Lines snake out the door for a spot at the butcher paper-covered tables at chef-owner John Stehling's locavore eatery. Guests come for the Southern classics with a mountain spin in dishes like pan-fried trout with green tomato–and-blackberry relish, black-eyed–pea cakes prepared with basmati rice, and shrimp and grits.
