Hi. Thanks to you guys, my groom and I found two GREAT restaurants in Raleigh, NC, and in our three nights there, we ate in one Twice! They were "Capri," an italian place, and Saraasdi Thai (I think that's the name), also in Raleigh. We cannot say enough about Capri. Going to see the owner in action is enough to bring one back, and then once you eat the food.....
um umm ummm. You who live in the area are SO LUCKY!!
The Thai restaurant was also scrumptious. The Pad Thai was superb, and we loved the curry as well.
We tried a custard place you suggested, and although it was good, we were underwhelmed. We have Kohr's in the philly area, and Anderson's in Buffalo, NY, to compare it to, though, and nothing can compare. The Hayes-Barton Pharmacy for dessert was also a bit of a disappointment. On Saturday nights, they are out of a bunch of desserts. They told us that they bake on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday and put them all out on Wednesday. I guess once we got there, the ones that were left are obviously the least ordered. We were looking forward to the coconut cake "a foot high."
Thank you for all of your help. You were fantastic.
