we come every 2-mos to Bham for my wife's check-up @UAB kidney clinic. check-up is on Monday a.m.-> so we usually arrive the day before on Sundays, but have been unable to dine @Highlands as restaurant is closed Sunday. this trip-> we came 1-day early on Saturday just to go for dinner @Highlands. we did not have reservations & when we called 4pm maitre'D informed us earliest available would be 9:30. my wife had read about Highlands in Cooking Light mag & after reading rave Trip Advisor reviews we were not disappointed. The grits are best we have ever had, also uniquelyd prepared & presented. other appetizers we enjoyed: split pea soup & grilled cauliflower/brussel sprout salad. grouper entre was succulent, prepared exactly right. my wife agreed Highlands may indeed be among the best restaurants in America, especially when her creme brule arrived w/ lighted candle (did I mention it was her birthday?)
