Wow! Great new restaurant from Brandon Sharp that can be whatever type of restaurant you need it to be: a bar, a lounge, neighborhood restaurant or upscale dining experience. Great craft cocktails, wonderful wine and beer list and a stunning bar. Sleek dining room and there must be some soundproofing since it's not nearly as loud as many of the restaurants in the Triangle which is a big flaw that Greg Cox regularly ignores. Food is eclectic with many small plates and some interesting mains. The execution of the food is spectacular and the flavors and textures are bold. Service is attentive without being overbearing and is excellent. Parking is easy in the parking deck. Our new favorite since the unfortunate closing of The Lakewood.

We recently enjoyed a delicious, reasonably priced meal of delicate Red Snapper. The fish was excellently presented as well as prepared. Tender baby beet salad and hummus were the perfect starters and the warm fruit crisp covered with a sweet cream sauce could not have been better. We are looking forward to our return for an alfresco feast in their lovely outdoor patio. Awesome food, reasonable prices, friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere - doesn’t get any better than that.

Chef and team bravo! Your creative flavors and textures were a journey of excitement. Kudos to Mitchell for reading a table and providing a night of service to remember.

Although I was initially hesitant about the lack of reviews, I was extremely pleased and impressed at how incredible the food was. Everything was on point. I would highly recommend trying this place out as it is probably the best food in the area. I am sure that over the next few months it will become very difficult to get a reservation. I will absolutely be coming back soon. Sommelier was very helpful with pairing and the waiter was helpful, nice, and very attentive. One of the best things is that the restaurant is rather small so they can actually give you the attention you need and food is prepared quickly even for a party of 6. There is an outdoor seating area that is nice and enclosed and there is a lounge for drinks and bar snacks prior to seating. Worth coming for just a drink.

An excellent start for this most welcome addition to E54. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and with the obvious creativity of a Michelin star chef. The staff was friendly and efficient with the desire to make sure your time there was fully enjoyed. We had a wonderful time, and we look forward to visiting again soon!

This place is amazing! The food is truly something special, and definitely worth a visit. It's a beautiful combination of fine dining while somehow twisting in elements of southern cooking that make it delicious, different, and comforting. The atmosphere has the same warm glow of gentle sophistication while also a kind welcoming staff. While I was there every server held the door for me, smiled and asked me how things were going. It was a perfect night. I would highly recommend, especially for a special date.

Perhaps the finest meal we've had in Chapel Hill... and for that matter, the Triangle. This was our second visit and it did not disappoint. It's hard to pick a favorite dish, but the cold corn soup with blue crab was to die for. General Tso's fried cauliflower and the pastrami encrusted yellow fin tuna were simply outstanding. We're lucky to have a restaurant of this caliber in Chapel Hill.

Everything we had was delicious....we shared our plates to taste a variety of bar snacks and first courses.
Atmosphere was very pleasant and servers were efficient, friendly and knowledgeable.
Only complaint was the price of a very small amount of an ordinary California wine.
But overall a welcome addition to the area.

Absolutely amazing food and drinks. The menu is fresh and imaginative, the drinks are on point, the staff is friendly, and the decor and ambiance is comfortable. I had the best tuna I've had in a long time, and the fresh peaches for desert were worth the trip. Do yourself a favor and eat here!

I loved the fresh ingredients and unique flavors! The peaches with the pork shoulder and the lavender parfait were so delicious. A really great experience, and I'll definitely be back.
