McNinch House Restaurant Restaurant Review

: In 1978, original chef and owner Ellen Davis purchased the McNinch House, and over the next decade restored the Victorian home. Executive chef William Parham serves multi-course meals with careful attention to detail right down to the chilled salad fork. There are four levels from which to choose, all at different price points: Bistro (four courses), Petit (six courses), Grand (seven courses) and the Chef’s Tasting Menu (ten courses, requiring the participation of the entire table). Pre-priced wine pairings have been constructed to accompany each dish in the experience, and the wine list has notable depth and breadth. Dishes incorporate Southern influences, such as North Carolina red grouper or Georgia quail, and many feature locally produced raw materials such as grass-fed beef and vegetables. An intermezzo refreshes the palate between two of the courses. Service is paced to allow patrons to enjoy each course --- no hurries here. The Tuesday-Thursday special is a four-course dinner for two with wine pairings for $150 per person including tax and gratuity.
