Greensboro, NC for two nights

I will be in Greensboro, NC for two nights in October for a conference. Would love to avoid the chains and will have a car. What are my options?

Many thanks.

  1. LUCKY 32!!! It is amazing. Get the black bean cakes, or the pesto chicken bowties, or anything on the menu!!!

        Two changes to my May, 2008 list:

        Southern Lights has closed, unfortunately.

        Add Madison Park Cafe, which is across from Lucky 32.

        1. Don't get me wrong. I like Lucky 32. Food is better than most but not what I'd recommend on this board. If that's the best Greensboro can do than shut my mouth, as they used to say in the South.

          Bistro Sophia looks great but haven't been although there are 2 or 3 things on the menu I'd order in a heartbeat. If you want something casual, Giacomo's is Italian. He makes his own salamis, sausage and pastrami that are all incredible. It's really a deli but you can eat in. Or pack a bag to take home.

            I agree with you on Lucky 32. OK, not great. I have been to Bistro Sophia several times and am a fan.

            Here are some additional places I like that you might want to consider:

            Sweet Basils
            Table 16

            Undercurrent Restaurant
            327 Battleground Avenue, Greensboro, NC 27401

            Table 16
            600 South Elm Street, Greensboro, NC 27406

            Sweet Basils (Closed)
            620 Dolley Madison Rd, Greensboro, NC 27410

          2. 2 others that I would highly rec.

            1618 Seafood Grill is excellent.

            The Printworks Bistro

              Liberty Oak and Grenache are in downtown and are neat.
