  • Another addition to the recently refurbished/reopened Hillsborough Street in Raleigh. Urban Food Group's Frazier's Wine Bar/Lounge is now open (reopened if you want to be picky) at 2418 Hillsborough Street. The bar still has food but the menu is limited and the concentration will be mostly on beverages. It is open daily from 5 pm until 1 am.

  • It appears as if we are getting closer to new life at the former Biscuit Station / Mema's Biscuits on the outskirts of downtown Raleigh at 100 N. Person Street. Word on the street (literally) is that Ruben's will open in the next two weeks and will still feature good ol' Southern cooking!

  • You might not notice this the next time you are in there, but it is worth noting. The Carolina Brewery in Pittsboro, got six new tanks this week to help them keep up with the increased wholesale demand for their beer. Sounds like a good enough reason for me to stop in and have a cold one. Just to make sure they put them in correctly!

Friday Fun Food Facts - August 13, 2010

Triangle restaurant news...that not everyone knows. Impress your co-workers at the water cooler

  • OK, since there isn't much good news coming out of Chapel Hill these days (i.e. football), let's start with some good news out of Chapel Hill...

  • First up, the much anticipated Five Guys famous burger joint opened up this week on the circle in Meadowmont, in the former Azure location.

  • Also in Meadowmont, Firehouse Subs opened this week right next to Café Carolina (bet they were happy about that!). This comes a few months after Firehouse closed up their downtown Chapel Hill location.

  • And so as to not be shown up, Chapel Hill's East 54, just a mile down the road, made a couple of big announcements. First, Chocolaterie Stam has opened after moving from its former Chapel Hill North location.

  • Also in Chapel Hill's East 54, Archira Thai and Sushi has opened up and will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.

  • Over in Raleigh, a Raleigh restaurant legend opened up his new digs this week on a famous corner. If you've eaten at The Mandarin House, The Abacus, The Great Mall of China, The China Café and Grille and most recently, the Duck and Dumpling, then you've enjoyed David Mao's creations. Now, at the corner of Hillsborough and Oberlin, in the former Darryl's/Red, Hot & Blue location, David has opened up David's Dumpling and Noodle Bar. Early reviews are extremely positive!

  • Golden Corral's flagship restaurant on Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh has been rebuilt from the ground up and will be 12,800 sq. feet in size, and have 444 seats when it re-opens today. It includes food pavilions featuring Italian, Mexican and Asian specialties, an open flame grill, traditional American cuisine and a dessert Pavilion. Strap on the feed bags!
  • Looks like a "showdown" is brewing in downtown Raleigh. We got word this week that Dickey's BBQ will be moving into the bottom of the new Progress Energy building (former Pharoah's location) which is almost directly across the street from Raleigh's legendary Cooper's Barbecue. Should be interesting!

  • Also in downtown Raleigh, I just got word that we are less than a month from seeing the newest location of Z Pizza. Steve Drotts confirmed that the opening date is just three weeks off. The new location will be on the ground level of the Bank of America building, right at Raleigh's new city plaza. He also announced that they will be serving breakfast! This will be Z Pizza's third Triangle location.

His family and friends in the restaurant community are putting together a number of unique events to help raise money to offset the growing medical costs.

  • Ever wanted to see how coffee is made? Raleigh coffee roasting company Larry's Beans has announced the next date for its popular factory tour: Sept. 25 from 11:30 to 1:30. On the tour, you'll get to check out the place where the Larry's staff roasts all the beans and also see many of the factory's eco-friendly features. Those include the bio-fuel pump out front, the awesome open-air layout of the plant and of course the Veggie Bus that runs on recycled oil. There will be snacks from Neomonde, beverages from Big Boss and live music. Sign up by e-mailing: with the # of people in group, contact name, and phone number.

  • Downtown Raleigh's "Restaurant Week" is happening August 23-29 where restaurants will be offering up three-course meals for either $20 or $30 depending on the venue. Get more information here.
  • Looks like the former Camille's Sidewalk Café location in Cary is getting a new tenant. Signs in the store indicate that Tijuana Flats will be opening in the popular center next to Trader Joe's at the corner of Kildaire Farm Road and Cary Parkway. Their site confirms this, but no open date has been set (and still gives us time to let them know they've spelled "Carry" wrong on their site). This will be the 2nd Triangle location of Tijuana Flats (E. Millbrook Road in Raleigh).

  • Morrisville got big news this week from a project that has been "in the works" since 2006. The ParkWest project, at the corner of Chapel Hill Road and Cary Parkway, will break ground in a week or so. Target will anchor the location, but will be joined by the following dining options - New Japan Express, Qdoba Mexican Grill, Zoe's Kitchen, Kilwin's Chocolates and Ice Cream, Ruckus Pizza, Pasta and Spirits, and the Triangle's first Omaha Steaks store.
  • Over in Durham, Taverna Nikos has been sold and is operating under new management. Things continue "as is" for now, but at some future time the restaurant will close for renovations and a new theme. The Nikos Taverna in Morrisville continues to be owned by Bill Bakis.

  • There is also word this week that the former location of Anotherthyme (which closed in fall 2009 after nearly thirty years) will get a new tenant. No word as of yet.

  • In downtown Durham, Old Havana Sandwich Shop will be opening at 310 E Main Street this fall. And yes, these will be "real" Cuban sandwiches as the owner is Cuban, as well as his cousin, who worked as a cook in Cuba.

  • Some more exciting news out of Durham this week - West End Wine Bar will be opening a brand new pool hall at West Village! West End Billiards will be in the same building as the wine bar .

Exciting Additions to Snapfinger Catering
I've probably never been more excited about the two new additions to our site this week, and I know you will be too!

I have been friends with Sheila Ogle (owner of The Matthews House in Cary) for a d
Matthews House Logoozen years now and have always had a tremendous amount of respect for her. She called me a few weeks ago wanting to know how we could partner up. Needless to say I was eager to make that happen and am pleased to welcome them to the Snapfinger Catering line-up.

Since buying The Matthews House, Sheila has made their food, and now their catering, a primary focus. Not only do they dazzle their wedding guests every weekend, but they are extending their focus as they take their "show on the road" into corporate catering. Their brand new, state-of-the-art kitchen is headed up by Chef Rich Lucido, and his work is simply amazing.

When you've got to impress, look no further than The Matthews House Catering.

Speaking of impressive, we are equally excited to welcome to the site the Triangle's largest catering service for the past four years running (according to Triangle Business Journal) -Picnic  Basket The Picnic Basket.

Let's just say their menu is absolutely amazing. I dare you to look over their menu without drooling. It simply isn't possible. They have everything from breakfast options galore, to every kind of sandwich known to man, to themed lunch and dinner buffets that will leave your guests talking about it for weeks.

Do yourself a favor and try The Picnic Basket today!
