4. Eliā€™sĀ Jerusalem Grill šŸ„™

If you’re looking for delicious and authentic Mediterranean food, you need to try Eli’s Jerusalem Grill. They have two locations in Birmingham, and serve up fresh, homemade Israeli eats. Their Vegetarian Plate is honestly one of the most beautiful meals I’ve ever seen with a taste to match, and I hear their homemade soups is pretty good too.

5. Urban Cookhouse šŸ„—

You’ve probably seen Urban Cookhouse around town. With locations in Crestline, Homewood, The Summit and Downtown, it’s obviously a Birmingham favorite. Their menu is fresh and features items sourced directly from Alabama farmers.
