Maximize Your Dining Dollars

The food scene in the Triangle has exploded in the area over the past couple of years.  From burgers to beer, from Laotian to Indian, your dining choices have never been better or more eclectic. 

NC Triangle Dining is all about doing the dining experience virtually so you feel like you've been there before.  If you don't have an unlimited expense account, we all have to choose wisely and according to your tastes.  So my goal is to give you a candid feel for the dining experience at the many local, independent restaurants we have in Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Chapel Hill and more. 

For my reviews I try and stick to restaurants I’ve eaten at multiple times and know well.  My goal is to help you find places that you can eat out at regularly.  And while I do focus on independent, local establishments, occasionally a chain restaurant might slide in there.  I’m also adding short, quick reviews to new places that I’ve tried called: First Take’s and return reviews as Retakes.  And finally, any comp'ed events will be clearly called out as Media events for transparency.  The only way you make a good decision with your dining dollar is by getting an unbiased opinion and I promise to do my best to deliver that honest opinion.   

Bon appetit, my friend!
