Two things about the soon-to-open, Vidrio restaurant in downtown Raleigh... food and art. Incredible! Make that, YUMcredible. Last week I attended Vidrio's media preview event and got to check out their gorgous digs and sample their cuisine.
Vidrio's theme is togetherness anf cooking with love. They serve family style dishes as well as small plates, They feature Mediterranean food and focus on sourcing seasonably and as responsibly as possible. Their menu is all about freshness and simplicity....
This past weekend I headed to downtown Raleigh for the soft opening of 42 & Lawrence. I've been eagerly awaiting this ever since I heard about it from one of the employees at Larry's Coffee a few months ago. So I kept an eye out on the storefront of 42 & Lawrence, and it felt like forever that the windows were taped up with paper and no actual opening date was advertised. All I knew is that it would be sometime this summer.
At last the time arrived and I darted on down to check it out.
