In fine fettle: “To be in a state or condition of health, fitness, wholeness, spirit or form.”
Welcome to Fine & Fettle, a modern American dining experience with a focus on seasonality, where we want diners to live that good Southern life and eat with purpose. Modern yet approachable, we offer a farm-to-table service featuring locally and sustainably sourced produce plus wellness driven mixology through locally sourced ingredients.
Homey furniture, mismatched chairs, muted colors—the atmosphere we create here is something special, with clean, modern tableware peppered with rustic influences. Sprigs of dried flowers mix perfectly with our crisp linens and tumbler glassware. Feel the vibe of our colonial Southern home turned restaurant with each bite of our small plates and each sip of our handcrafted cocktails.
