North Carolina Restaurant Named 2nd Best Fine Dining Spot Nationwide
Looking for the perfect fine dining experience? White tablecloths, fine china, famous chefs, and a meal you won’t ever forget? It’s closer than you think! The Trip Advisor Travelers’ Choice Award Best of The Best Restaurants were recently announced. And North Carolina was right at the top of the Fine Dining category. It’s a restaurant in a town I’ve talked about several times recently, and one of my favorite places to visit- Blowing Rock. Blowing Rock has some incredible eats but the one that almost topped this list was The Restaurant at Gideon Ridge.
The Restaurant At Gideon Ridge
The Restaurant at Gideon Ridge is a part of an inn by the same name. It’s known for its views overlooking the Blue Ridge Parkway. Guests are invited to “dine al fresco” on the terrace or in an intimate European-styled dining room. No matter which setting you choose you’ll have the spectacular long-range mountain views as your backdrop. The menu changes daily. This allows the Culinary Team the unique ability to only use the best ingredients available from local farms and small-batch purveyors. Ingredients are sourced directly from the Blue Ridge Mountains.
A sample menu includes dishes like Wagyu Beef Striploin, venison tenderloin, and NC mountain-caught redfish as entrees. Trip Advisor reviews have given the restaurant a perfect 5-star rating. Reviews say things like “Some of the best food we have ever eaten – ever!” Another said it was one of the finest meals he had had in North Carolina. The Restaurant at Gideon Ridge is open for dinner Tuesday – Saturday by reservation only.
TripAdvisor says that the Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best restaurants have “a high volume of above-and-beyond reviews” from users over a 12-month period. Fewer than 1% of Tripadvisor’s 8 million listings are awarded Best of the Best. You can read the full list and more about Gideon Ridge the North Carolina fine dining award winner here.
