Apprentice Cook Malik: "No sir! There's plenty more in the kitchen!"

Unfortunately, both Bottega Cafe and Little Savannah are not open on Sunday but there is Bright Star with its hearty Greek food, trout almondine, beef tenderloin tips, Greek moussaka and a variety of salads and sandwiches. A little to the south of Birmingham, but well worth the trip.

There is also Dreamland Barbecue with its sinfully delicious BBQ ribs ...

It appears that many Birmingham restaurants seem to be closed on Sundays.

Bright Star! Bright Star! Bright Star!

We make it a point to stop at Bright Star every time we pass B'ham (actually just o/s of B'ham) and schedule our trips so that we hit that area at lunch time. They can get very busy on Sunday w/ the "gay, after church crowd" so as long as you can beat the Baptists to lunch you should be okay. ":^)

Actually ended up at Jim n Nicks BBQ. The fried catfish was fine but the smoked beef brisket was miserable and the pork ribs were dull as dirt. The end.

Sorry it didn't go well. I used to spend a good bit of time in B'ham and Jim n Nicks was always one of my favorites but mainly for the pork, pig in the garden or onion rings. I understand from friends that Pat James Full Moon B-B-Q continues to be the best in town but I haven't tried it recently and everybody seems to have a different preference for their cue.
