Birmingham Girls Night Out Recs?
A bunch of us from all over the country are getting together in Birmingham in a couple of weeks for a friend's gallery opening. We're all moms of toddlers and don't get out much anymore. Would love suggestions for some fun restaurants - we'll be doing BBQ with spouses and kids over the weekend, so looking for more upscale. Gallery is downtown and we're all staying at the Redmont Hotel.
I'll second the recommendation already made. In addition to those, if you like Thai and/or sushi, I'd recommend Surin West located in 5 Points. I'd recommend Ocean as well. Upscale casual with a lobster pot pie to die for!!! Oh! I almost forgot about 26. It has a funky atmosphere with flare. Plus if it's a nice night, they'll open up the front of the building.
Think the standards are going to be Highlands/Chez Fon Fon, Bottega/Cafe Bottega, Hot & Hot, and a few more-recent additions I haven't tried.
Say hi to tinky winky, la la, and po for me.
We did the Art Walk a few years ago and really enjoyed it. Looks like it just happened last weekend.
