What You'll Get
Going out to dinner at an upscale restaurant is the best way to celebrate a graduation, anniversary, or baby's first mixed metaphor. Hang your hat on a red-letter day with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale Southern-inspired fare and drinks at New South Diner, located off Robinhood Road in Winston-Salem. This Groupon’s value increases to $60 should you choose to redeem it on a Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.
New South Diner has compiled a hospitable menu of classic Southern cuisine with contemporary twists. Start a romantic date on the right foot by carving your date’s initials into a selection of cured meats, sausages, and pimento cheese with the Carving Board ($8), or confidently compare your physique to that of the beefsteak-tomato salad ($6), which tosses together buttercrunch lettuce with blue cheese, smoky bacon, red onion, cucumber, and buttermilk bleu dressing. Fish fans can savor tastes of shrimp and grits ($17), which pairs the briny delicacies with pan-friend corn, ham crisps, and moppin’ sauce, and pork lovers can take advantage of the pig's natural tendency to overindulge with beer-braised pork, served with turnip greens, pintos, scallions, and chowchow, a Southern pickle relish ($16). Lunch and Brunch is also available.
Because whistles cannot be whetted on gravy alone, New South offers an impressive wine list. A range of global grape juice is available by the bottle, glass, or in a wine flight ($8), which lets imbibers swirl and sip 2 oz. servings of any three wines. Grape haters need not be left out of the fermented fun, because New South offers an array of domesticated craft beers, as well as a single imported choice from Belgium (Framboise Lambic, $6), to allow expatriate drinkers to remain neutral in their selection. Making reservations, like wearing chain mail while wrestling a bear, is strongly suggested.
