Updated: The Best Raleigh-Durham Restaurants
Posted by Charlie Harris

When we envision the Raleigh-Durham area, we think of lush rolling hills, tobacco fields, rampant college basketball fanaticism, Cheerwine out of the bottle, and of course, fantastic Carolina cuisine. Some of the country's best barbecue and Southern cooking can be found at the likes of iconic restaurants such as Clyde Cooper's and Mama Dip's. The region is also producing some of America's most dynamic and well-regarded chefs, including Andrea Reusing of Chapel Hill's Lantern (winner of the James Beard Foundation's Best Chef: Southeast in 2011), and Ashley Christensen of Poole's Diner in Raleigh, who recently threw down with Bobbly Flay on Iron Chef. Christensen just recently opened two adjoining casual Raleigh restaurants,  Beasley's Chicken and Honey and Chuck's. We've revised and updated our list of the Top 100 Raleigh-Durham restaurants.

Among the new additions to our list are Acme Food & Beverage Co., An, Bella Mia, Blu Seafood and Bar, Coquette, Federal, Kitchen, Glasshalffull, Mez, Mint, Neal's Deli, Queen of Sheba and Revolution
