One of the 100 Dishes to Eat in Alabama
Parmesan SouffleBottega is one of three Birmingham eateries belonging to well-known chef and restaurateur Frank Stitt. The restaurant has a split personality of sorts. On one side is a white tablecloth, fine-dining establishment known for its deliciously rich entrees and Parmesan soufflé appetizer (at dinner only). On the other side is a trendy, casual cafe complete with a communal table and a bar stacked with regulars. The restaurant is open at night only, while the cafe serves both lunch and dinner.
Although the menu at Bottega changes daily, the Parmesan soufflé is a regular offering in the dining room and makes a perfect appetizer to share. This creamy, decadent dish is served straight from the oven and features sweet, wild mushrooms and salty Galloni prosciutto. You'll hardly be able to wait for it to cool down before you take that first rich bite.
