When you walk into the restaurant, you know you will find something to enjoy. The warm red and yellow colors on the walls and booths and the charming vases of fresh flowers on each table invite you to sit down and make yourselves comfortable--which is very easy to do. Today's visit was the first for my husband and me, and we look forward to many more. We chose Brunch Specials and both were excellent. I had the Crab Louie--a delicious combination of well-seasoned spinach, perfectly poached egg, delicately- seasoned and meaty crab cake and flavorful biscuit bottom all topped with a tangy citrusy cheese sauce garnished with chopped scallions. Joe's Catfish Étouffée was a harmonious blend of perfectly-seasoned catfish fillets along with a poached egg on cheesy grits topped with a rich and flavorful crawfish sauce. The only missing ingredient was perhaps some fruit (fresh pineapple, grapes and oranges are reliable winter choices) or even a tasty parsley--as garnishes for the plates as well as rounding out the entree. We shared the white chocolate bread pudding and it, too, was lovely--not too sweet and not too rich.
I don't want to omit the pork rinds starter that is served with drinks. Superbly crunchy and lightly seasoned with a cajun salt blend, they are a delicious and light accompaniment to any beverage.
Service is outstanding, Our waitress was knowledgeable and seemed to enjoy her work. Because we had to wait a little while for the dessert, she gave us a complimentary glass of beer --a very thoughtful gesture. P and P's selections of wines and beers(draft and bottles) is well-chosen and reasonably priced.The atmosphere is cheerful yet cozy. Even though the floor is not carpeted the noise level is low enough for easy conversation.
Pork and Pie is far enough away from Asheville, a well-known foodie destination, to not have to compete, but I predict that it will not be long before more will find their way over to Marshall as their first choice for a dining out adventure
