Long Point Grill
In this inconspicuous restaurant tucked down Long Point Road, Southern is done right. Their twist on mac n’ cheese? Smoked Gouda and penne. Or try the buttermilk fried chicken with whipped potatoes, collard greens, and a green tomato marmalade. With half-price bottles of wine Monday through Wednesday (5-8 p.m.), fresh desserts from Pitt Street’s Village Bakery, and an affable staff, it’s easy to get lost in a slow evening at the LPG. And for those with a need for speed, the restaurant offers lunch and dinner to go.
