At Red Bowl’s Dim Sum a few weekends ago, we struck up a conversation with two very nice ladies across from us who were clearly foodies.  As we bonded over the amazing dumplings and fried eggplant, we shared restaurant recommendations.  Even though we’ve been at this blogging thing for almost two years, we still get recommendations for places we haven’t heard of all the time.  So as we sat there talking about Birmingham’s amazing restaurant scene, we kept our ears open for the next “blogworthy” find.   “Have you tried Brito’s?”  one of our new friends asked, her voice brimming with excitement....

So, you may have noticed that our last post was an entire month ago.  No, we have not eaten at every restaurant in Bham — a question we get asked, usually by people who have never been to Bham…. really?!?  Seriously.  We have not moved on to another hobby.  We haven’t lost our creative juices.  To be perfectly honest, and not to sound like snobs, we’ve eaten at several restaurants this month that weren’t blogworthy.  We usually hit a dud or two between winners but this month hasn’t been as fruitful, sadly.  And we will NOT compromise our quality just...
