The Hungry Owl
Chef Tony Nicholas is no stranger to celebrity. He honed his craft under Emeril Lagasse, and his restaurant briefly basked in the national spotlight when it was featured on the Travel Channel's hit series Man vs. Food Nation. But even though he flirts with fame, he's still a Mobile native at heart. The Hungry Owl's menu reflects this love for his homeland by showcasing a blend of Southern and creole classics. He stuffs the massive Tony burger with local Conecuh sausage, tops cheesy grits with shrimp from the Alabama Gulf, and infuses banana pudding with a regional favorite: MoonPies.
Every other aspect of The Hungry Owl is a celebration of local culture, as well. The spacious outdoor patio hosts performances by local bands, the taps flow with local beers, and the flatscreen TVs broadcast local sports. As if that isn't a big enough feast for the sense, there's the not-so-subtle homage to the restaurant's namesake: owls. They're everywhere—in the form of velvet paintings, abstract art, tchotchkes, and sculptures. In fact, there are so many owls that if they all decided to rotate their heads at the same time, the Earth would shift off its axis, probably.
