Acme Food & Beverage Co.
Southern | Carrboro
241 reviews

The ovens are turned on early. Six o'clock most days. Earlier on Sunday. Within an hour, bread is rising, apples are being sliced. Pecan pies are pulled hot from the oven and left to cool. Ice cream churns in the machine. Cups of coffee steam on the prep table, the baker's cup marked with chocolaty fingerprints. By midmorning, pork shoulder, rubbed with spices the day before, is slowly smoked. And white buckets are filled with sliced onions. Corn is shucked. The stock that cooked all night is taken off the stove and strained. Bags of fresh shrimp are delivered in old grocery store bags. The waiters arrive in groups, shirts and ties on hangers. By then, every burner in the kitchen is being used. Herbs are chopped. Scallops cleaned. Ovens at 500 degrees. All sauces are checked. Bartenders polish their shakers. Silverware is rolled and every surface is wiped down. Music. Lights. Doors are opened. Dinnertime. At Acme. Seven nights a week. Local never tasted so damn good.

Mandolin
Southern | Raleigh
140 reviews

Mandolin is a breath of fresh air to the Raleigh dining scene, combining a casual atmosphere with fresh, contemporary, Southern fare. Mandolin uses the highest quality local ingredients to create seasonal menus that resonate with foodies and casual diners, alike. We share our food in a relaxed, cozy atmosphere that replaces the stuffiness of fine-dining with Southern charm. The menu and ambiance reflect the character of Raleigh itself- a blend of rustic and refined, contemporary and traditional, rural and metropolitan. Mandolin, like the City of Oaks, is Southern at its roots, but draws influences from around the world. We love our new home in Hayes Barton, just a stone's throw from Five Points, on the corner of Oberlin and Fairview.

R+R Grill
Contemporary American | Chapel Hill
11 reviews

The menu might not be revolutionary, but the quality of each dish is. You take a seat along the large outdoor bar, and your bartender smiles and pours you a cold pint of your favorite draft - just one of the twelve out of R&R's admirable draft selection. You watch as the bartender muddles fresh, locally-grown fruit for your wife's cocktail. I'll take the white chili, you say, and a cheeseburger, medium rare. You're enjoying your drinks and the ambiance of R&R's spacious sunset patio while back in the kitchen, the chef tosses ingredients into a pan - just enough for one bowl - nonsense to the untrained eye. He grills a perfectly-molded patty of fresh, quality sirloin ground in-house and pairs it with a side of homemade potato chips. You're presented with a steaming bowl of chili and a juicy burger, and the real treat begins. Local. Scratch cooking. R&R Grill.

Carolina 1663
Contemporary Southern | Chapel Hill
17 reviews

Carolina 1663 is a fresh, modern approach to classic Southern dishes relying on Farm to Table procurement; preparations are sodium and fat sensitive so that the true freshness of the flavors takes center stage. Our seasonal menus reflect the freshest local produce available as well as selected locally raised meat and poultry. We feature fresh fish sourced from the Atlantic and prepared in a way that highlights its freshness. Our lounge features creatively crafted cocktails, premium wines by the glass or bottle as well as locally brewed draft beers. All of our desserts are hand made in house such as our signature sweet potato cheesecake using fresh North Carolina sweet potatoes, as well as other unique offerings such as a praline panna cotta.
