GREENSBORO, NC – ‘Cille and ‘Scoe, located at 312 S Elm St, Greensboro, NC 27401, is one of the best restaurants in Greensboro. Everything was locally sourced and handmade, even the pasta is made in house. I absolutely loved the chef inspired cuisine, the service, and the space.
We started out with their Ruben Revisited sandwich, reminiscent of a Jewish Deli I frequented while in New York. The sandwich was delicious! The tangy and sweet Swedish rye bread complemented every single component, including the well-seasoned thickly sliced corned beef they smoked IN HOUSE! I especially respected the fact that it was cured and cooked with a blend of their own seasonings and spices that yielded tender, flavorful, and still slightly warm meat from the smoker (which takes it to another level!). The Swiss cheese and an in-house made, beautifully sweet Russian dressing interacted heavily with the pickled cabbage for a field trip of flavor! Using pickled cabbage (instead of the classic Sauerkraut) gave a new twist on this super ubiquitous sandwich, which I honestly enjoyed a little more than the classic, don’t kill me. This sandwich was a five out of five!
Next up was their signature pasta, coined THAT PASTA! Listen, this was the best pasta we had in the entire trip. For starters, it was incredibly fresh, and each bite was a star in and of itself. The Blackened chicken was flavorful and aromatic. The chef’s creation of a wine pan sauce sealed the deal for this pasta, earning a solid five out of five!
Our final selection was the Shrimp and Grit cake. Just imagine white wine, cream, butter, freshly caught shrimp, and locally sourced grits from a mill around the corner and a badass chef whipping it together for you like a boss.
The best way to describe the cuisine, how I felt eating it and how we were treated is to say I felt like Rick Ross during this amazing dining experience. This place gets an ultra-rating of 10 out of 5 from me. Call them at (336) 522-6592 or visit their website, cilleandscoe.com.
