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…

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 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…

Restaurant Review Larkin's on the Lake in Lake Lure NC

Several months ago I was taking a solo adventure to visit Lake Lure.  After arriving, I wanted to enjoy my lunch on the lake, and I found just the place  Larkin's on the Lake.  What a lovely view!  It is also nice to know that time is not of great importance when visiting Lake Lure. You can choose to enjoy your meal inside or out, upstairs or down.  They have two menus on their site.  The downstairs and outdoor dinning menu called the Bay Front Bar and Grill and the upstairs menu titled Larkin's on the Lake.  I chose to eat outside so I could enjoy the cool breeze off the water and the beautiful view.
So lovely to sit outside.  After a long drive, it was nice to have a cold glass of wine. This is what I ordered....delicious!
