Raleigh, for breakfast or lunch (got to get their early), Big Ed's, downtown, in City Market.  Good ole southern cooking.   They get most of their veggie's fresh every morning from the state farmers market, which leads to the second place. 

Restaurant at State Farmer's market.  One, again, serves some good ole southern cooking, though some healthy stuff too, lol.  Other one at the state farmers market fs the seafood restaurant.  That is fair, average place to me.

I love a tapas restaurant in Raleigh called Tasca Brava.  The wife is the chef and the husband is the front-of-the-house person.  Great food and great wine selection, too. 

I also love the following restaurants in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area:

- Mama Dip's for southern cooking (Chapel Hill)
- Lantern restaurant (Chapel Hill)
- The Pit bbq restaurant (Raleigh)
- Weathervane (Chapel Hill)
- Dame's Chicken and Waffles (Durham)

Stuffed... Did you know that she died a few years ago?  She had ovarian cancer.    :-[

She was the best cook I've ever met in my life.   They are still in business and still use her recipes.  Her husband is still front of house guy.  The Ecuadorian Corn and Potato Chowder is the most heavenly thing ever!

I had no idea!  How sad!!!  I haven't been there in about 5 years.  I'm glad that they are still in business.  Their food was so good.
