Winston-Salem / Salem College Area--Nice but Not Stuffy for Semi-Formal

Guilty Gourmand Nov 26, 2013 09:05 AM

Where would folks recommend that a young couple dine before a semi-formal at Salem College. Looking for great food in a dressy but not stuffy environment relatively close to the college. Thanks.

      4th Street is very casual.

        Eh, I think for a young couple (college age? likely) it fits into that "dressy but not stuffy" window

        I think Spring house, Meridian or even Mozelle's would be better choices for a meal prior to a semi formal. Mozelle's would be the most casual of the three.

          Mozelle's or Willow's Bistro are both excellent and not at all "stuffy."

            Thanks very much for all of these suggestions. I'm not from W-S and am well beyond college-age so was hard pressed to offer suggestions. Thanks again.
