Savoy in Raleigh
Just came across this restaurant and have not heard of it. Web site looked interesting;
restaurantsavoy.com They are on Leadmine, assuming in the location that formally was Fins and then another place that I guess is already gone.
We went there several weeks ago an enjoyed it very much. The menu delivers and is priced well.
Had the onion tart and chicken leg confit... both nice. For the main course we had the herb crusted trout and the chicken breast. Again, all very good.
Going back again tonight.
Went today for lunch. Very impressed. Nice modern decor with lots of wood, metal, and black leather. Lunch is a great value. I had the grilled romaine hearts with red wine vinagrette, skirt steak with steak fries and bernaise, and a chocolate torte/mousse/truffle for dessert. All three were uniquely and artfully presented. They tasted pretty darn good too.
It is in the old Fins location. A bit hard to find but they have some temporary signs up to help you find it.
Had a delightful dinner there a few weeks ago with friends. Worth seeking out, I think... and reasonably priced considering the quality of food.
I ate veal sweetbreads, a romaine salad with Roqeufort dressing, and the pan-seared duck; my wife had a mixed green salad with figs and apples, and the Kentucky ham and gruyere stuffed chicken. The kitchen knows what it's doing.
(I tasted some other dishes too - my friends and I are horrible in restaurants, passing forks around - but I am not recalling too clearly what they were - I distinctly remember a really good onion tart in there somewhere.)
