Diner FAQ

When is Birmingham Restaurant Week?

BRW 2019 is August 16-25.

How do I participate in BRW?

No passes, tickets or coupons are required to enjoy BRW. Diners simply visit any of BRW’s participating restaurants. Some restaurants do take reservations, and when that is the case, we’d recommend doing so. Be sure to ask your server for the BRW menu if you aren’t given one upon being seated.

How much does BRW cost?

Prices vary by restaurant and meal. Price points range from $10 to $50 in $5 increments per person for a wide variety of multi-course, prix-fixe menus. Be sure to check each restaurant’s menu for specific details and offerings.

Where can I see each restaurant’s menu?

Menus can be viewed by visiting the Restaurants tab above. If a menu is not available, that means it has not been finalized or submitted by the restaurant yet, so be sure to check back! The menu submission deadline for participating restaurants is Aug. 1, 2019.

Are reservations required?

No. Reservations are strongly encouraged where available, but walk-ins are also welcomed and appreciated. To make a reservation, diners should contact restaurants directly. Restaurant phone numbers and website addresses can be found in the Restaurants tab.

Does BRW offer vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free options?

Yes. While not every restaurant is able to cater to each dietary preference, you can search our participants list and sort by dietary preference to view restaurants offering menus in line with your lifestyle.

Does BRW offer children’s menus?

Menu offerings are ultimately left to the discretion of each restaurant to create and prepare. If a participant does offer a children’s menu, you will see it when viewing the restaurant’s menu in our Restaurants tab. You can also choose to order from the restaurant’s regular menu during BRW, including children’s menus normally available at restaurants.

Will BRW host any events?

Select restaurants and chefs will host specialty meals and events for the most fervent foodies. Price, time, location and ticketing will vary depending on the restaurant host and type of event. Please visit our Events page for a detailed run-down of each event taking place during BRW.

Please note, that while these events are happening during and are promoted by BRW, they are not sponsored or hosted by BRW.

There's a restaurant I really want to be in BRW. How can I make it happen?

Tell the restaurant manager or owner about us, and have them contact us and submit an application.
