OH MY GOODNESS - this is the most amazing food I have ever tasted. I found Z's because someone on the plane recommended it to me for the best soul food I could get in B'Ham. I was there for business for two days and ate there 5 times! I learned they recently expanded and it is simply charming with a cultural feeling but not off-putting to any one group. There is room to hang-out, room to have friends/family or to reserve space for a party. I had to take a moment and acknowledge the amazing food. I wept over the Vanilla Bean Pie and said a prayer for whomever made the Banana Pudding - best ever!!! I gained about 5 pounds I think but wish I could have gained a few more. - hahaha I asked the cook if he would like to run away with me back to California but he graciously declined. I can't recommend it enough - do yourself a favor and check out Z's.
We stumbled onto Zs when looking for the predecessor restaurant - and we were not disappointed! We had a lunch of salmon croquettes with our choice of sides: succulent cabbage, mashed potatoes, amazing maccaroni and cheese. We finished off with the house specialty: Vanilla Bean Pie - FABULOUS!
