Umstead (Cary) bar and food

This is obviously the place for wealthy local singles, both young and old(er) as well as guests of this 4 -star hotel. We saw a very famous sports figure there. Elegant and yet comfortable surroundings that look out upon their patio and lake. An extensive menu for a "bar" as they offered starters, soups, salads and entrees. This Saturday night they had a piano player singing unobtrusively in the corner. We tried the tasso ham doughnuts - be sure and eat the ham with the doughnuts and dip in the cilantro cream or else it will seem rather bland. Salmon tartare was ok but could have used a bit more zip or acid. I liked the complimentary starter of nuts and olives.
