A family friendly restaurant in CH/LP area with games/arcade for kids. And beer for parents! Like the old Papa Joes- a '90s favorite. A perfect spot after a ball game.

I would like to see a seafood restaurant. Like the shrimp basket or capt d's.

I would love to see a Fresh Market in Vestavia. I live two minutes from Sprouts but I drive down the hill to Brookwood to shop at Fresh Market because I do not like Sprouts. The quality of food and the atmosphere is much better at Fresh Market. A Taziki's would be wonderful. They are always packed with customers. We do not have many choices in Vestavia for family, sit down meals other than Mexican restaurants. Not many places to meet up with friends for an evening. It is a shame we can't do better with the City Center as an entertainment district for people, especially young people to have a place to hang out after a movie or dinner, and listen to music, sit outside if weather permits. Homewood seems to do this well. A pizza place such as Davenport's which we have frequented for forty years, again a family, friends place to gather for an evening of dining and just visiting. Vestavia does many things well but this type of planning has always been lacking, at least in Vestavia Proper. Might be a good idea to get feedback from the twenty and thirty somethings who live in Vestavia to give them a voice. We have more than enough mattress stores, nail salons and drug stores. Most people want a village atmosphere even though we have a highway running through our city. We can still have a village atmosphere on either side of the highway in our lovely neighborhoods.

It would be great to recruit a local brewpub (or satellite), or a nice, local watering hole that's close to home. It's a shame to have to go downtown for a nice place to meet friends for a drink. Other than Bistro V, there is not much in old Vestavia.

I'd like to see more locally owned restaurants, such as meat and threes or a good Mexican place in the Cahaba Heights area.

We need an excellent hotel in "old" Vestavia, and we need to shut down the Red Roof Inn and Days Inn. It's so embarrassing telling visitors not to stay in the hotels so close to me, and then to explain that they are shoddy and rumored to be hotbeds for prostitution.

Honestly, if the city could do something about the owners of the outlet malls on 31... that would help. They make it next to impossible for anyone wanting to open a local store. Only chains can afford the prices they ask. I would love more local businesses like 18th street in homewood or like rocky ridge. I love rocky ridge! I still feel like the city center is such a wasted space. The potential there......

But I digress...
A shoe store, boutique stores, toy store.
I'm not a fan of the HUGE stores like academy. I know everyone wants one. But there are so many that are close enough. I mean 10 minutes isn't a long drive to Hoover. I don't want anymore chains

REI sporting Goods
Shake Shack

I would like to see 2 retail places. A beer/wine retail like Hop City and a VH sporting goods. I would hope VH would support a sporting goods in the same way Homewood and Mtn Brook do.
