Dinner suggestions in RTP, NC?

Looking for a place for a small group to meet beween Durham and Raleigh. Proximity to I-40 is probably preferable in terms of where folks are coming from. Is there something in that corridor around 55&54? Around Morrisville? Flexible about cuisine, doesn't need to be fancy, just tasty. Some ambience a bonus. Thanks!

  1. Hmm, let's that area, I've always had decent chow at Babymoon Cafe on Airport Blvd. right off of 40. There was a thread not too long ago here discussing Mez (Page Road? Miami Blvd.? Not entirely sure which), but I've not been there. Thai Lanna on 55 is also pretty good.

    1. Zero ambience, but great food can be had at 9N9, a vietnamese restaurant at the corner of miami and alexander (in that strip mall).

      1. Serena's where 54 turns into Miami. Ambience is casual but food and drinks are delicious.

        1. I really like Chosun OK, the Korean restaurant at the intersection of 54 & 55. I think of 54 & 55 as the epicenter of Triangle ethnic dining. City Beverage is also a good chioice

          1. You might consider Saffron in Morrisville. It's got a pretty swanky/contemporary interior which belies its strip-mall location. The chef serves up very good Indian fare with some fusion dishes thrown in. The service, at times, can be spotty, but I think it might fit your bill.
