South Line Brewing

We are all for a laid-back, family friendly atmosphere with good bites and great brews!  And if our dogs are welcome to join in the fun… even better!  With this in mind, we set out to find somewhere to spend a summer afternoon a couple weekends ago, and every expectation was met (and then exceeded) at South Line Brewing in Cary! 

Located directly across from Vicious Fishes, South Line Brewing features unique beers and ciders inspired by the flavors of the season.  Visiting in Summertime means notes of sweet blueberry, tart peach, sour cherry and ripe raspberry, all crafted in-house in an inviting ambience.  Simply place your order at the long bar counter inside the facility, and (Summer heat-dependent) take…

Dames Chicken and Waffles

When I first moved to The South after many years of enjoying all the Mexican food Arizona had to offer, the notion of a few celebrated “Southern” foods to mix up my menu was quite enticing.  At the top of my list were biscuits (any jam welcome) and cheddar grits.  I was quickly enlightened to discover that The Triangle is home to an excess of Southern-style restaurants where flakey biscuits and savory grits are only accessories to even more tempting options.  Somehow, I’d completely under-estimated just how good a chicken sandwich could be thanks to a few favorites joints that regularly work their way into our “eating out” rotation.  That being said, Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, so when friends…

Radius Pizzeria

In the heart of charming downtown Hillsborough, sits a rustic, family-friendly pizzeria where pizza is only the beginning!  At Radius Pizzeria, husband-and-wife owners Mick & Kate and their dedicated team treat everyone like a guest in their home.  If you love the idea of ingredients grown right here in North Carolina, it doesn’t get more local than Radius, where most produce for their delicious plates are sourced from counties surrounding Hillsborough.  And believe us, you’ll taste the difference from the very first bite.

 

 

Just behind the restaurant, a patio extends with seating options under shady umbrellas and onto a grassy lawn with picnic tables, making a comfy spot for your four-legged friends…

David’s Dumpling & Noodle Bar

Spring rolls, stir fry and dumplings galore await hungry guests behind the cozy brick entrance which marks David’s Dumpling and Noodle Bar in downtown Raleigh. Having heard about this delightful Asian fusion restaurant where Vietnamese meets Chinese meets Malaysian food a few months back, our only regret is not making this a priority sooner! Needless to say, we won’t let nearly as much time pass before our next visit.

 

 

With over 50 years’ experience dating back to his time as the head chef of The Eskimo in Vietnam, Chef David Mao inspires the flavors on full display at the noodle bar. The restaurant employees are incredibly kind, and waiters exhibit impressive knowledge of the wide menu…

Bittersweet 

There’s so many special places for delightful dining in Downtown Raleigh, but when is the last time you prioritized dessert over dinner?  All it takes is one visit to Bittersweet cocktail and dessert lounge to have you reimagining all the wonderful possibilities for satisfying your sweet tooth.

 

 

Take a seat inside and page through a menu full of beverages and sweets.  Bittersweet is keen on gin with the likes of cocktails such as the “Gin and Jam”, a summery drink served on the rocks with a spoonful of one of seven jam flavors of your choosing as a garnish.  If you’re not a gin fan, not to worry!  Maybe the “Champagne & Gummy Bears” is more your speed, or the alcohol-free “Sun is Shining” with pineapple,…
