What’s a progressive dinner?

Great question! A progressive dinner is a festive evening of dining out at a different spot for each course. We believe that Avondale is a perfect spot to have one of these dinners in Birmingham. Check it out!

1. Single-bite hors d’oeuvres

To start off your progressive dinner with a flavorful bang, try the mac n’ egg rolls from MELT. We promise this carb-icious starter will live in your head rent-free. You’ll love the mac + cheese stuffed egg rolls paired with their sweet and spicy chili glaze sauce.

If you’re more of a potato carb enthusiast, then grab Munchie’s best-loaded fries in town. We’re serious, they’re worthy of that title.

2. Best salad goes to…

Then Asian Crunch Salad at Avondale Common House wins best salad hands down, simply for the sesame ginger dressing + edamame combo. It’s the perfect light and fresh option for your progressive dinner in Avondale.

3. The must-get entree

Take your tastebuds to Latin America at Luna Latin Cuisine with the cachapa entree. This delectable sweet corn pancake stuffed with mozzarella cheese and a generous drizzle of crema will send you straight to Venezuela. Rolo e’ vivo!

Parkside on Fifth also is one of our go-to’s for an entree dish. Try the curry fried chicken, a lightly battered springer man chicken, with red curry, crushed peanuts and cilantro on top of a pile of steamed rice.

4. Drinks on me

Avondale’s newest addition, Munchie’s, should be your go-to spot for after-dinner in Avondale drinks. Try their signature drink, Munch Punch, a sweet beverage made with Deep Eddy Peach, Peach Syrup, Sour and Sprite.

Parkside on Fifth has great drinks too. Try The Whitney, a vodka, mama, hibiscus syrup, and lime craft cocktail.

5. Entertainment + more drinks
