An encore is never easy, and the Triangle’s 2017 is a tough act to follow.
Last year seemed to be something of a coming out party for our dining scene, the culmination of a decade of locked-in-a-room ambition, passionate farmers, creative chefs and space for big ideas. The rest of the country found us and marked Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill not just as some Southern shining star, but one of the great places to eat in America right now.
The spotlight is fixed and bright and everyone’s watching.
Here are some of the projects to keep an eye on, ones that will help shape how we eat in the years to come and those hoping to make a mark in the Triangle’s big moment.
Never miss a local story.
