The New South On A Plate

Posted: Updated:
A new restaurant in Uptown is trying to modernize what people think about when they think about Southern cuisine.

The Asbury is located in the Dunhill Hotel, and it's subtitle is Southern + Modern.

Our restaurant expert Sarah Crosland recently visited The Asbury and chatted with Executive Chef Chris Coleman.

One of the first things you notice when you walk in is the modern art hanging on the walls.

"We are working in conjunction with the McColl Center, which is just up the street from us," Coleman said. "We will feature an artist for six months and then change the artwork. We're basically a satellite gallery for the McColl."

The modern theme extends from the artwork to the cuisine at the restaurant.

"We want to show Southern cuisine as it is evolving right now," Coleman said. "Our tag line is 'Honor the past, celebrate the season, and look forward.' "

An example of the modern take on Southern cuisine that Crosland tried was a pan grilled Guinea hen on top of collard greens with a savory brioche and shiitake mushrooms.

The Asbury is located in the Dunhill Hotel at 235 North Tryon.
