My wife and I are relocating to Birmingham and are going to be up here through Monday afternoon. We ate at Milo's yesterday (good burgers) and La Dolce Vita last night (good Italian, seemed like nice ambiance, but we did take-out).
We are staying at the Courtyard by Marriott in Hoover (1824 Montgomery Hwy South). And we will probably be hanging out at The Summit, since that is where my wife is going to be working. Any suggestions for stuff near where we'll be (any genre) is great---we prefer NOT ultra expensive, and we prefer no national chains.
ALSO, we are willing to drive anywhere for a killer salad, and anywhere for a dynamite breakfast, no cost limitations there. And is the Purple Onion best for Greek? Or will any Greek do?
PS---If you have suggestions for apartment complexes for us to look at, please contact me off board (preferably a complex close to The Summit, but quality is most important).
