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.
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.)
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.
