Lots of delicious, locally-sourced food. The Korean scallion pancakes with bbq appetizer was delish. The rotisserie chicken was huge. Knowledgeable & efficient service was a plus. The only downside? Paying for bread. Never encountered that in an upscale restaurant.
We visited UNC area and tried Venable at the recommendation of my daughter. The menu was very diversified with mostly out of the norm dishes. The evening special of whole fish was a table favorite. If you're looking for something special at a reasonable price, Venable is the place to try.
