Pre-Show in Greensboro

Nakajima Mar 28, 2009 02:26 AM

Good eats in Greensboro?

Near Coliseum if possible, but not necessary.

Locally owned and non-chain preferred.

Thanks to all posters!

Had one of the great meals of my life at the Ravenous Pig in Orlando from a Chowhound tip!

    There is a wonderful italian restaurant alled Bianca's just a couple of blocks from the coliseum. It looks like a dump from the outside, but ignore that; the food is excellent.


    Otherwise, if you do a search on here you'll find lots of suggestions...Bistro Sofia, Undercurrent, Liberty Oak are a few good choices.

        Bumping this because we are also looking for recs for a great, casual lunch, preferably a good place to catch a drink or two as well, near Coliseum before heading to a concert.

        Any ideas for something casual and good?

          Southern Lights (105 Smyres Place) is a great, casual resturant not far from the coliseum. Its open for lunch on Monday through Friday (but not Saturday or Sunday), but I think its closed between 2:00 and 5:00, so they may or may not work for you. Fishbones (not Bonefish Grill, the chain) is located on Walker Avenue. Its a nice local seafood place with a good beer and wine selection. I'm not sure if they are open for lunch, however...you might want to contact them and see. Natty Greene's, located downtown on Elm Street, might also be a good option. Its a brewpub with above average food.

              Go to Lucky 32. It has everything you are looking for.

              From L32, one R turn and you are at GC.

            Spreadhead's right...we're going to the Dead concert this Sunday. I keep forgetting it's Easter. A kind veggie burrito from Shakedown may be just what the doctor ordered. :)
