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.

      Liberty Oak and Grenache are in downtown and are neat.

      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.

        Sweet Basils
        Table 16

        327 Battleground Avenue, Greensboro, NC 27401

            Two changes to my May, 2008 list:

            Southern Lights has closed, unfortunately.

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