I am just taking a short road trip this Tuesday . . . to The Tavern of St. Clair.
This is St Clair County's best kept secret.
Of course I might be biased ~ I know the Sous Chef.This is an unassuming restaurant on the outside . . . once you step inside, you will be amazed. They serve a fusion of Italian flavors, fresh fish, and amazing steaks. From freshly made risotto to hot and fresh panini ~ the dishes are made with precision and care. This fine dining resturant also has a hoppin' pub with jazz music on the weekends. If you don't want the fancy treatment and fine wines . . . step through to the pub for great sandwiches and enjoy their beautiful wooden bar.
They also happen to make the best cappuccino this side of the Alabama state line.
It is well worth the short drive down I-20 from Birmingham. If you are hanging at the lake this summer you really need to try it.
