Birmingham Restaurant Week will once again celebrate the city’s acclaimed culinary culture by offering incentives for Birmingham-area residents to revisit their favorite restaurants and bars or to experience recently opened venues for the first time.
More than 30 restaurants participated in 2011, and around 40 are expected to participate in its third edition this year.
“We are pleased to offer this opportunity to residents of Birmingham and to the restaurants that serve our community,” said James Little, creator and director of BRW. “It is our hope that this 10-day event will draw attention to the top- notch dining opportunities right here in our hometown.”
Restaurants will offer special two and/or three-course prix-fixe lunch and/ or dinner menus in the $5, $10, $20 and $30 per person range throughout the 10-day
event. The menu also includes a healthy kid’s menu component, brunch offerings and drink specials.
Several new events have been added to the schedule for the week that will further enhance BRW 2012 and its reach including two Beer Saturday events, which will feature beer tastings from Good People and Avondale breweries. To celebrate the kickoff of BRW 2012, a Preview Party will be held on Wednesday, August 15 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Vulcan Park and Museum. All proceeds from this event will benefit Vulcan Park and Museum. The Wineology event, which made its debut last year, will again be held at The Wine Loft on Tuesday, August 21.
