I'm traveling (too briefly!) through Birmingham for work, and I've never been. I'll probably only have one (maybe two?) opportunities to check out the local food scene, and would love some recommendations. I live in Los Angeles and I've been fortunate enough to eat all over the country, but I'd say my true Southern dining experiences are lacking. Where do I go around (or close to) downtown Birmingham to fill that void? I've read a lot about Niki's and Irondale, and both sound delicious, but I'm open to options!
