Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas, covering the food and restaurant scene across North and South Carolina.

Critic Deidre Schipani gave Stars Restaurant a good review when they first opened over a year ago, and she revisits to see how new executive chef Joe DiMaio handles the helm since the departure of opening chef Nathan Thurston.

"American vernacular describes the offerings, with a Southern accent as the thread that ties the ingredients to the finished plate," states Schipani. She awards the cuisine three stars and compliments DiMaio's "timing and seasoning."

The service really wows the writer, as she proclaims the waitstaff "not only well-groomed but are well-informed." For Schipani, Stars certainly still shines.
