The interior decor is elegant, refined, and features a wall of wine.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony included complimentary appetizers of fresh, sustainable, locally grown fruits and veggies, local seafood, and . . . wild pig!

Judging from comments made by the owner, Ed Chiles, the emergence of wild pig on menus around the country ranks right up there with the Second Coming of Christ.

I can’t imagine ever getting that excited about pork.

Instead of sampling Stuffed Oysters, Salmon Tartare, and Wild Pig Sliders, we “pigged out” on Lobster Mac & Cheese while chatting with friends and a few local dignitaries.

We also enjoyed Shishito Peppers, Mini Caprese bites, Puffed Potato Balls, roasted red peppers, and fresh strawberries, blueberries, and . . . peaches!

Chiles relayed that peaches grown at King Farms are kin to those Adam and Eve enjoyed in the Garden of Eden . . . before they pissed off the Holy Host!

He might be right ~> they were decadent, delicious, delectable, divine!

Aah . . . that’s better!
