My wife and I are notorious "foodies" and had heard good things about the new chef at Stone Soup and decided to check it out last Saturday evening when the line to another popular Landrum eatery was out the door at 7:30 PM making our choice an easy one. We had eaten here before to spotty service with long wait times so were not sure what to expect. I ordered a mojito cocktail and my wife had the La Crema chardonnay which was not as cool as expected so when I asked the bartender to chill the glass, he promptly opened a new chilled bottle to my surprise. Entrees were Chicken Isabella with goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes on a bed of baby spinach and two generous sized crabcakes in a lemon buerre blanc sauce with a grilled squash and red pepper medley, a small spinach salad and cheesy smoked gouda grits. I struggled to finish the crab cake entree and then topped off our dinner with a large slice of coconut and lemon curd cake that was a tad dry but was still very flavorful. Our waitress was new and very good as was the support staff making sure glasses were filled which was a welcome change from our previous experience. The tab was $59 before tip for an outstanding dining experience. Even the alfresco dining outside looked appealing with lights strung but could use a privacy fence on the highway to block the traffic noise and make the space more inviting.
