Clifton Inn Restaurant Review

: Try and conjure a more idyllic setting than a firefly-lit terrace imbued with Southern charm, its Blue Ridge location heightening your appetite. Add contemporary cuisine and you’ll find any attempt futile. Indulge in beef tartare with charred tomato aïoli, fennel seed, purslane, Swiss chard and carrots; seared scallops with peach, bacon vinaigrette and trumpet squash; or handmade cappelletti with jumbo lump crab, oven-dried tomato, corn and basil from a seasonal, local-minded menu that, like a progressive wine list, divides itself into Delicate, Light, Full Bodied and Robust, to convey the heartiness of the fare. Of course, the indoor environs are appealing, too, with a dining room at once classic and modern. Feeling adventurous? Opt for the chef’s counter where you’ll sup in the white-clad kitchen observing a crackerjack culinary team creating a multi-course meal just for you. Service is warm, knowledgeable and refined. There’s even a wine cellar, home to the bottles on the Inn’s wine list, for intimate, private parties. Could it get better? Yes. If all you have to do after dinner’s end (sticky toffee pudding with butter pecan ice cream and medjool dates, perhaps) is climb the stairs to one of the Inn’s tastefully appointed guest rooms.
