AAA Inspector Notes
The renowned chef's imaginative Southern cuisine puts this casual café on the must-dine list for many Chapel Hill visitors. Local farms and purveyors supply much of the bounty for the seasonal menu. Shrimp and grits is a perennial favorite, and although the entrées change frequently, catfish, trout, pork, barbecue, steak, chicken and some vegetarian fare make regular appearances. The bamboo-lined patio is covered and heated, making it usable in all but the chilliest weather. The comfortable dining room features new works from a local artist every month.
