Raleigh - best in downtown?

LulusMom | Jan 27, 2014 07:48 AM

Gasp inducing, I know, but my husband and I haven't spent a night together without Lulu since she was a baby. I'm thinking (hoping!) I can talk the babysitter into an overnight and my husband thought it might be fun to go to Raleigh since we seldom get to eat there. I recently went with a friend to Buku (hi friend!) and enjoyed it very much and noticed that there were a few hotels down that way. And that Poole's is nearby. Is Poole's the way to go? We'd like something with amazing food, a fun atmosphere, not stuffy. I don't eat pork or much other red meat. Places we love for special nights out are Vin Rouge, Elaine's, Mateo (and other, but you get the idea). I'd love to hear what people think they'd do, if they were us. Thanks very much in advance!

Vin Rouge,
Elaine's On Franklin,
