Cotton Row, Huntsville, AL

Summer break…such a great time to explore. For many years my husband ran a race in Huntsville, AL. His preferred pre-run meal is always pizza, however, there was a restaurant that always caught my eye – even before we fell in love with wine and great wine lists. Since we were never able to go on the race weekends, I made the two hour trip this week and am sure to return soon!

Not only does Cotton Row have incredible food and great options for pescatarians, they are also known as having one of the best wine lists in Alabama. Their menu changes seasonally and varies from lunch, to brunch, to dinner. While the lunch and brunch menus are not large, there are plenty of options. And they truly do have an incredible wine list!
