Like a successful business meeting, great meals satisfy everyone involved and rarely confuse participants enough to warrant a PowerPoint presentation. Toast mouthwatering mergers with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of American bistro fare at Pipers Cafe on West Southport Road.
Pipers Cafe's bustling kitchen staff crafts elegant, seasonal American bistro fare made from scratch. Commence taste tours with a succulent sextet of jumbo tiger shrimp lining a martini glass and served with homemade cocktail sauce ($9), or fluffy, muffin-shaped teacup bread with homemade honey cinnamon butter ($1.50), which also complements all entrees. Stuffed flounder, accented with white wine, asiago cheese, and tarragon, accompanies fried hush puppies and comes with a side of fresh vegetables ($23). Conquer the mouthwatering messiness of Will's barbequed beef ribs ($20), glazed in homemade molasses barbecue sauce and served with a complimentary finger bowl, hot towel, and optional hose-down.
At the end of the meal, sweet teeth sink into decadent double-chocolate sour-cream cake or a billowy slice of banana praline pie ($6 each). Pipers also supplies lunch crowds with sandwiches, salads, and lighter entrees.
Within a dining room whose streamlined design includes earth-toned walls, a dark-wooden bar, and high ceilings, the wait staff at Pipers Restaurant ferry Chef Will Osgood’s upscale variations on classic American cuisine. Fresh and local ingredients grace the from-scratch creations, which range from Szechuan-style stir-fries to premium hand-cut steaks. To spice things up, Chef Will deviates from his already-prolific lunch and dinner menus to organize dinner events such as wine pairings and celebrations of culinary traditions from around the world.
