Go up to visit my son for his birthday, basketball game and dinner. Would appreciate any suggestions. He is strictly a meat eater-mainly red meat and fish. Is girl friend has food allergies and can not eat wheat or corn products.

Thanks.

    Sounds like a steakhouse could be a good fit. The Angus Barn is ok but expensive. Zely & Ritz does great tapas and may have some good fish dishes on the menu. How about J Betski's or maybe Capital Club 16 for American/German/Polish meat and potatoes kind of fare? I haven't been to either of those. Or Poole's Diner, which I always recommend, but they don't take reservations.

      18 Seaboard would not be a bad option for you. They have a lot of tasty things but also offer straight up steak and grilled fish that your son would probably appreciate. I'm sure that they could accommodate his girlfriend's allergies.

        What is your price point?

        For a steal and a helluva meal, I love the Oakwood Diner in downtown Raleigh --> have your son order the Churrasco Steak oakwoodcaferaleigh.com

        For upscale, Bloomsbury Bistro is my fave, though I have always had very good meals at Glenwood Grill, too. www.bloomsburybistro.com www.glenwoodgrill.com

        I'm a fan of 18 Seabord as well. Also for Italian-inspired: Vivace and sushi (if your son is in a fish mood!), I like Waraji warajirestaurant.com / www.vivaceraleigh.com / 18seaboard.com

        Finally, I have always enjoyed Fraziers, but have not been since it reopened .... anyone have an update? www.frazierswinebar.com
