Boston Hound Seeks Help with Greensboro Recs...
Hi everyone, I'm doing a college visit in two weeks for a three-day weekend and would welcome some recommendations for good chow. I'm particularly interested in sampling some authentic southern fare, as well as finding some great cafes for breakfast or lunch.
Are there any treats unique to Greensboro or the surrounding area? I will have a car.
Thanks so much!
I go to Greensboro 2 or 3 times a year to meet a friend from Richmond (it's halfway) and we never miss an opportunity to go to Bianca's (www.biancasrestaurant.com) and a deli named Giacomo's (http://www.restaurants.com/static/us/336/3365472888.html).
Also, we had a nice meal at Elizabeth's Pizza on Lawndale.(http://www.elizabethpizza.com/locations/
)As you can tell we do the "Italian thing".
Recently someone from there recommended Southern Lights (http://www.google.com/maps?hl=en&safe=off&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&hs=0bn&q=southern+lights&near=Greensboro,+NC&radius=0.0&latlng=36072500,-79792222,17858255440554540001&sa=X&oi=local&ct=authority) to me, but I did not get a chance to try it. Here is a link to other recs from chowhound I came across http://www.chowhound.com/topics/331093
Hope this helps.
Check out http://triaddiner.com/ for menus in Winston Salem, Greensboro and High Point. There are menus for many of the restaurants suggested here. I don't dine in Greensboro much, but Ganache and Giacomo's deli are both favorites.
Also, I used to go for ice cream at the Yum Yum across from UNCG a lot. Its not fancy, but people seem to really love the hot dogs and milkshakes (which I think is about all they serve).
