Cullman County's Chef Frank Stitt first set the standard for fine, Southern dining at his beloved Highlands Bar & Grill on Birmingham's Southside beginning in 1982. This French inspired Southern restaurant offers exquisite food and gracious service.

Another place close to his heart is Bottega, Stitt's authentic, Italian restaurant located on Highland Avenue. Opened in 1988, this elegant restaurant keeps its standards high while offering a casual and fun atmosphere. Stitt also owns a small French style bistro called Chez Fonfon, located right next door to Highlands Bar & Grill.

Frank Stitt was inducted into the James Beard Foundation's "Who's Who of Food and Beverage" in 2011. He's authored two books, been nominated for several awards and is the father of two grown children. His wife, Pardis, works alongside Frank managing all three of his restaurants.
