If you're downtown at the Convention Center, nearby bakery favorite Lucettegrace does an amazing to-go lunchbox where you choose a sandwich, side and sweet treat for $12ish. Katie does this more often than she'd like to admit...
Literally the most charming and scrumptious bakery of all, with a polished and modern vibe!
“One of our favorite restaurants in Raleigh, Garland continues to surprise and delight. The seasonally driven menu is influenced by the flavors of India and Asia, with locally sourced ingredients reinvented with a distinctly Southern flair. With a cocktail and wine menu that is exceptional, we can't recommend Garland enough. Reservations suggested. Outdoor dining available.”
“Great music and other events like Beard contests, and bard and storytelling competitions. Much fun. Great venue. ”
“The food is great. The lines to get in are normally long so you'll have to plan ahead but it's worth it.”
“Award winning, brewery, bar, bookstore and dumpling Restaraunt! All in one! Hard to choose between MUSTS and EATS, but since it’s so much more than Eats, categorized as a Must! ”
