hall worked with celebrated chefs – including Frank Stitt and Lea Linster – as well as acclaimed restaurants throughout the United States – Per Se, Gramercy Tavern, Momofuku Ssam and Highlands Bar and Grill.
Cain has worked for Emeril Lagasse in New Orleans, and returned to Birmingham to work alongside his mentor, George Reis, at Ocean before opening Saw’s Soul Kitchen and Roots and Revelry.
The 3,444 square-foot restaurant will open across from A’Mano, B Prince and Happy Olive and adjacent to Platinum Pilates in Phase I of Lane Parke.
“Post Office Pies is the latest positive step in the evolution of the Mountain Brook dining scene,” said Mary Beyer Lell, principal at Crawford Square Real Estate Advisors. “Our team continues to work toward the goal of providing this community with the type of retail that they want, and we will be making more exciting announcements of future tenants in the coming weeks.”
The new addition to Lane Parke is the latest major tenant announcement at the retail center.
“The recent momentum at Lane Parke is exciting to see,” John Evans, owner/developer of Lane Parke. commented. “Post Office Pies is another great complement to the group of retailers that are coming together at Lane Parke.”
