Our Story

Birmingham Restaurant Week (BRW) presented by Spire celebrates the city’s burgeoning culinary reputation. From Avondale to Five Points South, Mountain Brook to Hoover, and beyond, locally owned and operated restaurants are leading the revitalization of Birmingham. Our continued goal for BRW is to demonstrate to locals, the region and the world why Birmingham is the South’s most vibrant culinary destination. We want to support the local culinary industry and community by encouraging guests to order great local food and drinks, whether it’s via To-Go, Curbside Pickup or dining in with restaurants’ new safety precautions including socially distanced seating, mask requirements and more.

Normally a 10-day event, this year’s BRW provides an additional eight days of Second Helpings to maximize sales for area businesses due to COVID-19 and to allow patrons more opportunity to frequent participating businesses. The next 18-day event will take place January 14-31, 2021.

Food and drink lovers with a taste for adventure can enjoy special lunch or dinner prix-fixe menus ranging from $5 to $50 per person – making it easy and affordable for everyone to enjoy a taste of Birmingham’s diverse dishes. Participation is welcomed from local restaurants, food trucks and bars throughout metro Birmingham, including the City of Birmingham, Mountain Brook, Vestavia, Homewood, Hoover, Trussville and other neighboring cities.

BRW will be promoted in local/regional media through extensive social media campaigns, print, digital and traditional media. Throughout the history of BRW, more than 1.2 million BRW menus have been sold, raising over $24.5 million in gross receipt sales and generating over $2.2 million in sales tax for local cities. In 2019, an estimated 108,000 meals were served, generating more than $2.1 million in total gross revenue to participating restaurants. BRW has also raised more than $75,000 for local nonprofits, which is a goal of BRW to continue doing this year.
