We went for a tasting menu on Friday night. What a experience! Great service and stories with the food. A pleasure to meet the chef and hear her inspiration and history. Be prepared to eat many courses (all are delightful).
So I booked Mae on the recommendation from a friend. I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into but the first clue is that you make a reservation on Resy. (Very nice restaurants use Resy.) I found out it was a Prix Fixe menu with wine pairings for an additional cost. It is not a cheap night out, we ended up paying about $170 a person, but it was really worth it. We started with a cocktail and chose the $45 wine pairing. Sidebar: the wine pairing was really special, I never heard of any of the wines, but they were all so good, and really thoughtful with the dish choices. The bartender is one of the best. I tried the four cocktails at my table (it’s my job as a local guide to be thorough:) and all of them were absolutely amazing. Now on to the food. It was 10 courses and really elevated southern fare. The owner was so sweet, and introduced all the dishes to the table. Seriously great food kept coming to the table, I’m sad I’m not there right now. The atmosphere was intimate and casual, the food was outstanding. Highly recommend for any special occasions.

If you’re looking for a special meal–delicious, belly filling, with a load of warm hospitality and genuine feeling, where you can relax at the table–this should be on your list.The music is porch rocking chair/spooky mountains/toe tapping perfect. The new decor is swank (big fan of the velvet chairs which are actually comfortable), and the lovely ceramics were commissioned from a local potter.

Finally got to try Mae. Much more expensive than yonder, but also much better. Didn’t have a bad dish. Still thinking about the biscuits.
