We have been remiss in our duties to let Birmingham restaurant lovers know about an important event! But it's not too late to participate in the first-ever Birmingham Restaurant Week. This is a fantastic way to try some new restaurants without putting a big hole in your wallet.
Although they could do a better job of describing the concept on their website the deal is, participating restaurants offer a special menu for a fixed price of $10.10, $20.10 or $30.10.
For instance, at Bottega Cafe, for $10.10 you can get a small pizza and salad, with Jack Daniels chocolate gelato and cookies for dessert. For $20.10, you can go to Sol y Luna and get an appetizer of guacamole and chips, a second course of tomatillo lobster soft tacos (my favorite), and enjoy sugar and cinnamon churros for dessert. For $30.10, you could go to Veranda on Highland and have house-made Boudin balls or a salad with roasted butternut squash for an appetizer, for a second course choose betweesn seared gulf shrimp or Colorado lamb shank, and for dessert have fig and white chocolate bread pudding.
