$1000 to spend on food - in Raleigh

I am lucky enough to be great friends with someone who recently won $1000 gift certificate and she wants to share it with me!!!! Well, and her husband, and our other best friend with her husband too. So, that makes 5 of us.

The catch is that it has to spent in restaurants, in Raleigh - on food only. It doesn't cover alcohol purchases....otherwise this surely would not be a topic!!

My usual Raleigh haunts are generally cheap dives (I mean that in the nicest way), so I'm a bit at a loss for upscale Raleigh dining. If we were able to expand to Durham or Chapel Hill, I have my upscale faves.

I am considered to be the resident "foodie" in the group so they are looking to me for picking the spot.

So, for 5 people, and $1000 in food in Raleigh - where would you go?

Oh, and you can 86 Second Empire immediately. After a tremendously rude and unfortunate experience there on Christmas Eve in 2002, I will NEVER go back.
