Madam restaurant opens Thursday in sumptuous Daxton Hotel in Birmingham

One of the first upscale, high-profile restaurant openings of 2021, Madam debuts Thursday inside the new Daxton Hotel in Birmingham. 

The ground-floor restaurant with a sleek, contemporary design will serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, and has an attached bar and lounge, also with a modern look. The Daxton is operated by the same team behind the Detroit Foundation Hotel and Apparatus Room restaurant in downtown Detroit. 

The hotel’s owners have hired executive chef Garrison Price, an Illinois native who most recently managed restaurants in New York City. He’s worked under famous chef and cookbook author Jean-Georges Vongerichten, who has restaurants around the world. Price has worked as executive chef at Manhattan restaurants Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria and Il Fiorista.

“I’m super excited to be back, to be part of a smaller community,” said Price, who spent summers in Michigan while growing up. “Leaving New York was a tough decision, but I have family here and I think that’s what the pandemic taught us … what’s really important. I’ve been chasing my career for so long, this was a great kind of mix of both of those things, to be able to have the opportunity at Daxton and Madam and also be a little closer to home.”
