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!

WINKLER BAKERY521 SOUTH MAIN STREETConstructed 1800, restored 1968
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:-)

A Visit to Beautiful Lake Lure in North Carolina

I have lived in North Carolina since the early 90's.  I had heard of Lake Lure but have not taken the time to visit until now.  I don't know why I waited so long.  It is beautiful. I will share some of my photos and some tidbits I found online...

A bit of history....
In 1925, the Morse family created Carolina Mountain Power Company and funded the construction of a dam on the Broad River (through a mortgage) which produced the lake after which the town is named. The full impoundment of Lake Lure was completed in 1927.

I decided the best way to see the lake was to venture out onto the lake.  You can take a pontoon boat ride with Lake Lure Tours, and that is just what I decide to do.  It takes about an hour, and you have a cruise on the lake and learn a bit about the Lake Lure and its history.
There are houses of all shapes and sizes on the lake. Lovely views from the pontoon boat... The Lake Lure area has been used several times as a filming location, beginning with Thu…
