High Point and low point
Eating out in Sewanee has had its highs and lows (the low being Mi Casa, where the one time I went we were seated in a booth next to a window sill that had a sprinkling of dead flies).
On the other hand, there's not much else to do but have dinner out once the sun goes down.
Last night we decided to go upscale, or about as upscale as this area gets. ...
We drove about six miles away to High Point, a restaurant in Monteagle. It's in a grand old house that Al Capone supposedly bought for his mistress (although why Al Capone would have a mistress in Monteagle, Tenn. is beyond me).
Now it's just another too-expensive restaurant, but weirdly, the mahi was excellent. (I say weirdly because I've never eaten any seafood but catfish and fried shrimp in Tennessee.)
And yes, it does have a wine list. It wasn't so long ago that this was a dry county.
