It’s my favorite time of the year! Springtime means mudbug season. What two better things could you ask for, and R&R Seafood is an amazing spot to experience both. Their crawfish are, hands-down, among the best in town. Once cooked, they’re coated in delicious spices so you really get to savor all of the flavor, along with a great view of Mobile Bay.” — Jack McCownOwner, Atchison Home

One of the best new additions to Midtown, Nixon’s has perfected the throw-back family-friendly atmosphere of your neighborhood drug store. Try the ‘Have a Cigar,’ their take on a Cuban sandwich featuring ham, pulled pork, Swiss cheese, Wickles pickles and Creole mustard.  This is the perfect place to meet friends for a draft beer or wine on a Friday night as much as it’s the perfect place for lunch with grandparents on Sunday.Kasee HeisterhagenAssistant United States Attorney

We couldn’t wait to try Sage in Fairhope after their recent remodel with the goal of ‘traditional and new Mediterranean & Lebanese cuisine flavors offered with a modern creative approach.’ We shared grape leaves, baba ghanouj and garlic labneh with olive oil and warmed pita. These were outstanding! Then we shared beef shawarma on hummus and NYC chicken shawarma. The leftovers were as delicious the next day.B’Beth WeldonArtist

“The Noble South offers big flavor in a comfortable setting and, for lunch, they have a variety of proteins that you may pair with your choice of up to three sides. During my most recent visit, I chose the  pork chops with sides of sweet potato fries and collard greens. The two chops were lemon-pepper seasoned, giving them a robust and satisfying flavor. The fries were waffle-cut for a fun spin on a traditional side, and the collard greens were a bowl of savory goodness.” — Carl HarperVice President, Harper Technologies, LLC
