Global, International | Chapel Hill, Durham

We enjoy having dinner at Elaine's. The ambiance is inviting with its low lighting, white tablecloths and candle on each table.We chose the prix fixe accompanied by wines. We appreciated the amuse-bouche, a tasty little amount of soup served in the most adorable cups. Our friendly waiter recommended the duck livers for one of us as an appetizer and that turned out to be a disappointment: overcooked on a mushy toast with goat cheese. The salmon was cooked just as requested. My husband was very satisfied with the catfish gumbo. Our waiter recommended the appropriate wines with each of the three courses. We enjoyed two of the wines but thought that the dessert wine was too sweet and left most of it. The chocolate cake with mocha ice cream was scrumptious but the pecan cake with the flan was a little dry. Although it was a busy evening our waiter was very attentive and gave us great service.

We've been going to Lantern for ten years now and it's still going strong. Pleasantly unfussy surroundings with good service and delicious food. All the dishes I tasted - oysters, roast carrots, whole bass - were delicious, and so were the deserts. Good wine list too. More

My favorite in the Triangle area for authentic Greek food. I was raised on it so I’m very particular. The traditional dishes like the pastitsio and Mousaka are delicious and the portions are generous. Don’t leave without tasting their tsiziki sauce on warm pitas. I’m hungry thinking about it. More

Excellent food and service. this is a great restaurant for a special occasion or a night for a great meal regardless of the occasion. The meals are select cuts of meal, well prepared. the sides are more than enough for two. Great selection of wine and you can have a good wine without spending the bank. they have selections for someone with a greater taste for wine than me though. More

My family has enjoyed the Weathervane for many years on many special occasions, including a rehearsal dinner for my friend's wedding. The service is always pleasant. We like the food a lot, especially their brunch Eggs Benedict. For out-of-town guests it's nice to be able to stop by Southern Season also for them to try some local goodies or souvenirs. More

Indian | Chapel Hill, Durham

This is a review of only my latest visit to my very favorite place in Boone. Everything that everyone (5 different people, four from out of town) ordered was delicious, served up by a super friendly, attentive, and welcoming staff. If you like Indian food, you should know that this place consistently surprises friends and acquaintances from out of town who, almost invariably, tell me that this place has the best, most authentic Indian food that they've had anywhere in the states... Some of my favorites: Lamb/Goat/Chicken Krahi, Bhoti Kebab, Chicken Tandoori, Paneer (any sort), and Saag (any sort)... and the absolutely necessary Garlic Naan. (.A testament to how good things are here is my unwillingness to order the same thing on any two successive visits... too many things are too tasty to get stuck in a rut.) Be sure to have the Kachumber salad (wonderful tamarind and mint (I think) dressing, and the Kulfi (either pistachio or mango) for a great finish. More

Overall it was ok. Food was decent, appetizers were excellent. Some of the best spinach artichoke dip I’ve had. Service was a little slow, but it was pretty busy. Oddly enough, you have the overwhelming smell of popcorn since you are sitting next to the concessions counter at the movie theater in the same building. For a group it’s worth it. More

Our name comes from the Italian for oil ("olio") and vinegar ("aceto"). In Italy they say "ah-TCHEH-toh" but in the South we just simply pronounce it "ah-SAY-toh. At Olio & Aceto Cafe we offer fresh food made in house, using products from Blue Sky Oil & Vinegar, to give you unique flavors you will not find anywhere else. We proudly serve sliced bread from Durham's Ninth Street Bakery and Imagine That Gluten Free. More
