10 spots: Dining Ideas for November

by Richard James

Dreamland

There really isn’t anything like them. Dreamland ribs are the perfect fall food, fitting right in with the other obsession of the season, football and tailgating. Aside from the original Tuscaloosa location and Birmingham’s Southside outpost, you can find Dreamland now in Huntsville, Mobile, Montgomery, Northport and in Roswell and Peachtree Corners in metro Atlanta.

Mudtown

This comfortable neighborhood spot is deservedly famous for their burgers, but you should really try some of their great sandwiches. Example: the Jamaica Smokehouse Press with Sweet Tomato Aioli.

Cahaba Heights

Satterfields
Relaxing yet upscale, this is consistently one of Birmingham’s best restaurant experiences. Owner Becky Satterfield and executive chef Haller Magee have a great respect for local food and it shows.

Cahaba Heights

Bottega
Frank Stitt’s classic Italian tinged with a dash of Southern soul is still the place to be seen, and more importantly to enjoy great food from a master.

Brick & Tin Restaurant

The soups are great. The paninis sublime. The lunches sensational. And the commitment to locally sourced food is deeper than you might suspect for a small place. But they think big.

Shula’s

The legendary football coach has created a legendary steakhouse. Shula’s, located in the lobby of the Wynfrey Hotel, feels like an exclusive club with wood paneling and sports memorabilia in glass cases. But football aside, come for the great steaks.
