What You'll Get
Locally sourced cheese is always preferable to moon cheese, which was found to have dangerously high levels of Buzz Aldrin's brain waves. Enjoy a fresh, earthbound meal with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of seasonal fare at Oscar's at the Museum. The café is open for lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and reservations are recommended.
Oscar's treats locals to seasonal fare from a calm spot at the Birmingham Museum of Art. The restaurant's produce hails from nearby local vendors, including the Jones Valley Urban Farm, and emerges from the kitchen in various, artfully appetizing ways. Seasonal starters include warm butternut-and-leek gratin with dipping croutons ($6) and the Remington salad, a gathering of mixed greens, roasted beets, grilled red onions, and sliced beef tenderloin ($12). Sandwiches also beef up the menu, including grainy stars such as the smoked turkey reubenesque, which ties together turkey, fontina cheese, and creamy jalapeno slaw inside an unknotted tandem of freshly baked rye ($10.50).
Sunday morning brunches at Oscar's at the Museum allow early-rising armchair Rembrandts to satiate in style. Each brunch features live music by Get Rhythm Ensemble, a full palette of comfort food, and one complimentary cocktail for those 21 years of age and up ($24 adults, $14 kids). Children aged 6 and under can enjoy Sunday brunch free of charge, but they are not allowed to climb on nearby paintings unless they are at least 54 inches tall.
- I loved the open space, the bright green motif, and I really liked the menu choices. They've got big 'ol salads if that fits your fancy, smaller dishes and appetizers (hummus, pimiento cheese, chicken salad), and hearty sandwiches. – Amanda Storey, Food Revival
