Tasty Tuesday-A Reblog in honor of MEG’s favorite restaurant. Not only did Highlands Bar and Grill (Birmingham, AL) win the James Beard 2018 Best Restaurant in America, this past week, Highlands Bar and Grill made Food & Wine’s 40 most important restaurants in 40 years. Also congrats to the Pasty Chef Dolester Miles for her 2018 James Beard Award. Just WOW- Other related Blogs Bottega are Chez Fon Fon links above under 100 Dishes To Eat In Alabama Before You Die.

Tasty Tuesday-Baked Grits ar Highlands Bar and Grill in Birmingham.  This is my #59 dish and/or 42 on the countdown.

As a transplant to Alabama, I knew little of Highlands Bar and Grill and famous Chef Frank Stitt. My expectations were humble; I just knew that I was going to be eating some grits. In this case, ignorance was definitely bliss.

If you follow my Alabama quest, you may remember that I do not like to read about the restaurants before I chow down.   Before I begin to tell you about how I kissed grits, I must tell you that I was blown away by  “finding”  this restaurant in Birmingham, Alabama. In an effort to keep this tidbit short, let me put it to you this way. In 2016, this restaurant was nominated for James Beards Awards. Not in one category, but in two; Outstanding Restaurant and Outstanding Pastry Chef.
