Table 274, Please
|August 7, 2011||Posted by Ashley Marie under Food, Places to Eat|
American Cuisine with a Carolina influence. What does that mean? It means good ol’, down south fare. Nothing finicky, just American food with a flair of the deep south. Still confused? Let me speak in layman’s terms: seared pork belly, grilled okra, collard greens and fried green tomatoes. Most importantly, Table 274 thrives on the “farm to fork” trend, collaborating with farmers to support local agriculture. So this place not only has a down south flair, but it also provides an extraordinary dining experience by using the state’s freshest ingredients. What could be better?
Well, let me tell you. Table 274 during Charlotte Restaurant Week could be better. And that it was.
My handy-dandy sidekick was there to order everything that I didn’t, allowing us to try almost everything that their Restaurant Week menu offered. Three courses, plus a sweet amuse-bouche thanks to the clout that I attain with many chefs and restaurant managers around the city (oh yes, that was arrogance slipping through).
Grilled Chioga Beet Salad with Grilled Leeks, Baby Carrots and Split Creek Goat Cheese
Pork Belly and Scallop Duo with Carolina Corn Salad, Pepper Jam and Yukon Chips
Seared Scallop with Collards over Sweet Corn Risotto
Pan Seared Wreckfish with Roasted Tomato and Fennel Broth and Carolina Field Peas
Boursin and Gouda Crusted Pork Chop with North Carolina Grilled Peaches
“My Mama’s Peach Cobbler” with House Made Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
If the descriptions alone don’t make you hop in the car and drive to Table, the pictures will do the trick. Check the place out, and you will be ecstatic that you did. Ask for Corey–tell him Ashley sent you.
