Fodor's Expert Review Second Empire

$$$$ Raleigh American

Wood paneling, muted lighting, and well-spaced tables make for an elegant dining experience in this restored 1879 house. The menu, which changes seasonally, has a regional flavor. The food is intricately styled so that colors, textures, and tastes fuse. A brick tavern on the lower level has a less expensive menu that has included bison short ribs and grilled North Carolina trout.
