Probably the best restaurant in Birmingham. Recently won the James Beard award. Their pastry chef also won. This restaurant rivals the best Europe has to offer. It is one of several that Frank Stitts has created.

Everything here is perfection. Don't skip dessert, even if you box it to take home. Order a special drink from the bartender Chris. Pure joy.
