Lunch in Greensboro, NC
I am looking for a nice place to have lunch in Greensboro for a family celebration (only adults, no kids). Something nice, but not too stuffy. Prefer not to go to chain restaurants. Restaurants that use local foods would be best. Thanks.
I'm not sure how much local foods are incorporated into Lucky 32's menu. I never thought of them that way but perhaps I am wrong. I do know that Sweet Basil's and Basil's & Co. both have a commitment to locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. As does Riva's Trattoria.

"Lucky’s has changed—but not too much. Our culinary journey during the past few years with Chef Jay Pierce has been carrying us toward Southern foodways and locally-sourced food. So we’ve fully embraced this adjusted trajectory and we’ve even changed our name—to Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen! What’s more, we’re offering his amazing side dishes, like beans and greens and his incredible collard greens, as optional sides with most any menu selection. We bet that makes Lucky’s the only “meat-and-three” joint that has a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence"
When I used to visit friends in Greensboro, we always visited Jack's Corner Mediterranean Cafe near UNCG:
1601 Spring Garden St
Greensboro, NC 27403
It's in an old gas station, so it probably won't meet your "nice" requirement--it's clean, but probably too informal/casual. But man, they serve some of the best lunch around!
