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 it the Signature Bread Board.  Here is how they describe the bread board...
 "Right away, we offer bread from Boulted Bread Co. along with house made pickles and our house made Honey Molasses Butter made with honey harvested from our rooftop beehives."

I find it interesting they have a rooftop beehive.  Nice touch:-)
I decided on the salmon and Cindy had the BBQ biscuit sandwich.  They were both very good.
If you go, you have to get The Charred Carrots with Honey and Goat Cheese.  It's wonderful.  Their menu does change seasonally so check their website for the updated version.
I loved the ambience.  A warm inviting atmosphere. 
The food, atmosphere, and service were top notch.   We had a great experience. 

If you find yourself in downtown Raleigh and you want to enjoy a nice meal out I suggest you visit Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen.  You will be glad you did.
Happy Adventures!

My Stay at The Aerie Bed and Breakfast in New Bern NC

I was excited.  I was finally headed to New Bern NC.  I had been planning this trip for some time.  Now, where to stay? I found a Bed and Breakfast that received outstanding reviews on Trip Advisor.  What do I look for in a review? Friendly people, excellent location, and fantastic sheets.  I love luxurious sheets:-) After a little over a two-hour drive and thanks to my GPS, I arrived at my destination.  (How did we survive without GPS is the big question.  I remember the passenger would be the map reader and instruct the driver in the way they should go and this did not always make for a pleasant trip.)

 "The historic Street-Ward residence, circa 1882, is home to The Aerie, the premier New Bern, North Carolina bed and breakfast inn and event center. The Aerie features a total of nine well-appointed rooms, each with private bath, modern amenities and tasteful décor that reflect the home’s late-Victorian heritage." The beaut…
