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 Bakery in Old Salem NC

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:-)

Childress Vineyards in Lexington NC

There are a ton of wineries in NC.  Childress is one that Cindy and I had the opportunity to visit last Nov.  It is beautiful.

We signed up for the winery tour.  One of the first things they asked was "is there anyone here who has not heard the Childress name?"  I think Cindy and I were the only ones to raised a reluctant hand.  The inaudible gasps were deafening.  We soon learned he is a NASCAR guy and NASCAR is huge in NC.  Here is a quote from their site....

"By opening the doors to Childress Vineyards in 2004, NASCAR team owner Richard Childress fulfilled a longtime dream that grew from the days when he first began racing in California and visited wineries with friends. What began as camaraderie and good times soon became an engaging passion for world-class wines and then the vision to build a world-class winery."

We visited right before Christmas.  I loved the entry door.
Let the tour begin....
