Storie Street Grille Blowing Rock Reviews
Let me tell you a Storie May 21, 2016
With only minor demerits for service, Storie Street Grille was fabulous. I was fortunate to be seated almost immediately, because business was bustling on a Saturday evening. My waitress was quite young and clearly inexperienced, stumped by several questions I asked on menu selections (the menu is not hugely expansive, but rich in creative, tempting selections). That said, she was poised and polite, never attempting a bluff and once chasing down a fellow server to get the answer. So my only caveat is they possibly rely on college recruits and fail to establish a long term team of solid serving recruits (I find a top notch wait staff is often the secret ingredient for a superb eatery).
The chefs, however, were clearly veterans. I started with the soup du jour and quiche of the day, a tremendous pairing that was scrumptious. Then my Horseradish Salmon arrived and it was pure heaven. Delightfully crusted with horseradish and dampened in soy beurre blanc, this was beyond delicious. Accompanied by whipped potatoes and asparagus, a tremendous feast. Storie Street features an open kitchen, and I always take it as a good sign when you are able to glimpse your food meisters dancing among the flames.
While my server was not totally conversant with their varied offerings, she tended all other concerns with a polished touch and I departed with both a satisfied belly and a happy soul. Recommended.
