Looking for someplace for a dinner of maybe 10 in Pinehurst area. Group includes some semi-foodies, so looking for a good wine list and somewhere we can linger. Expensive is okay.
I usually don't venture for this type of food while in Pinehurst, usually sticking to Dugan's Pub. We usually stay at the Pinecrest Inn, which has a great deal which includes breakfast AND dinner. The dinner is pretty good, even for some semi-foodies. And it's a fun atmosphere, with a porch for drinks.
But my first instinct for more upscale would be to suggest the Resort, but other than that I'm not sure.
Elliot's on Linden, best wine list in the area
Italian Table, 7 Lakes
Resort is pricey, great breakfast but better options elsewhere for dinner.
