Research Triangle Park: Any good lists?

beebs Jan 17, 2008 07:29 AM

Does anyone know of a list of RTP-area restaurants (around 54/55)? There are various "lists" on restaurants for Durham, Chapel Hill, Raleigh, Cary, etc. but I've yet to see a good one for the RTP area (esp. since some consider RTP to be part of Durham...). I recall hearing about several restaurants in the 54/55 area that sounded intriguing, but for the life of me, can't remember names! And, that area's so wacky-crowded, it'd be a chore/pain/possibly life-threatening to dip in and out of the numerous shopping centers to scan for names....Any help will be appreciated (as well as particular names of restaurants!)

    Are you looking for any particular cuisine? Also, "54/55" is a pretty big area...are you looking near a particular facility in RTP?

      I *think* Ross Grady has/had a list. Maybe if you search this board for his name you can get a link.

        I'm thinking one mile radius around intersection of Hwy. 54 and Hwy. 55 -- there are a lot of shopping centers with ethnic cuisine.....pretty much any restaurant.

        Will check Ross Grady -- thanks, LulusMom, for tip....

        There's a website: http://www.rtplunch.com/ that has reviews and maps of RTP area restaurants.
