This tucked-away Italian restaurant in Homewood has been a favorite among locals since its opening in 2003. Authentic Italian dishes in a warm and inviting atmosphere make any meal feel like a special occasion. Menu favorites include a variety of antipasti like wine-poached littleneck clams and pistachio-crusted goat cheese; fresh pasta classics like linguini with clams, lasagna, and wild mushroom ravioli; and delicious chicken, veal, beef, and seafood entrées. Make reservations for the main dining room or visit the adjacent wine bar dining area where no reservations are needed. Gianmarco’s is located at 721 Broadway Street in Homewood, AL.


Enjoy the freshest of fresh seafood and delicious house cocktails at Ocean, one of Birmingham’s multiple-award-winning restaurants (accolades include AAA Four Diamond Awards for the past 12 years). Menu offerings include delicious spins on favorites like oysters on the half-shell, sushi, seafood entrées, whole fish, and more. Enjoy a casual dinner with friends in the patio bar or a date-worthy dinner in the contemporary and elegant main dining room. Ocean is located in the heart of Birmingham’s Southside, at 1218 20th Street South.

Hot and Hot Fish Club

Renowned Chef Chris Hastings hit a home run among Birmingham diners with Hot and Hot Fish Club, which blends French, Southern, and California culinary nuances in modern and innovative dishes. The airy dining room and intimate bar both offer menu items inspired by Alabama and the local farmers and purveyors who supply fresh ingredients. The menu changes frequently to ensure peak freshness and seasonality, but everything that comes out of the kitchen is thoughtfully prepared and reliably delectable. Hot and Hot is located at 2180 11th Court South in Birmingham.
