Greg Cox is reviewing The Fearrington House this Friday. Greg Cox will award it 5 stars. I need not even offer any odds this week, as it’s that good.
Edit, September 17, 2010: Wow, Greg Cox surprised me and gave Fearrington House only 4.5 stars. Now some of you might say, “What’s the big deal between 4.5 and 5 stars?” It’s a HUGE deal. And it all came down to the service he received on his second visit to the place. He had an overly friendly, but ultimately inattentive waiter. A place like Fearrington should not have an “off” night, particularly when a couple is celebrating a wedding anniversary, as Cox was. The service left Cox feeling cold, and he docked them a half star as a result. It’s unfortunate for the restaurant, as Chef Colin Bedford’s food is amazing (and confirmed in Cox’s review). I’m sure Jenny Fitch would not be happy one bit by this review, and I suspect there’s going to be some angst over in Pittsboro this morning.
