Incredible food; awesome service; great ambience in an old wine storehouse. We ended up in Troutville, Virginia for the night because we took a detour on the Blue Ridge Parkway. After finding a hotel for the night, we began making dinner plans. We found only fast food restaurants. And then, we found the Pomegranate online. The menu looked interesting and it was only 5 minutes from the hotel. We envisioned a romantic inn type restaurant, overlooking a fabulous view of the Blue Ridge. When we pulled into the parking lot of an old warehouse type building, we began to laugh. We are known for finding off beat restaurants. Once again we hit pay dirt. Diane Dixon has worked magic. We had salads, mine a grilled romaine with fried morel mushrooms with a hint of truffle oil. I had a shrimp Mediterranean pasta with a burst of individual favors from olives, feta cheese, capers, tomatoes and small pieces of andouille sausage. My husband's pasta was a gentle blend of blackened chicken in a blue cheese cream sauce. Our deserts were well-prepared down-home favorites. Our server knew the menu, was able to make well-educated recommendations and provided exceptional service. Go to Roanoke to eat at the Pomegranate.
