It’s officially the last week of Summer. As we say farewell, take a moment to enjoy the last bites of the season and welcome some NEW features showcasing the early bounty of the season to come.

Begin your meal with our NC Big Eye Tuna Carpaccio. Thinly sliced raw tuna garnished with Crispy Oyster Mushrooms, Pickled Shishito Peppers, Sweet Corn, Cherry Tomatoes, Sriracha Aioli and Microgreens.

We love being able to get seasonal, local vegetables from our NC farmers. As summer slips away and the weather cools down, this week will be your last chance to enjoy our Fried NC Okra. The perfect side to complement any of your favorite menu items.

Tomorrow, fresh off the boats from our friends at Locals Seafood, we will have NC Triggerfish. Chef Tom will be grilling this hearty fish and serving it over a Potato and Leek Hash and finishing with a Pecan Romesco Sauce. You may also want to savor our New Zealand Rack of Lamb or a Broiled Maine Lobster Tail as an entree. You can also add a Lobstertail to your favorite steak to make it a Surf & Turf.

This week’s dessert will be your NEW favorite! Homemade Fig Newtons served with Homemade Brown Butter-Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.We also are offering Vinnie’s version of Cherry Garcia Ice Cream, with homemade Cherry Ice Cream, Cherries and Dark Chocolate Chunks. Yum!
