One of my favorite restaurant restrooms in Birmingham, Alabama is in one of my favorite restaurants — the Greek-inspired Fish Market on 22nd Street South. I’ve never been to Greece but I have both been to The Fish Market and seen “Mama Mia” multiple times so I imagine Greece to be full of beautiful people singing ABBA songs and eating fresh and wonderfully cooked seafood. And having gorgeous bathrooms like this one with copper sinks, blue mosaic-tiled walls and stone and pottery accents. It’s so calm and serene … and Greek. The Fish Market is usually crowded and always noisy and the line to order moves fast — a basic knowledge of the extensive menu and the day’s specials is essential. There’s no table service, so you have to fight your way to the bar for another beer or more Apalachicola oysters but if you want your seafood lovingly and authentically cooked, it’s worth it. And you can always head to the ladies’ room if you need some peace and quiet. Check out The Fish Market Web site at http://www.birminghammenus.com/thefishmarket/
I’ve never been to Alabama and I do not like fish, but I did see the word beer…so all is not lost yet! 🙂
Oh, you’ve got to come to Alabama! You would love it — and you don’t even have to eat fish while you’re here, I promise.
Thanks for telling me about this restaurant! I, who have also never been to Greece, also imagine every surface draped with ornamental cats. I saw a book somewhere, I think.

I read the menu and my mouth is watering. I’ve added it to my “Must Try” list.
