If you grew up in Birmingham during the Pizitz Department Store glory days, being inside of this building will definitely bring back memories. Saturday afternoon's downtown were a lot different back then.
These days, as a re-purposed structure, an entirely new set of memories are being made.
If you have not been to The Pizitz Food Hall in Downtown Birmingham, you gotta go! Plain & simple.
There is something for EVERY kind of appetite & budget.
I had a business meeting with a start-up company on a recent Saturday and was excited when the Food Hall was suggested. I'm always jumping at the chance to try something new each time.
We decided to mix it up a little and grab a little grub from more than one food stall.
From the menu at Ichicoro Imoto, we decided on a couple of Karaage Rice Bowls. Mine consisted of roasted chicken, rice, pickled veggies, ginger, scallions & garlic. My lunch mate's consisted of all of that with an added soft boiled egg.
One note about Saturday's at The Pizitz Food Hall, although there is ample seating, it gets pretty crowded and it's definitely a day when families gather for brunch & lunch. So arrive early or be prepared for the large crowds.
We shared an order of ground turkey egg rolls from Mo:Mo: with a house made dipping sauce. These egg rolls are pretty amazing. Although their famous dumplings are a standout, I'd definitely try these again.
We washed down our meals with water, but later opted to try a couple of craft cocktails from The Louis Bar at The Pizitz Food Hall which is located in the very center of the food hall. In addition to cocktails, they have a vast selection of wine, beer for those over 21. I tried a glass of their eggnog & my lunch mate had the apple cider mimosa. Just the right finishing touch a very productive meeting.
As usual, The Pizitz Food hall provided a great experience & food variety and makes for a great meeting space.
