“Brilliant Asian fusion in Chapel Hill”
Lantern was opened in January 2002 by brother-sister team Andrea and Brendan Reusing, along with help from many friends including Silvia Pahola, Ric Palao and David Doernberg, who is responsible for our striking design and warm glow. The menu at Lantern is a marriage of Asian flavors and North Carolina ingredients sourced mainly from local farms and fisheries. It has been named one of "America's Top 50 Restaurants" and "best farm-to-table restaurants" by Gourmet Magazine, as one of "America's 50 Most Amazing Wine Experiences" by Food & Wine and as "Restaurant of the Year" in 2009 by The News & Observer.
Top restaurant in Chapel Hill- bar none. Best culinary team around. 100% worth the price tag. GO GO GO and DO NOT pass on dessert.
Try the pork and chive dumplings (the pork is sourced from local pastures) as an appetizer. The seasonal fried soft-shelled crab was phenomenal. For dessert and to celebrate my fiancé's birthday, we had the Yuzu pudding with fresh blueberries sided with two digestifs from their wide selection.
