For Francine Prose, an amusement-park trip as a young girl led to a ride on the Spook-a-Rama and later to a prized Diane Arbus photo of the same ride.

- One Day, One Place: Tasty bite of Deep South in Birmingham
By Larry Bleiberg - Thursday Jun 15, 2017
The former steel town’s restaurants have won national acclaim, winning James Beard Awards and profiles in food magazines. While there are plenty of other reasons to visit — last month the city dedicated a National Park Service civil rights monument — it’s easy to plan a day just devoted to food. Start your dining adventure a few blocks away at the city’s newest culinary gem, the Pizitz Food Hall, a 1923 flagship department store building shuttered for decades and reopened just a few months ago. The developers relied on a pair of local food bloggers to select its dining spots, so order without fear. Locals are abuzz about Ghion Cultural Hall, the state’s first Ethiopian restaurant, but you’ll want to try Alabama Biscuit Co., which uses locally sourced sprouted spelt flour. Toppings range from almond butter to farm eggs to goat cheese. The former Dr Pepper bottling plant schedules open-air culinary demonstrations from local and visiting celebrity chefs. Slip away from the couples and stroller-pushing families and seek out vendors such as Petals From the Past, which sells heirloom fruit, like pears, persimmons, apples and muscadines. The rural storefront Pie Lab sets up temporary shop here every week, and always sells out. (Believe it or not, Saw’s co-owner once worked for locally based Cooking Light magazine.) Or order a smoked chicken sandwich slathered with white sauce. The spicy mayonnaise-based condiment is the state’s contribution to national barbecue culture. Get it to go, and head next door to Avondale Brewery’s beer garden, where you can wash it down with a pint of Vanillaphant porter, named for Miss Fancy, a beer-swilling elephant who once lived at the Birmingham Zoo. The owner, Alabama native Frank Stitts, started his career at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, then worked in Provence before opening shop here in 1982. Today his influence radiates across the city, with former line chefs and waiters opening their own dining spots and food trucks. If it’s in season, you must order the tomato salad, a tower of thick beefsteak slices tossed with balsamic vinaigrette and layered with field peas, corn and okra, all topped with a slice of bacon.

In some New York neighborhoods, the housing stock is great, but turnover is so low, word of mouth is the best search engine.
