We were in Morganton for the Ridge to Bridge Marathon and heard this was one of the best restaurants in town. No doubt about it, it was awesome. We started with the special salad of the night which was local lettuce with pears, bleu cheese and candied pecans ... a huge serving and so good!
For entrees we had the crispy duck special, salmon over pumpkin risotto, the pork chop and the NY strip. Everyone cleaned their plates except for me because I had the NY strip and it was HUGE! We loved the food. Every bite was so flavorful.
To top it off, our server was awesome. We told her we were in town for the marathon and after seeing that we'd cleaned our plates she asked if anyone would like more carbs? "We have more in the back!" It was great! In fact it was so great, we wanted to come back on Saturday after the marathon for one last meal but they were closed :(
Thank you, Root & Vine ... you guys rock!
