Rather it be from the quaint, rustic details, the welcoming staff, the cozy, intimate setting or the amazing food, there is no reason NOT to visit this place. This popular farm to table restaurant THE FIG TREE is a must visit. It's tucked away in Cahaba Heights in a charming neighborhood of Birmingham that I feel is worthy visiting off the beaten path.
I was fortunate enough to not only meet with the owner and visionary of these amazing entrees but he was kind enough to let me sample to my heart's content. What better way than to have my own private tour?
The dishes have a modern flair to southern cuisine. Some of my personal favorites were the Fried Green Tomatoes, the Pork Belly and Mole Sauce, Sauteed Tile Fish and the seared Pork Chop are just to name a handful.
Being part of the Birmingham community is really special because there are so many gifted chefs out there willing to share their gifts with us. We need to take advantage of this and support our local chefs.
The Fig Tree is open for lunch 11 to 2 and reopens for dinner from 5 to 10.. Also, you can't forget their popular brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
I assure you, I plan to return and hope you guys check them out soon!!
