THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Nana's Restaurant Review:


Nana’s is an iconic restaurant in an area that boasts many of the best restaurants in the southeastern U.S. Owner-chef Scott Howell’s talent shines in such starters as risotto made with veal stock and butternut squash, truffled chicken liver pâté, and potato gnocchi in a leek cream with chanterelles. According to the season, main courses may include bacon-wrapped venison loin over creamy farro and wood-fire roasted vegetables finished in a cranberry-balsamic sauce; pan-seared halibut with roasted peppers, wilted kale and hen of the woods mushrooms; or cast-iron roasted duck breast over mascarpone spätzle with a carrot-foie gras sauce. Folks have been known to drive all the way from Virginia just for chef Howell's simply elegant crème brûlée served with pistachio shortbread or a fruit crisp of the season usually topped with butterscotch ice cream. Italian wines lead the list, which nonetheless goes on to offer a substantial range of global selections. The cheerful dining room boasts Italian chandeliers lighting brightly colored walls adorned with local artist Jane Filer’s exuberant paintings. Just one caveat: If you're hoping for quiet conversation, avoid the closely spaced banquettes along the wall.
