Everything on your table at Harvest Moon Grille is sourced from within 100 miles of Charlotte. This is what you could call a Farmer-to-Fork restaurant. Chef/owner Cassie Parsons is also the owner of Grateful Growers Farm, located in Lincoln County, North Carolina. Cassie, a major advocate for eating locally, was named Restaurateur of the Year in 2011 by Charlotte Magazine.
I have been enjoying a brunch of eggs over easy, house cured bacon, locally milled grits, and biscuit (with a mimosa, of course) at Harvest Moon since its inception, but today was the first time I decided to branch out and try the lunch menu. I asked my server what her favorite item on the menu was and she immediately replied, "the fish tacos." So that's what I went with, and I must say these tacos can easily rival those of any West Coast taco joint. Fried North Carolina catfish with Sriracha mayo, cilantro slaw and salsa on flour tortillas with a side of green beans, red & yellow grape tomatoes, almonds and walnuts. A glass of Sauvignon Blanc went beautifully with this meal. Branching out has never been more rewarding.
