    Southern cooking with a twist. I loved this hidden gem. Get there early because there will be a crowd.

    It's hard to explain how awesome this place is. It's as if you are experiencing the entire breadth of North Carolina cuisine in one menu. You can't go wrong with any item.

    Vegetables and herbs are provided by the owners' own 10-acre farm. A local bakery supplies the bread, and nearby breweries deliver their best beers, including Pisgah's Organic Pale Ale. Read more

    After being told of a 45 minute wait, we waited an hour and a half to be seated by the door that is constantly propped open. Not worth the wait.
