McNinch House Restaurant Restaurant Review: Ensconced since 1988 in a restored Victorian cottage, McNinch House serves multi-course meals with wine paired to each course and intricate attention to detail right down to the chilled salad fork. Choose from four levels: Bistro (four courses), Petit (six courses), Grand (seven courses) and the Chef’s Tasting Menu (ten courses). Dishes incorporate Southern influences, such as white cheddar grits accompanying roasted Maple Leaf Farms duck breast and duck confit, as well as locally sourced ingredients as in the prosciutto-wrapped Carolina Mountain trout served with smoked potato-arugula salad and roasted lemon beurre blanc. Service is paced to allow patrons to enjoy each course --- no hurries here. The restaurant offers full, although basic, bar service --- no funny names, goofy flavors or paper umbrellas. For a special treat, make advance reservations for the Chef’s Table.
