This looks like a dream combo, right? (Gabby Gervais / Bham Now)

“This was the PERFECT summer appetizer. I love anything with a sweet touch of strawberries, and this was no exception. The goat cheese, drizzled honey, pecans and strawberries were an amazing combo, and the sourdough paired perfectly with the spread.”

2. Seasonal farro salad + sweet corn soup from brick & tin

“I know you’re probably thinking that’s it’s hot as blue blazes to be eating soup, but the sweet corn tastes like the essence of the season. Paired with the farro salad with yummy seasonal vegetables, it’s a perfect light summer dish.”

“I wasn’t sure what to expect with the zucchini fritter pita sandwich at Tasty Town, but it ended up being a dance party in the mouth. The fritters were like a fresh take on falafel, and the flavors and textures were just so satisfying.

Plus, the grapefruit and elderflower non-alcoholic cocktail was the Goldilocks taste of summer—light, refreshing and not at all too tart or too sweet…it was just right.”

Sharron Swain, Managing Content Producer

5. Chorizo tacos from Unos Tacos

“One of my favorites is Unos Tacos in The Pizitz! I ate there my first day at Bham Now and honestly haven’t stopped thinking about it since. I got the chorizo tacos—they were perfect! It was also my first time eating at The Pizitz, and now I’m on a mission to try the other restaurants inside.”

“I’ve been obsessed with Bettola’s sugo di pomodoro since I was in high school, and it’s still one of my absolute favorite dishes. The noodles are perfectly chewy and crispy, and the tomato sauce with fresh mozzarella is so good that I have to sop it all up with some crusty bread. Pair it all with an aperol spritz and you have some of the best food in Birmingham.”
