The Pinewood Restaurant Review

: The Pinewood features class-act mixology, while wines and beers get short shrift. It's fun to watch the guys at the bar perform their shaking duties with such drama. We've enjoyed the house-made biscuits with crisp pork belly; cornmeal-dusted oysters also make a fine starter, as does a salad of roasted beets with blue cheese and almonds. Good drinks nibbles come in the form of "grits tots" or cheddar hush puppies to share. The burger ordered rare came closer to well done, but it was still tasty. Two desserts, beignets and pain perdu, seem more appropriate for breakfast (indeed, the pain perdu appears for brunch); the pecan tart is quite good --- complement it with a cup of Batdorf & Bronson French press coffee. Lunch brings a number of interesting options, such as a fried bologna sandwich. Wednesday is whiskey night with half-priced cocktails. From 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, small plates range from $6-$9 and a single-patty burger (no bacon) is just $5.
