When An’s (2800 Renaissance Park Place, Cary) promotional team invited me to a blogger night to sample some cocktails and appetizers, I was thrilled. An’s beautifully presented dishes, photographs of which are always on rotation at the RDU baggage claim screens, have tempted me for years, but I had not managed to visit the restaurant

Back in the fall, I spent a few days at TOPO Distillery’s facilities as part of the Terra VITA Sustainable Classroom. It was a strange sort of torture being so close to their organic, 99.6% local (more on that later) array of spirits that includes white whiskey, vodka, and gin. So I asked Esteban McMahan,

The exciting events for Triangle-based foodies are piling up yet again! Honestly, I’m not sure they ever stop piling — we seem to support an awful lot of delishness for a relatively small metro area. I think that means all us eaters deserve a round of applause … or of digestives. Ouzo, anyone? I’ve cherry-picked

Hey folks, just posting a reminder about the Black Tie & Tails Ball for those of you interested! I won’t be making it there, which is probably good because I need Saturday night to prepare for my annual Oscar party, but I wish I could join in for this great fundraiser. Here’s what I posted

Weathervane 201 S. Estes Drive University Mall, Chapel Hill Website $11–$38 Weathervane is the restaurant portion of Southern Season, and hearty southern dishes have a definite home here.

About a year and a half ago, I visited the the Carolina Tiger Rescue in Pittsboro. They are an excellent nonprofit organization that provides homes for big cats that have been abandoned or abused, whether they are reclaimed from a zoo or given up by owners who can no longer care for the exotic creatures.

Baguetteaboutit Various Triangle Parking Lots Website Despite the fact that I really want to spell it bahgeddaboudit, I can’t resist a food truck with a good pun for a name. A good bun, in this case, too. Baguetteaboutit is one soldier in the Triangle’s army of food trucks, and I’ve had their sandwich rolls twice

It’s been two years since my last update on hunting for the perfect trivia spot in our corner of the Triangle, and that’s because we thought we had found a winner at the West 94th Street Pub, conveniently located just down the road from my house. Their trivia was on Wednesday nights. It had the

Biryani House 744-A East Chatham Street Chatham Square, Downtown Cary Website Entrees: $8 to $13 I’m always looking for Indian food that blows me away in the Triangle, and Biryani House made a pretty good attempt at that. Only Saffron has done better, and because it’s on the pricier side, my quest for more affordable,
