Chez Fonfon

2007 11th Avenue South

Located in the beautiful 5 Points South district on the Southside of Birmingham, when you step through the door of the legendary Chef Frank Stitt’s Chez Fonfon, you are instantly transported to your favorite bistro in France. The menu features French classics like croque madame, steak tartare, and escargots, and (thanks to Alabama’s crazy liquor laws) is one of the few places you can get a chilled glass of Lillet. On a nice day you can enjoy your fare outside and challenge fellow diners to a friendly game of boule.
