Downtown Royal Oak's The Morrie will expand with a second location in downtown Birmingham.

The AFB Hospitality Group restaurant, which says it offers "eclectic roadhouse-style cuisine" and hosts live music, is targeting a summer opening at 260 N. Old Woodward Ave.

Executive chef Derik Watson's menu at the second location will hold many of the same dishes as the Royal Oak location, but Birmingham will also offer pizza and a salad bar.

Biddison Architecture + Design will design the 7,952-square-foot, 214-seat restaurant, which includes a 33-seat bar and an outdoor patio.

The new restaurant is part of a plan to open five new locations across southeast Michigan.
