It's been the buzz of the town-- something is new at Rapture. This decade-old favorite has always provided New Orleans-inspired southern fare wrapped up with the ideal Downtown Mall experience, but now Rapture has reached a new level of deliciousness. Their secret to this better-than-ever, fresh, local, southern cuisine? Rapture's new chef, Chris Humphrey.
Chef Chris Humphrey specializes in Southern Cookin’, riffing on the cuisine of his Virginia upbringing by bringing his extensive French culinary and haute cuisine experience to bear on familiar southern classics. The resultant creole, soul, and low country gourmet dishes are made even more delicious by Chef’s use of fine ingredients and local sources.
I know... you don't need any more convincing. It is worth mentioning, though, that Rapture also includes a formidable selection of craft, specialty, and rare brews, and an extensive wine cellar, all of which are sure to enhance an already delicious meal.
For only $15, you can enjoy $30 worth of Rapture's gourmet southern cuisine and countless beverages . I'll see you there!
Rapture is located on the Downtown Mall at 303 E. Main Street.
