Sunday Dinner in Raleigh in Walking Distance to Progress Energy Center

  • 5

We have about 4 couples driving to Raleigh to see a matinee performance at Memorial Auditorium. Are there any suggestions for decent restaurants open Sunday within walking distance so we can park just once near the performance? Doesn't have to be fancy and expensive, but can't be a dive either. My research hasn't really turned up much

  1. The Pit (barbecue) and Sitti (Lebanese) are nearby. They are both open on Sunday.

      Sitti is a good choice, very good. Great staff, delicious food.

    2. Also look in to the .. R Bus (someone correct me if I'm wrong) that does circle the city. Raleigh, while walkable, can seem a bit spread out.

        The bus stops early (8ish IIRC) on Sundays, otherwise it definitely expands the range of possibilities.

      2. Check out any of the Empire Restaurants - which have varying hours on Sunday - including the Raleigh Times, which has a great beer selection, a nice atmosphere, and top-notch bar food. Sitti, the Pit, Gravy, and Duck & Dumpling are among the others.
