So I made myself a promise that if I hit the gym hard work out and eat right during the week that I could treat myself on some weekends. I believe that everybody deserves a cheat day no matter what. If you don’t treat your self from time to time you will most def get into a situation where you find yourself at Krispy Kreme doughnuts and then you will want to kick your own ass the next day. With that being said, I take two weekends out of the month where I try some of the new restaurants that we have here in Birmingham. If you haven’t heard Birmingham is becoming a hub of new culinary destinations and it’s my mission to try every last one of them .
If you are looking for an authentic Philly Cheese steak then T-bones is your spot. Located right in the heart of Five Points South, T-Bones will not disappoint. I especially love how they cook the food right in front of you. Fresh, HOT and delicious plus they tell me they fly the bread in from Philadelphia ! Hell Yeah !
The Lakeview district is soooooo bomb ! Literally there are about five of my favorite restaurants on one block but we opted out from going to Hattie B’s and went to SkyCastle. First the decor of the restaurant is super cute with all of the chic couches and cute little tables to eat at. I was surprised at the look of the restaurant seeing it doubles as a sports bar. We went at night so the lighting was bright and colorful, it is most definitely Instagram picture worthy. SkyCastle has this really easy menu and I just had to try the signature drink ” the Lakeview “!
” The Lakeview ” cocktail was beyond delicious .
Since this place is dubbed a sports bar I was in search for an amazing burger. I decided to try the Mediterranean Lamb Burger and it did not disappoint. My burger was juicy, fresh and with a side of thick potato fries it was a home run for me.
My companion for the evening decide on the signature Sky Castle Burger with a fresh side of collard greens . Don’t worry I sampled their food as well and it was delicious !
Being a fashionista and a foodie is a hard job but I think I can manage! If you are looking for some new eatiers check out T-Bones in Five Points South and SkyCastle Bham down in the Lakeview district you won’t be disappointed .
