This is one of my favorite spots in Birmingham. The menu is great and you can find something unique or stick with one of their simpler items. No matter what you choose you will be happy. The burger is always on point. It's a great place to lunch, as well!

Chez Fon Fon is next door to Highlands Bar and Grill and is another Frank Stitt gem. We call it Little Highlands. The food is just as terrific and the atmosphere is more "laid back." As you would expect, the service is impeccable. If you go in the Spring or Fall, see if seating is available on the back patio.

This place is a special occasion price point but so very worth it. The drinks are unique, the food very French, and the wait staff is knowledgeable without being condescending. It is small and quite busy but my friend and I felt well attended.

Consistently excellent, and affordable, this Frank Stitt restaurant is always a sure bet for great food and cocktails. You'll see diners in summer shorts to business suits.

I love the food, atmosphere and location. My only problem is that sometimes it is very loud and difficult to carry on a conversation - but everyone is always so "festive" there.

This is one of our favorite restaurants for lunch and dinner. The hamburger is really one of the best. I also like the Croque Monsieur for lunch. Dinner I go for the steak with frites. The frites are what you get in France or Belgium. My wife likes the trout. Dessert has to be a slice of the cocoanut cake…love... More

Food is always good. The place is always cheerful. It's one of my favorite restaurants. The only problem is that they don't take reservations so you may have to wait for a table. It's worth the wait.
