ABOUT

Birmingham Restaurant Week (BRW) presented by Spire celebrates the city’s flourishing 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 and exciting culinary destination. We want to support the local culinary industry and community by encouraging guests to order great local food and drinks and to support Birmingham’s extraordinary food and beverage establishments. More than 1.2 million BRW menus have been sold throughout the history of the event, bringing in over $24.5 million in gross receipts and more than $2.2 million in sales tax for nearby cities. 

Now in its 14th year, the 10-day BRW event brings together the many different cuisines in our city. The upcoming BRW event is scheduled for Feb. 22 – March 3, 2024 with more than 60 restaurants, food trucks and bars expected to participate. The participating establishments will provide prix-fixe breakfast, lunch and/or dinner offerings, along with specials on beer, wine and cocktails. Adventuresome foodies and drink enthusiasts can take advantage of these special menus with prices varying from $5 to $50 per person, making it simple and affordable for everyone to sample the variety of foods served in Birmingham. 

Local eateries, food trucks and bars located across metro Birmingham are encouraged to participate, including those in the cities of Birmingham, Mountain Brook, Vestavia, Homewood, Hoover, Trussville and others nearby. Only locally owned and operated eateries, coffee shops, bars and food trucks are permitted to join – no national chains. This enables us to highlight Birmingham’s locally owned companies and highlight the city’s flourishing culinary scene.  

BRW and its participating businesses will be promoted through extensive social media campaigns; print, digital, TV and radio advertising; traditional media coverage from local and regional media outlets; and with branded yard signs, posters, table tents, bill inserts and more. Advertisements will direct the public to view participating restaurant and bar menus on our Eat/Drink page, so patrons can plan their 10-day culinary plan of attack. 

In addition to helping the culinary industry in Birmingham, BRW donates to a nonprofit that supports the food industry. Restaurant Week has given more than $100,000 to local nonprofits and community organizations over the years. After a successful BRW 2023 – Summer Edition, we were honored to donate $2,500 to Community Kitchens of Birmingham, allowing them to feed the food insecure in the Birmingham community. We are proud to help them help others in need in our community with this donation and look forward to giving back for many years to come!
