Five on Friday: Raleigh Restaurant Week

Restaurant Week is one of my favorite weeks - I love trying new restaurants in the area and this is a perfect excuse to do exactly that!

Raleigh's Restaurant Week is just around the corner, January 26th through February 1st, so Five on Friday is dedicated to a few of the restaurants that I hope to try over the next few days. I have also included a sneak peak of their Restaurant Week menus.

Driftwood Southern Kitchen: "Neighborhood Dining...Southern Kitchen!" This sounds like my kind of place.
Plates Neighborhood Kitchen: "Enjoy some of our International Dishes combined with our regional Southern flavors." I have been dying to try Plates because I've heard and read nothing but fabulous reviews about the food and ambiance.
Little Hen: "We strongly believe in supporting local farms and putting onto your plate what is fresh, seasonal, and as far as possible, devoid of all that mass production as created." A farm to table restaurant that works closely with our local farmers + it is just a few minutes away from our home (double bonus).
Piedmont Restaurant: "Finding inspiration in the produce, farms and ranches of Piedmont region of North Carolina." Recently, we have discovered a variety of great restaurants in Durham and I am hoping to add this one to the list.
Totopos Street Food and Tequila: "With a menu focused on the capital city's {Mexico City} diverse street foods, Totopos honors the many culinary influences that have converged over hundreds of years." This is a bit outside of my comfort zone when it comes to restaurant selections but I am intrigued.
Will you be trying any new restaurants during Raleigh's Restaurant Week? If so, I would love to hear which ones are on your list. Happy Friday!
