Ten BRW restaurants will serve a signature bite to give attendees a taste of their special Restaurant Week menus.

The summer’s edition of BRW will benefit FeedBHM, a food rescue program of Grace Klein Community, an educational and charitable nonprofit providing support to food-insecure families in the Birmingham area. By rescuing food that would typically go to a landfill, FeedBHM is able to fill the stomachs and pantries of those in need. With an overall vision to eliminate hunger and food waste in Birmingham by 2025, this is the perfect partnership for BRW.
There are only a few more days until Birmingham Restaurant Week begins and we have officially started making our plans. What restaurants will you be visiting during BRW?
