This is the best food we had while visiting Greensboro for market. The beet appetizer was amazing, the trout and succotash was unforgettable, and the service was divine. I wish I could bring this place home to NYC!

There is no bad choice. Everything artfully prepared and appropriately portioned. Even something as simple as the Cajun fries are just right.

The hubs and I went for date night recently and wished we'd gone sooner!! I am originally from Louisiana so am sometimes skeptical of Cajun attempts. But Chef Jody knows his stuff! I love the melting pot of culture here; Sure, Cajun, but also southern...More
