I did some online research before heading toward Brevard, N.C. during a recent family trip and noticed The Quarry Restaurant & Piano Bar on several websites. Food wasn’t on the top of my list during the brief visit to the busy mountain town, but we just happened to be hungry for a good lunch when we arrived. I had forgotten about the restaurant until I saw the sign while we were driving around deciding where to eat. The available parking across the street made it a no brainer for us to choose The Quarry.
As I walked into the dining area I suddenly mellowed and felt very relaxed. The atmosphere was very nice and inviting. This was a great location to settle for a while after a long drive.
The decor and murals by a local artist kept my eyes occupied as we made our way to a table. Fortunately there was the same amount of thought put into the menu and food preparation as with the restaurant.
Grilled Chicken Quesadilla
The lunch menu offered an attractive selection of soups, salads, sandwiches, wraps and a few additional items. Being a big fan of just about anything with chicken I chose to try the Grilled Chicken Quesadilla. The flavor was satisfying and the quantity was just enough. I really enjoyed the cheese blend and salsa with the chicken. All of the dishes were very well prepared and were enjoyed by all.
From their website:
“With enough swank to make Miles feel at home, The Quarry brings casual fine dining and elegance to Brevard. With a menu comprised of American cuisine, with a flare, from the kitchen of Executive Chef Craig Gosnell, the stage is set for you to enjoy the sound of local musicians massaging the keys of the baby grand piano. The wine list and after dinner drink menu speak for themselves, so for those of you who enjoy sipping on the rich flavor of a cognac, accompanied by the smooth sounds of live music, sit back and relax because The Quarry is the place to be.”
