Asterisk Supper Club (2 reviews)
When you walk in…
you’ll immediately feel as though you are stepping back in time… to a very sophisticated establishment in a very cool moment in time.
Times were different, times were slow
Relaxed and read under chandelier’s glow
Clotted cream churned for freshly-baked scones
Presented together atop marble stone
Before plaster and plastic was terrazzo and red brick
1890 first saw this mahogany Brunswick
Before e-books, e-friends and social media hubs
Were real books, real friends and local supper clubs
Remember when food was fresh, friends were cherished and community mattered more?
To host the club was a labor of love and service not a chore
Bellies laughed and eyes smiled as familiar faces arrived
Cheers to when guests were friends and supper clubs thrived
A place there still may be, where locals oft convene
A daily jubilee – jovial North State’s treat
Where all the days are holidays, not a care in mind
From tea time to chardonnays, it’s liberty defined
Hang the mink, prime the flume
Gather round the stove
Classic drinks and comfort foods
Uptown’s treasure trove
Contented clocks unwind at dial, no deadlines can impose
Come on in and stay a while…
Asterisk – Where time slows
Everyday from 12pm – 4pm
Hello…is it TEA you’re looking for?
Tea. Done fancy, classy, relaxy, pretty.
Fifteen types of tea. Tea Sandwiches, homemade scones with made in house clotted cream and jam, and little tasty treats. Served in dainty eclectic tea cups and tea pots. A special day experience only a tea party can create.
The most adorable restaurant in town. We ordered tea before lunch, and they brought it out in small teapots with vintage teacups and sugar cubes. Amazing! Next time we want to try the full tea service. Can't wait!
Seriously the nicest restaurant teatime I have had in the states. Wonderful, homemade treats and delicious tea service in a gorgeous atmosphere. Seriously beautiful. Walls of bookshelves, chandeliers, mis-matched tea services. So comfy and homey and delicious! Great staff too!
