Part of the excitement around moving to a new place is discovery. And there is no better way to do that than filling up your belly with delicious food. Here is a list of restaurants you should check out:
Angus Barn (Raleigh)- one of the oldest restaurants in the area and definitely a flagship. The place is located in an actual barn by RDU and serves a variety of food, mostly meat. The place has a majestic feeling, especially during Christmas and the welcoming staff is always nice and helpful. It is a place to go on a date, a business meeting, or even with your family and young children (make sure you pick up their homemade cake and they will let the kids go into the kitchen and help to decorate it). And the bonus tip- as for a texas toast instead of their regular bread.
Beasley’s (Raleigh)- one of Raleigh’s downtown landmarks. Beasley’s brings the taste of the south mixed with modern fusion style. Don’t forget to try the chicken on a waffle, one of the South’s signature dishes.
First Watch (Multiple locations)- this was our first restaurant in Raleigh. Right after driving from the airport to the house we first stayed in. It was a lovely surprise. In fact, we thought we were still in California. It is mainly a breakfast/lunch restaurant, serving all types of eggs, sandwiches, and soups. The food is really good and fresh.
Morgan Street Foodcourt (Raleigh)- with about 20 different restaurants to choose from, you will not go hungry (and probably cannot go wrong). We love the Japanese place over there (Katsu), but basically, everything is great!
Scratch Kitchen (Apex)-Scratch represents a partnership between two restaurant families with over a dozen successful concepts between them. With dishes made from scratch, careful attention to details, and focus on southern hospitality, we hope you find Scratch Kitchen and Taproom to be the place to enjoy a great meal with your friends and famil
So that was the quick list. Yes, there are definitely more options out there so we promise to keep updating this post.
