Statesville NC for a Sunday lunch

I am meetinf friends for lunch in Statesville, NC on a Sunday. Most of the restaurants I have checked are closed on Sunday. Can anyone suggest a nice restaurant where we won't be rushed? Thank you.

When I worked NC I always arrived too late on Sundays to eat in Statesville. But I checked TA reviews and the times of one of the top ones and this one is open on Sundays -

Of course, I just had Thai leftovers so that may be a factor in the one I chose to check

Totally off-topic, but if NC folks are going to read this thread it may be a good place to spread the word on this chef -
http://www.myrtlebeachrestaurantnews...ackground.html

Fast-forward to age 26, when the Sokun Nuon-Slama and her husband, Parisian Guillame Slama, moved to Georgia. She worked in a restaurant for several years before the couple opened a circa 1819 bed and breakfast called the Lafayette Manor Inn in Washington, Ga. During this period, the inn and the chef and her husband were written up in the August 2008 issue of Southern Living magazine.

But today their restaurant home is Whiteville, N.C., where the couple now owns three culinary businesses: New Southern Kitchen Restaurant, which is, “…upscale European and Southern Cuisine with a twist of Asian in an elegant setting,” a tapas and martini bar called Madison Lounge, and a sandwich/ice cream shop called Sophie’s.


A May 2011 article in Wilmington’s WILMA magazine said the Myrtle Beach chapter of the Chaines des Rotisseurs visited the New Southern Kitchen.

Now add Myrtle Beach’s Ocean 17 to Chef Nuon-Slama’s repertoire. Kose said this summer, in addition to opening Ocean 17, the chef is going to Raleigh for a taping of the Food Network’s “Iron Chef” culinary competition program.

Thanks, Sue. i know you would. Starrs, I checked TA and saw Chopstix, but my friend doesn't much like Asian food. Statesville is a hard town to find a good Sunday lunch. Thanks,

Maybe a cafeteria? Sunday lunch could be good at one of those dinosaurs.
There's probably an Olive Garden. LOL

How interesting that chef chose Whiteville!!

They were in the middle of nowhere in GA before then. Got written up in Southern Living, even so. Not sure how they are making their choices, but now she's on to Myrtle Beach

There are a couple of other places maybe if you didn't see this list.

If you are through on another occasion, there is a GREAT hot dog stand on the route 64 exit off of I40. It is "initials" for a name, and it is all walk up to take out. Our kids loved it. Not open sunday.
