Palate Up

There are plenty of date-night dinner places in the utterly walkable and historic West End. Or, keep heading west to savor the flavors of the Carolinas in the Village of West Greenville. Its celebrated eatery, The Anchorage, is headed by Chef Greg McPhee, who offers a field-to-fork experience that spans a stellar botanical cocktail program and an ever-changing, by-the-glass wine list. Share plates for a slow-coursed dinner with hand-harvested, seasonal ingredients.
