After 24 years in its original location, 2180 11th Court South, Chris and Idie Hastings are moving Hot and Hot Fish Club to Pepper Place this fall.

Hot and Hot’s new location will open in early 2020 at The Pepper Place. The original location is now closed. The restaurant will increase in size. It will include main dining room seating, as well a bar space and patio. Another advantage of the new location is that it will be close in proximity to their other restaurant, OvenBird. And the location will not be the only change. At the new location, Hot and Hot’s second version will include small plates and casual fare.

The Hot and Hot Fish Club takes a modern approach to blending French, Southern, and California-styles of cooking, set against the backdrop of downtown Birmingham. Hot and Hot Fish Club's ever-changing dishes and cocktails executed by Chef/Co-Owner Chris Hastings and his team are inspired by Alabama, the local farmer’s harvest, and other artisans of every kind.

Before the farm-to-table cooking movement became the cultural zeitgeist it is today, Chris Hastings and other chefs have known that the closer you are to your food, the more flavorful and fresh it arrives to the table. Upon its inception in 1995, Hot and Hot Fish Club began to develop and utilize their extensive network of celebrated purveyors, foragers, and artisans who supply the Birmingham area with local fare, and continue this tradition today. These folks are considered the true heroes of Hot and Hot Fish Club, sharing a great passion for products and hard work that you can taste and see on the plate.
Relax and enjoy an intimate supper with the Hastings at Hot and Hot Fish Club. Reserve a seat at the chef’s counter with front row views of the open kitchen, in the main dining room, harvest room, or with satisfying snacks and cocktails at the bar at Hot and Hot Fish Club.

Hot and Hot Fish Club is owned by Chris and Idie Hastings. Chris Hastings also serves as executive chef at Hot and Hot Fish Club.
