I went to the restaurant with four people so I was able to sample several of their current dishes. We started with warm brie and crackers which were served with honey and apples. All the ingredients were local and the cheese was especially delicious. We also ordered a mixed green salad which I didn’t try but was told was exceptional.
For our entrees, I ordered their warm root vegetable salad which consisted of apples, turnips and a flash-fried oyster in a warm vinegar sauce. Other entrees ordered at the table were their Harvest Basket which consisted of a sweet potato cake with hominy, tomatoes, collards and a poached egg and the Campfire Trout which was served over a bed of a corn bread puree with cherry tomatoes and local greens.
All in all, the food was amazing and the setting is really special. The restaurant is located within the Mint Museum of Craft and Design and looks out over not only the Levine arts campus but most of the uptown skyline. I would strongly suggest this restaurant for a special occasion or just to sample the amazing produce of the Charlotte region.
