Persimmons - New Bern

After stopping by for a relatively quick lunch, I felt this restaurant deserved it's own post. The dining room is bright and well appointed, with great water views. Their lunch menu was an interesting mix of sandwiches, burgers and salads. The dinner menu was more intricate and look very interesting, with lots of local and artisinal ingredients sprinkled throughout the descriptions (I will say I'm tired of name dropping on menus). Prices were reasonable considering the location and level of cooking, with lunch entrees between $9 and $12 and dinner between $17 and $30.

As far as the food go's, there is clearly talent in this kitchen. A bowl of onion soup had unbelievable depth of flavor. Beef brisket was cooked perfectly on a sandwich, tender yet moist. Their Asian slaw was an appealing mix of Napa cabbage, red cabbage and carrot. Plates were well presented on contemporary china and service was very good. I had some minor quibbles (yukon gold potatoes don't make crisp fries, way too much barbecue sauce on the brisket sandwich), but can't wait to get back to this restaurant for dinner.
