Spring House Restaurant, Kitchen & Bar

Spring House Restaurant, Kitchen & Bar is the perfect place to linger over a meal with a special someone. This eatery is located at 450 N Spring St. in downtown Winston-Salem, but it has far more to offer than a convenient location.

For the most decadent experience, opt for the 5-course chef’s table meal. Then, sit back and enjoy as Chef Grandinetti works his culinary magic.

The Katharine Brasserie and Bar

This refined restaurant is found in a heritage building at 401 N Main St. The Katharine Brasserie and Bar has a French cafe feel, with Art Deco design elements that enchant the eye.

When you dine at this sophisticated establishment, you’ll love the old-world vibes.

Fresh and enticing dishes, handcrafted cocktails, and caring service will make your date night memorable.
