As children practiced their spelling with chalk sticks and inkwells at the Daniel Webster School in the 1880s, they never imagined their notebooks might be replaced with plates of delicious foods. But more than a century later, the cupola-topped Romanesque Revival building—now known simply as Webster House—houses a restaurant that loads its tables with just such sumptuous new-American cuisine.
Constructed in 1885, Webster House was lovingly restored in 2002. In the second-floor restaurant, dining rooms are bedecked with antique furniture in the style of an English country home. On the floor below, the shop is brimming with gorgeous European antiques, contemporary clothing, jewelry and decorative accessories.
Though the digs are a throwback, Executive Chef Brandon Winn keeps his bill of fare decidedly modern. Procuring ingredients from a long list of local farms and vendors keeps his menu fresh. At brunch, diners might savor jumbo shrimp and Anson Mills grits with country ham from Burgers Smokehouse; dinner brings dishes like roasted magret duck breast served with fingerling potatoes, bacon and grilled onion hash greens, veloute, blueberry compote and balsamic pistachio jam.
