Chefs created New American cuisine after decades of mistakenly interpreting the melting pot metaphor, leaving customers sick of meals based around gooey cast-iron griddles. Keep up with tastier trends with today’s Groupon at Table 274. Choose between the following options:

- For $7, you get $15 worth of New American cuisine for lunch.
Led by Carolina–born-and-bred chefs Patrick Best and Eugene Fritzler, Table 274 delights diners with dishes that favor fresh, local ingredients whenever possible. Lunch and dinner menus both feature sumptuous starters such as the farro salad, showcasing pickled golden and red beets and frisée, dressed to impress in a lemon-thyme vinaigrette ($7–$8), as well as spring onion soup, which finds its ideal match in aged gruyere, despite public opinion that their marriage would never last ($5). For a midday entree, try the grilled veggie and provolone artisan sandwich, an array of grilled seasonal vegetables and sweet pepper aioli tucked between slices of french country loaf ($8). Later, dusk tempts diners with large plates, including pan-roasted sea scallops with fava-bean purée, fennel salad, bacon lardon, and citrus vinaigrette ($21); family sides, such as fresh collard greens ($6); and a smattering of small plates, which compensate for their stature with big flavors as demonstrated in plates of brick-oven-fired oysters with spinach crème and tomato jelly ($9).
Table 274's sleek, yet unpretentious style creates a uniquely welcoming environment where customers can relax at polished booths and tables. Check out the Facebook page to ogle mouthwatering photos of the sumptuous spread, and then head to Table 274 to surround yourself in New American cuisine, which is surrounded by a familial staff, which is surrounded by a friendly atmosphere, which is surrounded by walls.
At Table 274, talented chefs are dedicated to crafting wholesome lunch, brunch, and dinner menus. In order to support local agriculture, they work to forge a sizeable portion of their entree roster from locally acquired produce, which freshens their culinary cast more than Will Smith freshens a room when he films a sitcom in it. Their outdoor patio and spacious indoor dining area grant varied environs for sampling wood-fired pizzas topped with roasted vegetables, braised short ribs, or figs and prosciutto. To complement the diverse cuisine offerings cataloged on the menu, Table 274's mixologists shake and stir specialty cocktails with vodkas, citrus, and liqueurs, while curating a list of draft beers with selections from local breweries within the state.
