Every once in a while, you may want to treat yourself to a nice meal at a fine dining restaurant, whether you want to celebrate a special occasion or a job promotion, mark an anniversary or special date night, or simple enjoy a delicious meal from world-class chefs. North Carolina is home to countless restaurants perfect for the occasion, but one was recently recognized as the best in the state.

According to a list compiled by 24/7 Tempo, the best fine dining restaurant in North Carolina is The Fearrington House Restaurant, a Pittsboro establishment with a focus on American/European cuisine. The Fearrington House Restaurant is located in Fearrington Village at 230 Market Street.

Here's what the site had to say about the best fine dining restaurant in North Carolina:

"The tasting menus at this sumptuously appointed establishment, part of the Fearrington Village hotel, retail, and residential development outside Chapel Hill, offer chef Paul Gagne's sophisticated creations, like poached shrimp with coconut custard and lotus root, seared Rohan duck breast with sunchokes and hibiscus, and wild boar volcano shank with blue hominy grits. There is no finer upscale dining experience in this part of the state."

To determine its list, 24/7 Tempo looked at reviews and ratings on local, regional and state sites and "[extrapolated] a shortlist of establishments that fit the fine-dining bill." The list includes eateries that run the culinary gamut from sushi bars and French restaurants to steakhouses and establishments with fixed-price menus.
