Homewood Gourmet (formerly Franklin's Homewood Gourmet) is a casual restaurant and catering company.

It was opened in July 1997 by chef Franklin Biggs at 1919 28th Avenue South in Homewood's Merchant's Walk shopping center. It has best known for its "Baby Blue Salad" and spiced pecans, and offers meals to go and cooking classes in addition to its daily menu.

Biggs decided to sell the restaurant in 2010 while he was undergoing treatment for oral cancer. The treatment resulted in the loss of his sense of taste. Chris and Laura Zapalowski, veterans of the Hot and Hot Fish Club, bought the restaurant and kept the same menu, later adding shrimp poboys and pimiento cheese.

In May 2023 the Zapalowskis relocated Homewood Gourmet to a 1,500 square-foot space at 2705 Mamie Foster Place (18th Place South).
