Carolina Crossroads Restaurant
With a Southern-tinged contemporary menu that garners ample praise, including a Forbes Four-Star award in 2012 and a AAA Four Diamond rating in 2012, Carolina Crossroads Restaurant wafts gourmet aromas throughout the surrounding structure of the historic Carolina Inn. Executive chef James Clark merges Mediterranean and Italian influences with indigenous Southern fare to fashion locally sourced ingredients into innovative dishes for breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner. Beneath grandiose curtains and shimmering chandeliers, the restaurant's bold blue floral-patterned chairs and banquettes flank white-linen-topped tables, which support succulent seafood, juicy cuts of steak, and the occasional miscreant elbow.
