I had high hopes but this was unfortunately the most disappointing meal of the trip. The pickles were a solid start and it’s difficult to go wrong with pimento cheese (until the crackers were much too thin to support it). The mac & cheese unfortunately was just not good and the shrimp & grits entirely flavorless.

I will leave this one with a Toby Keith lyric.
“I love this bar.”
As I have said before, it is always good to take a break from chasing the newest and visit a classic. The building that houses Canlis is fabulous but I am a sucker for mid-century modern. Truly an awesome setting worth a visit alone. Service was perfect and every course quite quite good. We were even fortunate enough to enjoy a tour after dinner even though it was exceptionally late and we were the last guests to leave.
