Assaggio's Italian Restaurant in Raleigh NC

I love to try different restaurants.  A few weeks ago Cindy and I were in Raleigh NC.  We asked a local where we should eat dinner.  They suggested Assaggio's Italian Restaurant.  We decided Italian food sounded good so off we went.  

Here is what they say on their website...

"Assaggio's was started on April 26th, 2004 by Dean Biales. A New York Resident for 20 years, Dean wanted to offer authentic Italian Cuisine to the residents of North Carolina."
 "Assaggio's has now grown to one of the finest Italian Restaurants in Raleigh!"

They have a lot to choose from on their menu.    Our meal was served with Garlic Knots.  They were warm and soft.  Really good. 
I had a nice glass of red wine along with a house salad.
I choose the Lasagna.  Cheesy and delicious.  I would order it again.
Had to get a hug from my new friend on the way out...

I really enjoyed Assaggio's.  It is a restaurant that I would love to visit again.  The food was good and the staff friendly. 
Get out and try a new restaurant.  
If you find yourself in Raleigh I suggest Assaggio's.
Happy Eating

A Visti to Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen in Raleigh NC

It has been a while since I have visited a new restaurant.  I did a google search and came up with Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen in Raleigh NC.  Sounded wonderful so I called Cindy and off we went on a restaurant adventure.  Here is a quote from their website.... "A refined take on traditional Southern cuisine. That's the essence of Rye Bar & Southern Kitchen, our onsite restaurant in the heart of Raleigh's vibrant downtown. Executive Chef Michael Rigot's seasonal menus feature the freshest, healthiest produce and meats, all from local North Carolina farms. A main dining room, private dining room, and outdoor patio provide an abundance of seating options. Craft beers, uncommon cocktails, and premium wines head the liquid refreshment line-up."
The restaurant itself is located in downtown Raleigh in Raleigh Marriott City Center. The Bar was lovely.  The night we were there it was packed.  Lively place to be. They brought this lovely platter to our table, they call i…

Winkler Bakery in Old Salem NC

One place Gale and I knew we had to visit was the bakery in Old Salem.  I have enjoyed the Moravian cookies over the years but everyone has told me I had to try the sugar cake.
Look at all the temptations....Yummy:-)

A bit of history....

The sugar cake was amazing.  We took it back to our room and enjoyed the yummy sweetness in front of the beautiful fireplace in our room.  We also shared a bottle of local wine.  What a lovely day:-)
Happy Travels Everyone! KathieyV:-)

Hiking The New Hope Overlook

I signed up for another Meetup group hike.  I never know what I am going to see on these hikes, I am always excited for the new adventure.  I grabbed my camera and headed toward Jordan Lake.  I will be quoting a site I signed up for  It's free.  If you are at all interested in area hiking trails you should check out the site.

"New Hope Overlook Blue Route is a 2.8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Moncure, North Carolina that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash."
Dogs are allowed on the trail. I did not take Brodie. The hikes are at a fast clip with this group so it may be difficult to drag him; literally along. Brodie and I go on 3-mile walks in our neighborhood. After about 3 miles he keeps looking at me as if to say "can we go home now?"  Ann was our fearless leade…
