Fairview Restaurant at Washington Duke Inn and Country Club
I love this restaurant. There is something comforting about being surrounded by the beautiful Washington Duke golf course, sipping a glass of wine, and dining on an exquisite meal. I don’t get to do this often, but when I do, it is a night I remember.
Fearrington House Restaurant
Executive Chef Colin Bedford know his stuff. Sourcing foods locally and changing his menus to reflect what’s in season, dining at the Fearrington House is always a surprise, and a treat.
Dinner Menu for Wednesday, October 12, 2011
Herons at the Umstead Hotel
I had the great pleasure of sampling the new fall lunch menu at Herons last week. I ordered the beef tartare and salmon entrée, both exquisite. I also had a bite of my dining companion’s veal cheek appetizer and pork tenderloin entrée, equally good. I have no doubt Chef Scott Crawford will please anyone who crosses the threshold into the Herons dinning room.
I am always impressed with Andrea Reusing’s food at Lantern. My favorite place to sit is at the upstairs bar with a steaming plate of Salt and Pepper Shrimp staring up at me. That is the moment of revelation!

Lucky 32 Southern kitchen
My dear friend Jay Pierce, Executive Chef at Lucky 32’s two locations is by far one of the most enthusiastic chefs I know. Proud supporter of local farms, and just all around great guy, he brings southern cooking to a new level, yet leaves you with the feeling of sitting at Granny’s table.
