Lunch at Fratello’s

In the past few weeks, I’ve been asked numerous times whether or not I’ve enjoyed a meal at our newest local Italian restaurant Fratello’s in Southern Pines.

Date night at restaurant 195

It has been a while since the last date night, but the wait was well worth it.   Recently, Wes took me on a date night out in the Sandhills, and our first stop was for some fine American Fusion food from restaurant 195. The meal hailed as one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten in Moore […]
