Review: Satterfield's Restaurant

Hidden away in Cahaba Heights behind the Summit, Satterfield's can hold its own against the best in Birmingham, if our visit is any indication. Owner Becky Satterfield, a talented pastry chef in her own right, has lined up the very talented Haller Magee as executive chef. According to their web site, Magee names among his major influences Thomas Keller (The French Laundry), author Michael Ruhlman (who appeared on two of our favorite episodes of Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations") and Charlie Trotter (who has likened cooking to an improvisational jazz session.) Having someone from outside the Frank Stitt sphere which influences so many local chefs is a delightful change, and Satterfield's is well worth seeking out. Read our review here.

Next time try the poached pear cake for dessert. It is a real piece of art that is delicious and not too sweet!
