raleigh/triangle hounds help me find my brain!

So i recently had a baby and ever since then my memory for detail (even food detail!) has escaped me. So please help me out...

A couple years ago I was in the Triangle and stumbled into a great middle eastern place. Here's what i remember - it was either in durham or chapel hill on a main restaurant row not far from a college (maybe duke????). Great looking place - dark walls, beautiful bar - they had belgian beer on tap. Large menu and the food was fabulous. I think it might have been somewhat near a Caribou Coffee though maybe i'm mixing that up in my head.

sigh. i used to be able to recreate info like this in my head, honest.

We're heading back to the Triangle for a couple days before heading to the beach and i wanted to stop in again. If this rings any bells for you, please let me know.

  1. Do you mean Tallula's on Franklin St, in Chapel Hill?

    1. I'm also going to guess Talullah's. It's Turkish(ish), on West Franklin, near UNC-CH. Can't think of anything similar in Durham.

      1. Perhaps you're thinking of the now defunct Bakus on Ninth St.? They offered tapas and wine, had a beautiful wood bar, and sheer linens hanging from the ceiling.

        1. BorntoEat, Totally normal for your brain to go to mush for a little while after having a baby, never fear!

          I agree with others ... I think you're thinking of Tallula's.

          1. Thanks everyone! I'll have a Stella Artois in your honor!
