Restaurant expert Sarah Crosland recently visited the new spots to check it out.
"We always knew we were going to open up the Mayobird," said Mills. "Originally, I planned on sub-leasing the other side of the building, but I was going to be very particular about what went in there. Then I took a trip to Tanzania and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. When I got back, I decided, we are going to open up the other side with a dinner-only restaurant, and we were going to call it The Summit."
The Mayobird focuses in on lunch, with chicken salad being the main attraction. But, Mills also wanted to provide coffee and breakfast items for the people in the neighorhood who used to come to The Caribou.
The Summit is guided by Executive Chef Brent Martin, who is fulfilling Mills' desire to provide upscale Southern cuisine.
The Summit is located at 1531 East Blvd in Dilworth.
