A Fabulous Meal on the Hill

Susan says…

If you have not wound your way up Bridge Road for dinner under the red awning, you must put it at the top of your to-do list.  I have had some great dishes.  I have had some great meals.  But this one… this one begs me to wax poetic.

We have reviewed South Hills Market and Café and I have written an open (love) letter to Chef Richard Arbaugh.  The more I eat there, the more I love it.  The combination of cozy atmosphere, friendly and attentive service, gorgeous white dinnerware, fantastic flavor combinations and artistic presentation is like nothing else in our area.  (In fact, in my opinion, SHMC outshines the meal I recently enjoyed at the Greenbrier’s Main Dining Room.)

South Hills Market and Cafe – Charleston WV

One of Fork You’s favorite restaurants is now a Happy Hour destination!

From 4:30-6 pm Thursday through Saturday, you can enjoy a beer for $2 or a glass of wine for $5.  To go along with that, Chef Arbaugh is introducing some special appetizers that are only available during those hours.  (See menu below.)

Shmc tells Fork You the Happy Hour may be extended to Tuesdays and Wednesdays in the future.  In addition, there are a couple other appetizers that may appear on future menu printings including fresh cut fries and an Asian-influenced “taco”.

South Hills Market & Cafe at the Dinner Hour

(May 21, 2009) Susan says…

I have a crush.

Last night, flavors, colors and textures joined hands to create a symphony on our plates at South Hills Market & Café under the masterful direction of Chef Richard Arbaugh.  Let me take you through the concert, one number at a time.

First, the atmosphere: white linen tablecloths, white linen napkins, white plates in artful shapes. Simple table décor of a candle and small potted plant, making for easy conversation around the table.  An intimate, quiet dining room with plush seats to keep you comfortable for the time we lingered.

Next, the menus: a single rectangle of cardstock announces the dishes available that evening. Another details the wine list and a smaller square shows the beers.  The menu is separated into three categories: cold appetizer, hot appetizer, and entrée – about a dozen different creations in all.  The Café is currently offering a prix fixe menu, meaning you can choose three courses for $35 per person, or four courses for $45.
