Just a couple of weeks before the stunning announcement that P’cheen was changing hands, we wound up there for a late dinner after a disappointing gala at Pinewood Studios. Our group of eight returned from Fayetteville in a Cooper Global minibus, destination unknown. It was a frigid evening and although there was a lavish buffet, there was no alcohol at the event, so LC and I thought some moonshine would warm us all up.
And it did. I ordered the Georgiaville Tea, a cocktail made with black tea infused moonshine, peach, and lemon. Although the restaurant was crowded on this particular Friday night, we got a table in less than ten minutes.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have my camera. Everyone says it takes shitty pictures, but I’m gonna have to disagree…the food photos for this post were taken with LC’s iphone 5. I’m not impressed. I used an old photo from my Canon for the restaurant shot.
LC and I chose a couple of items to share. Sadly, the duck leg confit was sold out, so we switched gears and ordered the coconut curried mussels and Brussels sprouts with applewood bacon. The mussels were great, but we didn’t realize that the Brussels sprouts were in a cream sauce (granted, it did say so on the menu), so they weren’t as healthy as we had hoped.
I was curious about the Korean dip described as sesame pork, cilantro, jalapeno, sambal, flatbread. I misunderstood and thought it was a dip, when in reality it was a sandwich. I cut it into bite-sized pieces and passed it around the table, to rave reviews. Still, I probably would have ordered the Thai grilled chicken wings instead had I known.
Our dinner companions tried a variety of dishes, from the Guinness battered fish and chips to a towering burger with everything. They also tried a couple of the moonshine cocktails like the 4th Ward Rickey. Unfortunately, they didn’t have many of the infused moonshine flavors listed on the menu. I was hoping for the vanilla, honey, or blackberry, but settled for a shot of apple pie for dessert.
Everyone loved the food and drinks. I hope the new owner maintains this restaurant’s cool neighborhood vibe and keeps the moonshine flowing!
