Triangle Foodie Destinations

best restaurants

I recently asked my followers to contribute to a survey of their favorite foodie restaurants in the Triangle. I was not looking for chain restaurants with food shipped in frozen on trucks. To be nominated, the restaurant had to fit at least one of the following criteria:

restaurants near me

restaurants near me

restaurants near me

restaurants near me

I then left it totally open for people to choose whatever restaurant they wanted. I knew there would be some restaurants that only got one vote — which I’ll post as runners up at the bottom. But I figured that the best ones would rise to the top with lots of votes and I was correct!

And here they are…

Tied for first place with each receiving 25% of the votes…

bella monica raleighBella Monica is an Italian kitchen in Raleigh serving lunch and dinner. They have a gluten free and a kids menu. They were given the Award of Excellence by Wine Spectator in 2015

poole's diner raleighOriginally opened as Poole’s Pie Shop in 1945, Poole’s has kept up with the times and is an iconic Raleigh staple, now a “Modern Diner with Reimagined Comfort Food.” With their locally sourced, seasonal menu (is mac and cheese ever out of season??), this is one to check out!

And believe it or not, Second place was a three-way tie…
