ISO Chapel Hill Dinner Spot

klmonline | Sep 17, 2007 04:03 PM

Here's yet another post looking for suggestions from the local hounds. My dad and his wife are coming into Chapel Hill for a night and we are going to meet them for dinner. They will have been driving a lot that day, so I don't want to get in the car and take them back over to the Raleigh/Cary area I know better. I need some Chapel Hill expertise, and you are the folks to deliver it!

I'm going to throw you a laundry list of criteria to help you help me find the perfect place to meet everybody's preferences in our dining group.


1) In or very close to CH. No significant driving (especially since it's a Friday evening).

2) Mildly upscale is okay, but nothing "coat-and-tie" dressy.

3) No place where the only good thing to eat is beef dishes or barbequed pork. One of our party prefers chicken/fish/veggies to beef and pork.

4) Must allow for table conversation. No noisy pub-dives, takeouts, or counter dining.

5) Ethnic foods are highly prized. Almost any culture, but authentic native style... Not fusion places such as Jujube or Lantern (based on what I infer from their menus).

Rule 6: THERE IS NO........................................rule six!

7) One of our party is not a fan of Thai food (dock that person several million points!!!)

Okay, gang. Work your magic! :)

Dang, if only Queen of Sheba was still open. We all loved that dining experience the last time they drove through town.
