By the time visitors place their orders at Julianna's Schoolhouse, they've worked up a fine appetite driving through miles of fresh air to get to the tucked-away bistro. Built before the Civil War, the pink clapboard building is still nestled in a quiet, rural region untouched by the hustle, bustle, and liquefied astronaut food of contemporary life. Inside, however, chefs concoct bistro dishes with a modern twist.
Their eclectic menu spotlights fresh produce, seafood, and herbs and high-quality cuts of steak and chicken, all transformed through classic French-, Italian-, Latin American?, and southern-style preparations. When they're not busy forging homemade chorizo and flatbread, chefs turn their DIY ethic toward desserts, such as a rotating selection of freshly churned ice cream.
