High Cotton: Good Food and Family Friendly

We went out with friends for dinner on Friday night, and when asked where we would like to go, we had only two requirements- we needed to go early and someplace that is somewhat baby-friendly (these are pretty much standing requirements for us). Their recommendation was a spot they have been talking about for months- High Cotton in Dunwoody.

High Cotton is located in the Publix Shopping Center on Chamblee-Dunwoody Rd., and is quite the popular spot. They do not take reservations, but you can call at 5pm for some form of call-ahead seating. This is definitely recommended, as even at 6:30, the small bar area was packed with waiting patrons. I was happy to see several small children and at least 3 babies in the restaurant, all on their best behavior (they were seen, not heard).

The menu is fairly standard- pastas, chicken, steaks, tuna. I wouldn't say it was the most creative menu, but then again, its better to do simple dishes well, than creative ones poorly. I went with the a rare ahi tuna dish, that was sliced and served with ginger, soy sauce and wasabi. Lady Steakhead went with the Firecracker Pasta with assorted shellfish. Both were very good. While I shied away from the steaks, one of our friends ordered the filet, which was a more generous cut than I would have expected.

I was definitely impressed with High Cotton. It's a good. "comfort food" destination, comparing favorably to places like Food 101. Most dishes were priced in the $18-24 range, so it won't break the bank. But the big draw was how easy it was to take Baby Steakhead. Pizza and Tex-Mex get old after a while, so its good to know of other local options.

Steakhead Recommends: Yes
Price: $$
