A Local's City Guide to Birmingham, Alabama

We often have out-of-town visitors in our Birmingham, Alabama showroom. There are many reasons people visit Birmingham; concerts, work conferences, the Barber Porsche racing school, the civil right memorials, but guests always ask us for suggestions of local restaurants. Birmingham has become quite the food city, especially gaining national recognition as such when Highland’s Bar and Grill was named Best Restaurant in the US and their pastry chef named Best Pastry Chef in the same year.
We always said we should create a list of our favorite restaurants to offer our guests, and here it is.

If you find yourself in the Birmingham area, we would love for you to visit our showroom in Mountain Brook Village. Come by and host a Bracelet Design Lab party for you and your guests! You can call 205-420-1949 if you have any questions. You can learn more through this blog post or book your party directly below.
