You might think that being in the city means giving up some of that homestyle cooking Alabamians love so much, but don’t worry, The Southern Kitchen & Bar has everything Mama can make and then some. I mean, what’s Alabama without fried green tomatoes, deluxe mac and cheese and a sweet apple crisp? Honestly, you won’t even need a menu since everything that comes out of the kitchen is guaranteed to be delicious.

Bottle & Bone isn’t your average shop. It’s a café, event space and market all in one. This fast-casual butcher shop made its debut in 2014 and has been steadily attracting carnivores ever since. You can build your own six pack of beer, pick up some wine, check out their selection of Birmingham souvenirs or get a fresh cut sirloin. Whether you want to dine-in or grill out at home, Bottle & Bone’s got your back.
