Cocktails, apps, downtown Raleigh
I have a friend in town tomorrow night, staying in Raleigh. I'm looking for a lively, hip, but not too noisy place to get cocktails and appetizers downtown. If it were Durham, I'd do City Beverage or the Federal, but I don't venture into Raleigh very often, so I'm hoping someone can give me a few good recommendations. Any cuisine is fine, but a good vibe and great food are paramount. Doesn't have to be cheap, but I don't want anyplace stuffy either. Extra points if the place has good desserts.
