I'm traveling from New Orleans to Birmingham to visit my parents for Christmas and was hoping someone could recommend a good place for dinner. My parents have only been in Birmingham for ~2 years now, but I believe they have frequented at least a few of the many restaurants. I'd like to take them out while I'm visiting, or, if unable to get a reservation, buy them a gift certificate for Xmas. What I'm looking for:
--upscale, with a good wine list
--unique and interesting food/decor/ambiance
My parents have lived in New Orleans for many years, so they certainly can appreciate a delicious and enjoyable dinner.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
