Deacon Tower Grille's menu loads up on local ingredients to give foodies freshly prepared takes on southern classics. Entrees such as North Carolina flounder drizzled with orange-basil butter ($26), shrimp and grits ($23), and Cajun catfish ($18) pay pescetarian homage to the region, while the pork chop incorporates south-of-the-border flavors with jalapeño-peach preserves ($20). Smaller plates such as pizzas ($8–$10), soups ($4–$6), and salads ($5–$6) gratify grazers and remedy midday belly growls. Post-repast, sweet teeth tear into desserts such as the banana pudding with Nilla wafers and italian meringue ($6) and the Triple-Chocolate Cameo with milk-chocolate mousse, chocolate ganache, and a white-chocolate ribbon ($6). Located on the fourth floor of Deacon Tower, the grill overlooks BB&T Field, creating the ideal dining ambience for professors, students, professors posing as students to get into parties, and students posing as professors to get free coffee from the faculty lounge.
The chefs at Phoenix Grille whip up sophisticated regional fare to be enjoyed with seventh-story views of Wake Forest's BB&T Field. They bathe local flounder in orange-basil butter and add the savory flavor of country ham to their shrimp and grits and scallop entrees. Their hearty Angus steaks sate refined appetites better than origami swan steaks, and decadent desserts such as house lemon pound cake sweetly seal the meal.
