We are glad we chose Crawford & Son for our special anniversary dinner. The food was spectacularly presented and tasted even better! It was clear that the ingredients were very carefully selected to include prime vegetables in season, and the flavors were beautifully balanced. Reservations were only available at the bar and the occasional banter from other patrons was very friendly and unobtrusive. Thank you to the bartenders and servers for being so attentive without hovering or pretense, and for timing the service to give us just the right amount of time between courses. Those special touches and kind considerations made us feel valued and meant so much. We now have a new favorite restaurant in Raleigh. More

Contemporary American | Chapel Hill, Durham

Always immaculate, caring service and staff, gorgeous intimate setting, and the best food you'll ever have. They accommodated the most unusual requests and allergies (I informed them well ahead of time) and were so helpful for our party member who had extremely strict dietary requirements. He can never eat away from home so this was a very special treat for him. The extra touches and nibbles between courses took the experience far beyond our expectations. More

Discover Chapel Hill

As one of the fastest-growing metro areas in the country, it's no surprise that the restaurant scene keeps heating up in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. These central North Carolina cities are collectively known as the Triangle, and, thanks in part to the number of universities and colleges in the area, there is an abundance of excellent restaurant options. Although essentially every type of international and American cuisine is available, some of the more prevalent options are eclectic Asian, Italian, steakhouse and seafood. Chapel Hill has one of the oldest restaurant and bars known for great hamburgers while an upscale Durham restaurant serves Mexican dishes with a modern touch. Classic southern fare is of course on the menu too.
