The restaurant on Detroit Avenue is changing hands.
But the new owners say that patrons shouldn’t expect too many changes to the upscale restaurant.
The owners of , Mickey Krivosh, and his son, Ryan Krivosh, recently purchased Three Birds at 18515 Detroit Avenue.
The previously owner, James Bell — who has owned the restaurant for the past eight years — decided to sell the restaurant, hoping to spend more time with his family.
The new owners will keep the name Three Birds, but have agreed to change the name within six months.
But that’s about the only change expected.
All of the employees are staying onboard and Chef Rachael Spieth will stay in the kitchen. The menu is also expected to remain the same.
However, there are plans in the works for a jazz club, to be situated at the rear of the adjacent property, according to city officials.
The exchange marks the first time in more than 80 years that a member of the Bell family has not occupied that block.
Last month, Bonne Bell — the international cosmetics company once headquartered in Lakewood — announced it was closing the doors at Detroit Avenue and Graber Drive and moving operations to the Westlake location.
