At Ember Grille, gourmet hungers are sated with innovative international fare served in an upscale atmosphere fused with down-home North Carolinian hospitality. Culinary gurus combine premium meats and fresh seafood to cultivate a menu of flame-cooked favorites such as the oven-fired exotic mushroom flatbread, doused in sherry dijon and rosemary goat cheese ($9), or the caprese flatbread, decked with roma tomato, mozzarella, and micro basil ($9). The glowing remnants of torched TV Guides are perfect for browning the Angus-packed ember burger ($11) or mushroom veggie burger, a fungi-friendly nosh topped with swiss cheese and herb mayonnaise ($10). The Carolina shrimp and grits fill beleaguered southern bellies to the brim ($19), while the herb-roasted chicken breast placates poultry peddlers with a clucker swathed in white beans, chicken apple sausage, and root vegetables ($19). Conclude your culinary quest with the eatery's swankified twist on a carnival favorite, the funnel cake with bourbon chocolate sauce ($6).
