"It's like being at a fancy dinner party, but someone else is doing all the work," said one guest who attended the Heirloom Tomato Jubilee Dinner. "It's a great feeling. We enjoyed sitting down with other guests we had not met before, and getting to know them."
"We're very excited to be partnering with local farmers and wine vendors to bring special dinners to our customers," said Chef Greg Lewis, owner of the Pittsboro Roadhouse. "We're building relationships for a strong community and future creative and cultural events."
