{raleigh restaurant week}

Raleigh friends, it's restaurant week here in the Oak City! It's one of my favorite times to discover new restaurants and enjoy some of our favorites as well. We will be attending other activities this weekend, but I am looking forward to getting out tomorrow night to partake in the yum that is going down this week. 

It's tough to choose (especially when you are hungry) where to make your first reservation. The Restaurant Week webpage helps navigate your palette based on whether you are in Raleigh, Durham or Chapel Hill. Here you can find all types of options broken out by genre of food type. If you're anything like me, it all appeals to you! 

Tomorrow night, we are looking to give Sitti another go. My husband is a very "steak and potatoes" type of guy, so getting him to try "different foods" can always be an interesting experience ;-)  We last tried Sitti a few years ago and I loved it -- the Mr...not so much. He's decided to be open minded and give it another go. It's just $20 a head and the menu looks great.
