Fall in Love with Upstairs at the Mansion All Over Again
Sweetwater Flower Shop owner and master floral designer, Jack Wilson, has two great ways for you to celebrate Valentine’s Day all during the month of February. First, visit the shop and discover fresh cut flowers, florals, women’s apparel, designer-inspired jewelry, home décor, and gifts galore that are perfect for just about every occasion. Secondly, visit the all-new Upstairs at the Mansion restaurant, now called Kelly D’s Upstairs at the Mansion after Kelly Raper Dalton, our new Executive Chef.
Kelly, a lifelong resident of Monroe County, discovered her love for the culinary arts at an early age, spending many hours in the family kitchen with her mom, Pat, who was an excellent cook. Kelly’s actual career as a chef started soon after she catered a large wedding for a family member. Self-taught, Kelly’s experiences have consisted mainly of catering weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and special events, in addition to restaurant management. Kelly’s other hobbies include singing, horseback riding, and bowling.
Kelly’s dream, which has been to own a tea room style restaurant with a southern flare, will be realized in February when Jack leases Kelly D’s Upstairs at the Mansion, (formerly Upstairs at the Mansion). Kelly D’s Upstairs at the Mansion will open for business on Monday, February 4, after her Grand Opening on Saturday, February 2.
Kelly D’s Upstairs at the Mansion Grand Opening on Saturday, February 2, from 2 to 5 pm will feature samples of many of the featured menu entrees Kelly will offer, including homemade soups, salads, sandwiches, paninis, and teas – all served with a southern flair. Her other specialties include chicken salad, pimento cheese, and homemade dumplings. Kelly also promises you that you will fall in love with each one of her homemade pies and desserts.
Kelly D’s will be open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 11-3 beginning Monday, February 4. Kelly D’s will be closed Tuesdays and Saturdays initially, with the possibility of being open on Saturdays in the future. Kelly looks forward to meeting each of you, as well as exceeding your culinary expectations.
