My parents are in town for four days and I am planning a tour-de-force of Birmingham restaurants while they are here (plus they have the credit card that can afford it) They are foodies from San Antonio who love wine bar/bistro type places and love all types of food. I want to take them to a nice mix of places that really show off the diversity of the town. Here's what I have so far, please suggest alternatives to help me give them the best weekend ever:
Day 1: Flight in: Dreamlands after the airport...start it off with the typical southern ribs
Day 2: Dinner reservations at Highlands B&G...they've heard great things and requested this one. Can't wait to try it myself.
Here's where I need help...
Day 3, lunch: I am looking for a fun lunch place in one of the neighborhoods like Cahaba Heights or Mountain Brook, something that would show off the city's 'hometown' atmosphere...I was thinking maybe chez lulu or the bakery?
Day 3, Dinner: I was thinking of taking them to something seafood-related...possibilities I've considered are: Hot & Hot, Ocean, and 26.....one question--which is better, ocean or 26?
Finally, Brunch on Sunday: I heard L. Indica cafe was great, also I've been to Jacksons....any other interesting brunch suggestions?
