Head to Carolina Forest for fancy southern plates and a great glass of wine at Cypress Grille.
Why: Foodies love small plates, and Cypress Grille’s menu includes an entire section with shareable Southern dishes. You don’t need to commit to just one.
Order: Mix and share small plates like biscuits with spreads, steak and mashed potatoes in a martini glass, spicy barbecued shrimp, and scallops. Or, if you don’t feel like sharing, order an entree. Prime short rib, grouper over risotto, shrimp and grits, truffle burger… you won’t leave starving.
Vibe: A little bit hipster with large lantern lighting, servers in cool aprons, blue and white towels for napkins. You’ll feel equally comfortable wearing jeans with your favorite concert t-shirt or dressed up in a cute black dress.
Wine list: Order a Chandon split because sparkling is always a fine idea. You’ll also find Duckhorn Merlot, an easy bottle to split with friends that pairs well with comfort food.
