EAT: Mozelle's Fresh Southern Bistro, Winston Salem, NC

A taste of the Deep South in Winston Salem, NC! Mozelle's Fresh Southern Bistro not only has great Southern food, but also a great atmosphere! Although the restaurant is small, its prime location, large windows, and outdoor seating make it a fun place to dine. Actor Owen Wilson was even spotted dining at Mozelle's when he was in town shooting a movie last summer. 

Mozelle's even caters to food allergies with its gluten free and vegetarian items listed right on the menu. My dinner companion and I choose to eat outside since it was a beautiful summer evening. Mozelle's is one of the few restaurants that keeps its outdoor seating year round. In the winter months, one can sit outside wrapped up in one of their cozy lime green blankets. 

We started the meal with the gluten free Scallops with Butternut Squash Purée, Snap Pea Risotto, and Chervil. Yum! The scallops had a nice pepper crust on top that made them a little spicy, but the risotto calmed the flame. 

For the main course, I decided on the gluten free Flat Iron Steak, paired with fingerling potato and caramelized onions, rainbow chard, quail egg, and chili garlic bbq sauce. The steak was prepared a little rarer than my usual medium, but was still quite tasty and was flavorful enough that it did not need the bbq sauce. The rainbow chard was quite spicy, with a nice nutty taste. 

My dinner companion choose the gluten free pork chop with the zucchini corn bread and red cabbage slaw. The pork chop was tasty and the slaw had a nice kick. Corn free me was unable to sample the zucchini corn bread, but my dinner companion said it was really yummy... some of the best corn bread he had tasted. 

Mozelle's Fresh Southern Bistro definitely knows Southern food! Its eclectic mix of menu items and fun atmosphere make it a fun place to dine with friends or a date. Check it out on Mondays for half priced bottles of wine, gluten free, of course!
