I've been here for a couple months now just north of the city. I can't find a decent loaf of crusty bread or a decent cut of meat. I've been to WF and the Meat House but were disappointed by both. The meat at WF is mostly flavorless and a lot of the stuff in the meat case is brick red from being in there too long.
I bought a steak at TMH on Friday about noon and took it out of the fridge on Saturday around 5pm to let it come to room temp before I grilled it and it had already gone bad! How does that happen?
I found a decent seafood place on Capital down past 440, but for me its a half hour ride each way for a piece of fish. I drive it though because I have no choice.
Any butcher shops (Thick cut bone in t-bones or rib eyes) or beef farms?
Any artesian bread shops (Thick crust, big holes in the middle, great for dragging thru XVO)?
Any Sushi quality seafood in North Raleigh?
