Irregardless 

It’s hard to find a better fusion of spectacular cuisine, soothing live music, nostalgic flare and local art than “Irregardless” in downtown Raleigh. Since 1975, this one-of-kind eatery on West Morgan Street has been serving up award-winning pastas, salads and hearty sides, with no shortage of tasty beverages and great atmosphere. 

We’d heard that Irregardless was a must-visit, and this was quickly confirmed within the first few minutes of arrival.  Inside the restaurant, diners are serenaded with live music from local musicians.

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…
