Foodies – are you ready to fall in love? Prepare your taste buds for a love fest of all things local – Birmingham Restaurant Week (BRW) presented by Spire returns for its Winter Edition Feb. 17-26, 2022. From fine dining to down-home cookin’, food and drink lovers with a taste for adventure can enjoy special breakfast, lunch or dinner 2, 3 and 4-course, prix-fixe menus ranging from $5 to $50 per person at approximately 40 restaurants.
Whether you’re trying something new or enjoying a longtime favorite, BRW makes it easy and affordable for everyone to get a taste of Birmingham’s acclaimed culinary and beverage community for 10 days. Keeping bellies full, hearts happy and restaurants cookin’ is something everyone can contribute toward during BRW!
To safely serve patrons who don’t want to dine in, participating businesses will again boast to-go and/or curbside options as well as traditional dine-in options. Many participating restaurants are making special accommodations to safely serve diners this winter by offering outdoor high-powered heaters, firepits, cabana tents and enclosed patios.
