One of three Birmingham spots belonging to well-known chef and restaurateur Frank Stitt, Bottega has a split personality of sorts. On one side is a white tablecloth, fine dining establishment known for its deliciously rich entrees and Parmesan soufflé appetizer; on the other side is a trendy, casual cafe complete with a communal table and a bar stacked with regulars. The restaurant is open at night only, while the café serves both lunch and dinner.
Signature Dish: Parmesan souffle
