New place with well deserved extremely positive reviews: Fancy’s on Fifth

The restaurant scene in Birmingham is surprisingly strong for the size of the city. Many new restaurants, coffee shops and bars.

Located in the Avondale neighborhood in what looks like an old warehouse it’s an open space that is well laid out with a bar and tables near the windows. Advertised as a burger and oyster house the food is plentiful and very good.

Another example of things go better with pork….a soft shell crab BLT! Excellent! Finished with a cookie butter mousse.
