For nearly five years, Odette owner Celeste Pillow and executive chef Josh Quick and their team have helped downtown Florence, Alabama flourish–one delicious dish at a time. The casual, upscale restaurant is one of a growing number of locally owned, small businesses drawing people back to this exciting town’s downtown.

Here are a few things you should know:
Odette serves elevated American fare in a comfortable, inviting setting (decades ago the space housed Kaye’s shoe store).
The food, Southern in nature with international influences, is made with locally and sustainably sourced ingredients.
Cocktails here range from traditional favorites like an old-fashioned to more modern concoctions (a watermelon mule), and sometimes things that are both (the “George & Tonic” gin-and-tonic slushy).
And Odette has one of the largest (if not the largest) bourbon collections in our state. Monday through Thursday, most of these bourbons are half price during happy hour.
