Cannot begin to describe the quality and presentation of the four course dinner. Each course was magnificent both visually and in terms of taste. I found the $89 price tag for four courses to be reasonable given the quality and experience of the evening. Plus they bring you four extra courses for "free"--appetizer, mid dinner, pre-desert and post desert plus a goodie bag to bring home! Amazing.
It is hard to list every dish we tried and loved but some standouts for me were:
First Course--Kombu Cured Escolare with Seaweed Salad
Second Course--Corn and Hazelnut Bread Pudding, Seared Foie Gras and NC Mountain Trout
Main Course-Cornish Hen and Seared Beef Tenderloin
Dessert--Hot Chocolate Souffle
The added four courses that they brought us free of charge were equally superb esp the pre-dessert raspberry dish and the feta cheese appetizer (don't know precise names)
Don't be intimidated if you are not a foodie--the servers describe everything and will make recommendations. Somehow this place manages to be elegant without being the least bit pretentious. We cannot wait to come back!
