Fresh for Less: Alabama Gulf Seafood Highlights During Birmingham and Alabama Restaurant Weeks

Perhaps you saw a few months ago that, among other notable food awards, Birmingham was named America’s #1 Next Hot Food City by Zagat.com. And that’s a title worth celebrating.

But many of us can’t afford to eat at Birmingham’s wonderful array of restaurants on a regular basis—or at all.

Enter Birmingham Restaurant Week, running August 14 through 23, the tastiest time of the year in the Magic City.

And for everyone outside of Alabama’s biggest city, Alabama Restaurant Week provides the same great deals in a number of locations.

For one week (or ten days, really), some of Alabama’s finest restaurants offer great discounts on fantastic meals. It’s a great opportunity to sample something out of the ordinary, whether it’s a high-end dining room or a new spot you’ve been meaning to check out.

And naturally, with the wonderful bounty coming from Alabama’s Gulf Coast, there’s always plenty of Alabama Gulf Seafood on the menu.
