Chef & the Farmer - R's graduation dinner

Go nowhere and turn left and thats how you find yourself at the Chef and the Farmer resturant in Kinston and thats exactly what R and I did to celebrate the eve of his college graduation. This is hands down the best resturant I've ever been to. I love that there are more resturants that are creating beautiful atmosphere and inspired food using local produce and meat. The farmer and the chef should be BFF! This resturant is meticulous to only stock great wine and local brews that can be found for sale at their wine shop. R and I bought a few things inluding some Aprihop IPA that is delicious! I took a few photos on my phone so we can remember our experience, especially since the menu is seasonal and changes every few weeks. Here is a sneak peak:
Cast Iron Fried Flatbread, lamb, goat cheese, mint, and tomato
Leaping Lizard Merlot, Napa Valley 2008
My selection: Carmelized spring onion risotto, shitake, asparagus, and leek ragout truffle / parmigianno
R's selection: Piedmontese Bone-In Ribeye, chimichurri, hakurei turnip, creamed greens
Sweet potato cheesecake, pecan praline
