Where to eat near Cary Amphitheatre (Boothe)?

We have tickets to the amphitheatre in Cary tomorrow night, anybody know a good place to eat near the Boothe Amphitheatre. Relaxed, good. Ethnic, nice, but not necessary.

  1. Lucky 32 is very nearby for semi-fancy American food in a nice setting. Danny's BBQ is also close, but I wouldn't say it's great. Hot Point Deli on Buck Jones Rd is also ok, and Crazy Fire Mongolian Grill is near there, but it's not my favorite. You can get good Chinese food back towards downtown Cary at either Super Wok or Cary Taipei 101, but they're not terribly close. Also over that way is Taqueria Rancho Grande (Mexican) or Klara's (Polish). 35 Chinese is a little closer, but I've never been there. Greg Cox seems to like the Able Bar & Grill, which serves northern Chinese street food, at the corner of Tryon Rd. and Cary Parkway. I've also heard decent things about Tom Yum Thai over near the Galaxy theater.

    1. smith hit the high points, and I recommend Lucky 32 - good food and reasonably priced wine list.
      Tony's Bourbon St. Oyster Bar does half price apps on Thursdays and would be your best option for seafood nearby.
      Some good friends love Bocci Trattoria & Pizzeria, but I've not been there myself.

      1. re: AreBe

        I third the Lucky 32 recommendation.

        Ginger Asian Cuisine in the shopping center with Harris Teeter and Walmart.
        Bosphorus Restaurant, 329 N Harrison Ave # A. It's the best Turkish food in Cary.
        HAVANA GRILL at 404 West Chatham Street for cuban.
