Restaurant Review: Williamsburg's The Trellis

For Austin's birthday (it was April 30, so I'm posting a little late...), we splurged (both money wise and points) and went to the Trellis, a delicious restaurant right in the heart of Colonial Williamsburg.

We had a great meal!  It started with the best assortment of bread ever:  focaccia with olive oil, cornbread with honey butter, and pretzel bread with mustard.  Heaven!  Worth every point.

Our appetizer was Parmesan Gnocchi with Chicken Confit, Toasted Pine Nuts and Mushroom-Herb Reduction.

Austin's dinner was Pan-Seared Fresh Water Trout with Bourbon Cornbread, Crab and Crayfish Stuffing on a Bed of Wilted Arugula.

Mine was a Pork Trio:  Seared Pork Tenderloin, Braised Pork Belly, Pork Cracklin-Mashed Potatoes, Redeye Gravy and Collards Greens.

Austin was a happy birthday boy :)
Moral of the story:  If you ever find yourself in Williamsburg and want a nice dinner (and willing to spend a couple bucks), check out the Trellis on Duke of Gloucester Street (or DoG Street to the locals).
