LCJ's wife LL and baby M weren't in town because she is at a conference so it was just the two of us. I was a little concerned that it would be too pricey but we had a really great meal and thought it was a reasonable value for the quality. The format we were told was designed to be shared with mostly small plates with a few larger, main course sized offerings. Our waiter suggested that we order two small plates, one main course, and one side to share between the two of us. I've often found that these suggestions lead to too much food but his was not the case here. It was just the right amount for the two of us.
Our Small Plates
On the right - sauteed mushrooms on soft eggs & grits with truffle vinaigrette
On the left - shrimp and grits
Foreground left - cornbread
We loved each of these
On the right - a boneless beef short rib on blue cheese grits, creamed Brussels sprouts and red onion jam (yes that's right three of our dishes had grits in them...we actually weren't reading the details particularly closely)
On the left - a gratin of sweet potatoes. This was the only thing that we just thought was good.
Joe and I give Carriage House two thumbs up
