The 1895 Grille, a contemporary Southern restaurant, is in the historic Holly Inn at Pinehurst Resort in the town of Pinehurst, North Carolina, an hour southwest of Raleigh. Surrounded by the pine forests and rolling hills that make up North Carolina’s Sandhills region, Pinehurst is an oasis for visitors, offering shopping, outdoor recreation, spas and fine dining. On New Year’s Eve 1895, The Holly Inn, now listed as a National Historic Landmark, opened its doors, becoming the first hotel in the area and establishing Pinehurst as a place to retreat. The dining room of The 1895 Grille is in The Holly’s original carriage entrance and the dining room, staff and menu reflects the humility and elegance of its origins.
