i'm not sure why no one has responded ... perhaps there really is no one from b'ham on this board?! i lived in b'ham recently, but it was before i had my PA daughter. maybe if you gave a little more info like what part of the city you will be in and what kind of restaurants (are you particular, or are you really only looking for anything that is allergy friendly?) perhaps someone might respond. i could give you some suggestions, but you probably would have to contact them and find out just how allergy aware they are. sorry i can't give any firsthand info. good luck!

thank you, I also wonder why no one reply. We will be in Birmingham this July, for just a weekend to attend an art opening. I do not care what type of restaurant, as long as it's allergy friendly (peanut only) We have never been there, but know the address is "Third Ave" - so here it is, all the info I got, hopefully someone will respond, if not, we will just eat packaged food for the weekend I guess!

cfkjc2, I mentioned your post to a member from Alabama and I raised it to call her attention to the post in question.

Thank you for reposting.
I am so sorry to say that I don't know of any safe places to eat in Birmingham. We are about two hours from there but spent some time there while my granny was in the hospital. I had to take my daughters food with me everywhere. I am hoping to bring much needed awareness to Alabama. Hopefully one day I will be able to post several safe restuarants! Good luck with your trip and welcome to Alabama!!
Best Wishes

Hi! My husband is from Bham so we spend a lot of time there. My son was diagnosed w/ peanut & egg allergy a few months ago. Our first trip there since dealing with allergies was in April. We found it almost impossible to eat out. Most places I called or went to were clueless. Needless to say, we were very tired of McDonalds by the time we came home!! We will be back this summer. I have inlaws researching so maybe the next trip will be easier. I'll keep you posted with any info I find.

Welcome to the board katgirl. There is a member here from Alabama who has started a food allergy support group as awareness is sorely lacking in Alabama, from what I'm told.
