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. On the evening we visited, we happened to catch Shelia Casalett, a talented guitarist and vocalist who performs acoustic versions of delightfully familiar songs. Live music spanning…

Old Mill Farm

This week we’re excited to share with you a quaint destination worth the trip no matter where you live around the Triangle.  Old Mill Farm feels like something straight out of your favorite Hallmark movie, so you won’t want to miss it!  With an environment equally playful for kids as it is zen for adults, the only real requirement here is that you have an appreciation for spending an afternoon under the trees with the sound of live music drifting across the farm, and a chance to pet sweet farm animals while you enjoy a bite from the featured food truck.

 

 

Even before walking down the oak-lined dirt road that leads to the main attractions, two gentle donkeys graze in the pasture closest to the entrance.…

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)…

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,…

Jaguar Bolera

Have you heard about this vibrant, sprawling venue in Raleigh where guests enjoy fabulous food, limitless entertainment, and over a dozen varieties of beverages on tap!?  Today we’re talking about the brand new, 50,000 square foot restaurant and event space which proudly blends Southern hospitality with the flavors and beauty of Mexico.  This unique fusion is just as incredible as it sounds, with bursts of eclectic Southern style interplaying with latin influence scattered throughout the artwork, wallpaper and cuisine (brought to you by none other than season 21 Top Chef contestant Manny Barella).  You simply must visit to fully grasp this special experience, coined “Southern Hospitalidad”.
