Fresh and Local in Downtown Raleigh

Here's a tall order-- I'm part of a group attending a concert at Lincoln Theater soon and we'd like recs for that neighborhood. Is anybody doing seasonal local cuisine downtown? If not how about tapas or sushi or creative latin. Not looking for white tablecloth "fine dining"-- more into great flavors and fun before the concert. Thanks!

  1. Hands down, Zely and Ritz. Seasonal, local, organic and much of it from Coon Rock Farm. Ok, so its Glenwood South and not downtown, but I think its a great option.

      I would recommend Poole's Diner. the food is excellent. Be sure to allow yourself enough time. Everything is made fresh to order, so a meal there can take a while.
