Dining Alfresco


at Vino in English Village is a great new place to try. This upscale restaurant and wine bar is owned by veteran Birmingham restauranteur Al Rabiee.  I had the pleasure of chatting with him not long ago and taking some photographs. When I left he brought me a bag of his wife's DIVINE apple fritters. Try them!

Lately our weather has been so mild I'm sure they've had the fire pit blazing and patrons have enjoyed their lovely outside seating.

I think I would like this place a lot. And I love apple fritters! Nice shot, too.

Looks like they are setting up for special guests: Zombies! Party of four! It's haunting. A thought: try cropping it down from the upper left corner and cut the very bright tree. Just leave the table, the waiters and the foliage above them. How would that look?
