Standout qualities: Three triple-thick slabs of bacon, slow cooked for four hours, seared with a Maker’s Mark bourbon glaze and topped with cherries. This salty-sweet umami bomb is one of the most unique—and popular—appetizers around.

What’s Unique: The restaurant, built on the grounds of a former country club, is part of a complex that includes a more casual pub and a seasonal pool club.

Fun Fact: The bacon appetizer was the first dish they created for the Teresa’s Prime menu.
