    Highlands Bar and Grill, southside Birmingham

      1. Hot and Hot Fish Club on the Southside in Birmingham. It is run by a protege of Frank Stitt who is the chef at Highlands Bar and Grill. My husband and I found that hte food at Hot and Hot Fish Club was just as good as Highlands but that the atmosphere was more relaxed, younger crowd, a bit hipper. We found the atmosphere at Highlands to be a bit stuffy with a bit of the "old South" feeling which we do not appreciate.

            Where is Prarie Fire Grill? What kind of cuisine do they serve?

          2. I am an AL native; but a current Atlanta resident. Ocean is one of my favorites for seafood. If you are into sushi, this is some of the freshest in town.
