Look at those veggies! They were all grown at Mandolin's farm. Yes, little known fact Mandolin recently upped its focus on local ingredients by starting a gorgeous garden and farm.

If you're not familiar with Mandolin, it's the product of Raleigh native Sean Fowler (formerly of Fearrington House). It hits all the right notes with Southern-style food with just the right amount of flair.
