Hurricane Edition: The Greenhouse of Teays Valley

The greenhouseThe Greenhouse of Teays Valley is an interesting bird. It's a Weber grill seller - and it's also a restaurant/gift shop. It found itself on the 101 Most Unique Places to Dine in WV list, so I convinced my friend Brittany to accompany me.

The greenhouseAs soon as I walked into the place, I noticed the trinkets and gifts up front and then all of a sudden it just opens to a makeshift dining space. The same black chairs you've seen 1,000 times and these plasticky green tablecloths.

The greenhouseThe menu features a few items made on the Weber grill, so I can kind of see the fusion of the two concepts here. But, I went straight comfort food with their tomato bisque and a grilled cheese.

The greenhouseThe tomato soup was good - but it wasn't anything tremendous. I think a Campbell's tomato soup with heavy cream would come pretty close here. The grilled cheese was average, but good. Throw many a fancy cheese in there to spice things up?

The greenhouseOverall, not bad. Not super exciting, but definitely a departure from the everyday.
