Sample some of Birmingham’s Finest Culinary Offerings during Birmingham Restaurant Week 2017!
Last year we were asked to be official bloggers for REV’s Birmingham Restaurant Week. To say we had fun would be an understatement! From fast casual lunches, to white tablecloth dinners, we got to experience a vast array of our city’s culinary scene! It’s no wonder that Birmingham gets national and international attention, on a regular basis, for its food offerings!
Restaurant week provides an opportunity for you to sample multiple courses at various restaurants for a special fixed price! It challenged our preconceptions of certain restaurants and opened our eyes to how many top notch options are available in our area!
In addition to pre-fix menus, #BRW2017 hosts multiple events that provide a chance for you to get to know the cooks and chefs that continue turning out incredible dishes on a daily basis. You can also learn about wine and how to mix tasty cocktails, shaken not stirred.
Here is a rundown of the exciting Birmingham Restaurant Week events in 2017! Oh, and be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Happeninsintheham.com to get a mouth watering glimpse of our adventures as we traverse this culinary wonderland! We take no responsibility if we cause you to break a diet you are currently on, and please remember that it’s “the camera” that adds 10lbs…
