During our second visit we had some more amazing food. I still stand by my feelings that this is one of the best restaurants in the Triad. However:
Please be aware if you order a premium drink you may be charged $20 per drink. Our table ordered 3 Bourbons with Knob Creek. This is expensive bourbon at around $40 per bottle. We were charged $20 per drink. I understand a markup, but this is beyond reason and I think everyone needs to be aware of this.
I think I have a new favorite. Spring House Restaurant had the most creative menu I have seen yet in the Triad. Strong Asian, Caribbean, Classical French and Southern all thrown in to create some fantastic dishes. I had a hard time to decide what to order. You need to visit Spring House's website and look at what is on their menu. http://springhousenc.com/menus/dinner/ If you like creative food, you will love Spring House's Menu!
Spring House Restaurant is located on Mansion row between 4th and 5th St in Winston-Salem. Of course in a historic Mansion. The interior has lots of history and it is worthwhile to take a peek upstairs as you can learn a bit about the history of this building. Being in an old mansion, each room will have its own flavor. We were seated in the sunroom which had Raton chairs which did not represent this fine restaurant well. This is definitely an upscale restaurant with fantastic service and food in a very classical yet modern environment. The staff are all extremely professional, yet they are in jeans. I like this comfortable without being stuffy.
We were seated in the sunroom which was not my favorite due to the Raton chairs..... The other rooms were much more appropriate for the class of restaurant that the Spring House is.
I started off with the General Tso's Sweet Breads. Spring House Restaurant is off the chart on creativity with this dish. Classic dish made in Chinese style of General Tso. The sweetbreads were lightly and perfectly fried served over a toastini with General Tso's sauce. Spring Houses General Tso's sauce is much better than that which is served in any Chinese Restaurant in the area. Perfect dish. Wow, Spring House has a winner with this dish.
