Five Best Farm-to-Table Restaurants in Alabama

27 Feb 2014 Amber Bara

Farm-to-Table restaurants have become huge across the U.S in recent years, and in Alabama, it is not different. Here are five great farm-to-table restaurants to check out statewide. 

– Tuscaloosa

Established in 2003, Epiphany is Tuscaloosa’s fabulous farm-to-fork cornerstone.  The menu is broken up in unique ways: Dirt, Grain, Ocean, Meat, and Dessert.  Dishes are tapas sized so you can come in for an appetizer and a drink or order several and share among your table of friends. The culinary cuisines range from veggie-oriented dishes like Cauliflower Souffle to meat-focused Fried Georgia Quail.  Every menu item experienced exhibits earthy elegance.  http://www.epiphanyfarm2fork.com 

Highlands Bar and Grill – Birmingham

You are invited to enjoy a French-inspired Southern dinner, where exquisite food and gracious service combine to create one of America’s great restaurants. Highlands Bar and Grill is in great demand, so call ahead for reservations. The menu is an impressive display of delicately combined foods and on it you will find Beef Carpaccio, as well as Pan Seared Sweetbreads topped with Winter Black Truffles.  Bring your business colleagues or just come solo and sit at the bar. You will have a great time every time.  http://www.highlandsbarandgrill.com

Amsterdam Café – Auburn

This café, a favorite among college students, houses farm-to-table dishes. Meat focused, this menu would satisfy any carnivore’s appetite. The Amsterdam Burger hugs cured bacon and caramelized onions while bacon-roasted pepper lentils compliment the Grilled Salmon. These eats are great for any lunch or dinner outing.  www.amsterdamcafeauburn.com

Maestro 2300 – Auburn

Fresh. Local. Light. And may I add, fabulous! Maestro 2300 focuses on high-end food for a great price. Their menu offers gluten free and vegetarian entrees. Whether you order the Winter Salad with red and yellow beets adorned with Pomegranate Vinaigrette or the Braised Aspen Ridge Short Rib sprinkled with chestnuts, you will surely be delighted.

Noble South – Mobile

This is farm-to-table Deep South style! You can order grits and banana pudding or fried chicken hearts and pickled shrimp. Dishes can be tried tapas style and the menu changes weekly so there’s always an opportunity to try something new.  Oxtail, anyone?
