This past weekend Steve and I headed down to Florence, Alabama to check out their restaurant week offerings. We were invited by Florence Main Street to take in the sights, see the town and eat some food. The list of participating restaurants were hard to chose from and there are a lot of good options in this quaint small town. If you're considering going, restaurant week in Florence runs until May 17th.
When we were told that Atlanta bloggers and all-around nice people Grant and Marie from Marie Let's Eat were going to be in Florence as well, we knew we wanted to dine with them. City Hardware was high on both our lists, so that made our choice easy. City Hardware is located in the heart of downtown Florence, right on the main drag of Court Street. No need to worry about downtown parking though; there are plenty of spots nearby. There was a big line outside for City Hardware and next door neighbor Ricatoni's, but we were smart and made a reservation.
French 75 and Steve got an Old Fashioned. The French 75 was refreshing for a hot day, but a tad bit too sweet for me overall. Steve found his drink quite good, if not slightly bitter on the back end. We both agreed that too much ice was used in each drink, diluting the flavor very quickly.
**While I was invited to review this restaurant for Florence Main Street, we paid for half of the meal ourselves and the opinions are 100% my own.**
