Olde Pink House
Next door to the Planters Inn on Reynolds Square, the Olde Pink House restaurant derives its name from the pink-stained stucco covering the 18th-century Georgian brick mansion. Inside, the two-story restaurant has original sloping hardwood floors, numerous fireplaces, and mismatched antique furniture. Outdoor seating is available on both floors, and the adjacent Arches bar has curved doors that are left open when the weather is pleasant. The lengthy Southern menu lists updated versions of traditional fare, with favorites including the crisp flounder with apricot shallot sauce and the BLT salad with fried green tomatoes, sweet bacon, and buttermilk dressing.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
