Soup and Sympathy 

Pair Veggie Soup with Ginger Flu Buster from The Pantry by Stone Hollow Farmstead. 

By Jan Walsh  

Stone Hollow Farmstead, located in Harpersville, Alabama, is home to hundreds of goats and chickens and a few jersey cows, raised on the grass based system. And the goats convert grass into rich milk that is made into a variety of farmstead cheeses. In addition to the cheeses, The Pantry by Stone Hollow Farmstead, located in Mountain Brook, is the place to shop for those of us striving to eat organically. It includes a juice and smoothie bar and groceries canned at the farm.

It is difficult to believe that this is the 12th year I have shared my 50 favorite dishes in Birmingham. Back when print was king in November 2006, I published the first list “50 Great Food Finds” as a cover story in a local magazine. The following March I launched Birmingham Restaurants website, which began publishing “50 Favorites” as annual awards. And 600 delectable dishes later, here we are!

Ocean Restaurant celebrated its 15th anniversary in March 2017. Executive chef and owner, George Reis paid tribute to former chefs and bartenders by featuring them as guest chefs and bartenders during the week-long celebration. But after the celebration and shared memories, there was no looking back for Ocean Restaurant. Reis immediately rolled out an exciting new menu. And this is only the beginning for this restaurant, as it aspires to elevate its cuisine, creating cutting-edge seafood dishes you won’t find anywhere else in town.

Marre and Allen Bar and Kitchen features chef driven, locally sourced fare. Here Chef Chad Schofield incorporates local and regional, in season, fruits and vegetables into his made from scratch dishes. Also influencing both the product selection and menu choices is Birmingham Marriott’s General Manager, Chris Townsley—bringing his culinary and wine background and expertise to the table. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week and for brunch on weekends. The Location Marre and Allen Bar and Kitchen is located inside the Birmingham Marriott, off Highway 280 across the Highway from Grandview Medical Center. The hotel property underwent a multi-million-dollar renovation in 2017. If you have been to the hotel you will not recognize it. If you have not it was worth the wait.
