Frank Stitt’s Bottega Restaurant and Café are favorites of many Birmingham residents. Looking at myself and several of our Bham Now team members, here. We kicked off May with some great news—Bottega is now open for curbside pickup after being closed for several weeks due to COVID-19. Get all the delicious details here!

The Reason You’re Here

First things first, people. The food. Bottega has combined its kitchens for one curbside menu featuring some of their classics. Check it out below! If you’re drooling over everything and need help narrowing it down, my personal recommendations are the white pie pizza or the risotto primavera.

Not to mention those cocktail kits… with premium spirits and enough to go around, these kits will take your weekend to the next level.

Small businesses (especially restaurants) are getting hit hard right now. Bham Now loves eating local almost as much as we love using our platform for good. We’ve put together a master database where local businesses and nonprofits of all shapes and sizes can be featured for free. Check them out at the links below:
