What is a man to do when he cannot find a place to eat? When Eli Markshtien, and his wife, Laurel and family, moved to Birmingham he could not find an Israeli restaurant. So he opened his own and began cooking his grandmother's recipes—solving the problem and also fulfilling his dream of his own Israeli restaurant.

I love fine dining restaurant bars. Here I can pop in, eat and drink well without having to reserve a table in the dining room. Or when I do have reservations, a relaxing before dinner drink at the bar extends the evening on the front end.

Ever been to Flip Burger Boutique at The Summit? If not, you are missing more than a great hamburger. Flip Burger Boutique not only has a cool concept, their food is as unique as their “twisted” ambience.

Ocean recently completed a lovely remodel of the restaurant. But one thing that has not changed at Ocean is its wide net of fresh seafood cooked to perfection.

nabeel's market productsNabeel’s Market offers imported and house made gourmet to go.

Nabeel’s Market brings imported foods and beverages to Homewood, Alabama. Here at Nabeel’s Market, you can also take home many of the same dishes served at Nabeel’s Café, next door. I have shopped at Nabeel’s Market for years and have found products that I cannot get anywhere else in Birmingham. International beers and cheeses, as well as their own dressing, soups, dips, spreads, salads are among the popular cold case items. Their gourmet to go also includes entrees from Nabeel’s Café. And this place is an herb and spice market in itself.
