Birmingham, Alabama

Several acclaimed white tablecloth restaurants grace the Birmingham dining scene, helping make the city a bona fide culinary destination in the South. Establishments like the famous Highlands Bar and Grill and the Hot and Hot Fish Club combine traditional Southern ingredients with sophisticated techniques and presentation, evident in dishes like stone ground baked grits cooked with thyme, and fried green tomatoes served with crawfish tails and remoulade. Barbecue and other casual specialties also abound. A true Birmingham institution, Pete’s Famous Hot Dogs, is renowned for the “All the Way” dog, which is smothered with sauerkraut, onions, mustard, and a special sauce.
