There aren’t many places to eat that are more cultured than Café M in the world, let alone Alabama. Set within the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Café M offers fresh European and Middle Eastern dishes that are set to delight any audience. Since 2004, the sole caterer of Café M has been Jenny Weller, whose team diligently prepares food across a range of menus. Several times a month, the cafe puts on a special lunch where food courses are paired with wine for just $15 per person. After eating, diners have the chance to walk off the meal by taking in some of the beautiful art that fills the rest of the museum.
A family-owned and operated restaurant, Martin’s is one of the oldest in Montgomery, having opened in the 1930s. The menu changes daily and is inspired by the classic home cooking that the owners themselves grew up with. Each day they cook whatever they feel like and serve it to a hungry crowd of happy diners. Specialties include meatloaf, fried catfish, and salmon croquettes. The restaurant is especially family-friendly, with a relaxed atmosphere and friendly vibe. Martin’s even picked up two awards in 2012, including the readers’ choice from the Montgomery advertiser.
With the title of the River Regions’ oldest white tablecloth restaurant, The City Grill is locally owned and operated with a wine list that restaurants in Paris would be jealous of. A fine-dining establishment, The City Grill asks that guests come dressed in business casual attire, although the staff themselves are far from stuffy. The restaurant’s signature dish is a starter called Tuna Napoleon, consisting of diced sushi grade tuna with an avocado and miso vinaigrette. More expensive than other restaurants in the area, The City Grill more than makes up for this with an incomparable attention to detail to both food and service.
