This is an unexpected jewel to find in the mountains. Franklin NC is a beautiful spot to spend some relaxing time,our daughter moved to the area over a year ago and our first visit to see her she took us to this fabulous restaurant---REL is in a strange spot, sort of in a gas station but really seperate and what a great surprise we had. The food and service is wonderful--so many choices all freshly cooked and presented like a 5 star establishment. The "Chef" is there to make sure all is well. After the meal try one of the many desserts. You will not be disappointed.
