WEB EXCLUSIVE TGI-TRW (Thank God It’s Triangle Restaurant Week)! This annual, highly anticipated event celebrates and highlights culinary excellence throughout Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill from Jan. 25 to Jan. 31. Over 30 local eateries are offering special deals and fixed prices (tax and gratuity not included) on two- or three-course meals during the week—and don’t worry, they’ve got you covered with take-out options too.

“This winter’s Triangle Restaurant Week celebrates 14 years of culinary excellence in the Triangle,” Triangle Restaurant Week founder Damon Butler says. “We are very excited to be able to offer a takeout version since many people look forward to this yearly event.”

Here are 10 restaurants throughout the Triangle we have on our must-eat list for this week. Try one, or try them all (we applaud you for that in advance)!

For the full list of restaurants participating in Triangle Restaurant Week, visit trirestaurantweek.com.

Anise Pho

222 Glenwood Ave., Raleigh | anisepho.com

For the authentic Vietnamese cuisine of your dreams, stop by Anise Pho on Glenwood. They’re offering three customizable course options (drinks, appetizers and entrees) for $20 for dine-in or takeout. We’re sure no matter what you go with, your meal will be pho-nomenal.

Dos Perros

220 N. Mangum St., Durham | dosperrosrestaurant.com

Dos Perros has a reputation for fresh, contemporary Mexican cuisine and some of the best vegetarian and vegan options in town. For TRW, they’re offering a three-course meal (vegan options included) for takeout. No matter what, get the crispy, cinnamon-y churros with chocolate sauce—they’re to die for!

Coquette Brasserie

4351 The Circle at North Hills St., Raleigh | coquetteraleigh.com

While we can’t be in Paris right now, Coquette’s authentic French cuisine is the next best thing. The TRW menu includes favorites such as truffle mac and cheese, leek and potato soup and the beef bourguignon pictured below. Swing by for a two-course lunch or dinner option any day this week.


2200 W. Main St., Durham | parizadedurham.com

Parizade’s stellar Mediterranean cuisine has been favored by Triangle residents for 26 years now. Clearly, they’ve got something good going on. Grab takeout for dinner, including tasty dishes like baked ricotta gnocchi, green chickpea and mushroom falafel, grilled salmon and more.

The Pit

328 W. Davie St., Raleigh | thepit-raleigh.com

You can’t go wrong with some good ol’ Eastern North Carolina-style whole-hog, pit-cooked barbecue at The Pit in downtown Raleigh’s Warehouse District. Choose from homestyle options like fried green tomatoes and fried chicken for a three-course meal for takeout.

Uninhibited Tapas Bar

3048 Medlin Drive, Raleigh | uninhibitedtapas.com

This global fusion restaurant is offering a plethora of delicious options for a four-course dinner for takeout. It’s almost impossible to choose between the pork shank osso buco tagliatelle with Parmesan or shrimp and grits in bourbon lemon sauce for the entree.

Vic’s Italian Restaurant

4035 Lake Boone Trail, Raleigh; 331 Blake St., Raleigh | vicsitalianrestaurant.com

Old World Italian cuisine and New York-style pizza are the main allure of this classic Raleigh spot. And if that’s not enough to make you immediately drop everything and go get some pasta, every entree comes with garlic knots. You’re welcome.

Wye Hill Kitchen & Brewing

201 S. Boylan Ave., Raleigh | wyehill.com

Wye Hill is already one of our go-to downtown spots, and the TRW dinner menu they’re offering for takeout only seals the deal—think mushroom arancini and short rib sliders. Are you drooling? Because we are.

Capital Club 16

16 W. Martin St., Raleigh | capitalclub16.com

Capital Club 16 is a cutting-edge American restaurant with a German-leaning menu. For TRW, the downtown resto is offering three courses for curbside pickup or takeout with options such as winter vegetable gratin and beer braised pork shoulder; assorted cookies from lucettegrace finish off the meal.

The Morning Times

10 E. Hargett St., Raleigh |morningtimes-raleigh.com

Breakfast for dinner, anyone? Morning Times has you covered with a three-course meal that includes popular dishes like shrimp and grits and Chef Sam’s Brr-Berry Biscuit.
