The spate of human birthdays in November makes scientific sense: Count back nine months, and you’ll land on Valentine’s Day.
But what explains the prevalence of local restaurant November birthdays? Is it a reflection of owners frantically trying to open their doors before the holiday season? Or a desperate effort to qualify for the year’s best new restaurant accolades? Whatever the reason, eaters are the beneficiaries: High Cotton turns 14 tomorrow, and the restaurant’s celebrating by pouring free sparkling wine. Each dinner guest will receive a complimentary glass of Dibon Cava Brut.
High Cotton opens at 5:30 p.m.
