If you have ever wanted to dine at the Fearrington House but didn't think you could afford it, here's a good deal for you.
Through the end of September, the fine dining restaurant is offering a specially priced three-course dinner for $59 or a four-course dinner for $69. Just mention "Summertime" when reserving your table by calling 919-542-2121. To see the menu, go HERE.
The restaurant is also offering a vegetarian tasting menu for $95 per person. Wine pairings cost an additional $75. For pacing reasons, if someone at your table orders the vegetarian tasting menu, everyone at the table must order that menu or the chef's tasting menu, which costs $125. Those meals include an amuse bouche, four courses, a cheese course, a pre-dessert and a dessert. To see the menus, go HERE.
And save the date for Sept. 12 when The Granary, a more casual restaurant at Fearrington Village, will offer a dinner with bestselling author Frances Mayes and her husband, Ed. The couple recently published, "The Tuscan Sun Cookbook."
Dinner includes a copy of the cookbook, a reception and the following menu: potato ravioli with zucchini, speck and pecorino; osso bucco with garlic flan, green beans, black olives and gremolato; and for dessert, lemon gelato with panna cotta and wine cake.
No price has been set yet for the event.
