January Refresh in Franklin, NC

Welcome to 2024! It’s a new year, a new day, and the perfect opportunity for a refresh. Most folks spend the holidays giving gifts and creating special memories for friends and family. But when’s the last time you did something for yourself? Since January is a slower month (at least compared to the last few), take the time to plan something to refresh you. It could be a massage, dinner out with a special someone, or perhaps a little shopping spree downtown.
Come visit us at Gracious Plates On Main for a memorable dining experience featuring menu items made with fresh local ingredients, a Wine Menu full of unique vinos, a sweet dessert selection, and service delivered with a smile!
