Winston's Grille-Raleigh, NC

Winston's Grill has been on my radar for quite some time.  My Christmas visit with my sister brought us together for a wonderful dinner at a very nice restaurant with a well recommended reputation.   The Christmas decorations were very festive.

Our server, Hannah, arrived promptly at the table with a smiling face and a festive Christmas spirit.   She took our drink orders and delivered home made bread to our table.  One of my favorites!!

Winston's Grille also has an open to the kitchen tasting bar.  
Looked like the perfect place to enjoy Happy Hour and enjoy 
some tasty appetizers.  

Hannah suggested the Chicken Asiago and I asked her for 
her Christmas Surprise for me.  She didn't let us down.  

The London Broil was perfectly prepared medium rare...and the 
mashed potatoes were velvet heaven.  Loved the Mixed Vegetable Medley
which obviously was prepared with fresh vegetables....not something from a purveyor.  
I was so disappointed that I lost the picture of Chicken Asiago....I had it somewhere but 
it vanished.  The plate was equally well prepared and beautiful to the eye.  

After our fabulous meal, it was time for coffee and desserts!  I requested decaf coffee and it was rich and robust. My sister chose the Peppermint Cheesecake and I chose the Bananas Foster Dessert.  The moment the Peppermint Cheesecake was set on the table, I could smell the delicious aroma.  Smooth and creamy and so very Holiday inspired.  My Bananas Foster was perfect...light flaky puff pastry and the home made ice cream was the perfect accompaniment.
