Mike and I have been meaning to try the Owl for a while, but he's been wanting to wait until the switched over from their winter menu to their spring one. I couldn't describe the Owl better than the owners themselves, so I stole this from their description from The Owl's Facebook page:
Opened in early 2012 by husband and wife team Aaron and Justi Manter, along with Joey Fazio. It's the restaurant/bar we wish existed, so we didn't have to make it ourselves.
Modern progressive dining. A little science here, a little craziness there.
We look to the future for flavor and find inspiration in the unorthodox. Fiercely independent.
Take fine dining out of the hands of the wealthy.
Mike and I had dinner at the Owl tonight. He had the duck and I had the lamb (pictured below). We also had the cheese appetizer and some yummy cheesecake for dessert. I'm no food critic, so I can't wax eloquently about my meal. Basically, it was wonderful. And, it was beautifully presented. :)
If you live here in Greenville, I would *highly* recommend checking out the Owl!
