25 Best Dishes

Rosewater Mussels

We vetted some of Raleigh’s top industry foodies and ate our way through the town (it’s a tough job, but someone had to do it…) to give you the top 25 dishes in the City of Oaks. On the list, you’ll find popular plates you’ve most likely tried yourself a time or two, plus some best-kept secrets that you’re definitely going to want to get your hands on ASAP. Fork up, Raleigh!

What is it? Where is it? Who’s inside? Raleigh Magazine gets the exclusive on who’s coming to Smoky Hollow, a multiphase revitalization project at the northern gateway of Downtown Raleigh. Fronted by the uber-popular Publix, Smoky Hollow consists of Peace Raleigh Apartments, The Line apartments and 421 N. Harrington St. office building campus, with a plethora of ground-floor restaurants and retail opening soon—and we give you the scoop!

We sat down with Chief Estella D. Patterson, who was sworn in as Raleigh’s 30th police chief Aug. 12, to ask her about her vision for Raleigh as “the safest city,” community-based policing, her first impression of our City of Oaks and more.

Leafy Love

Houseplant Hippie

Plants certainly grew on us over the past year—an innate response to surrounding ourselves with life when chaos, sickness and what felt like end times was all around—and to keep our safe sanctuaries filled with beauty, clean energy and vibrancy. In this plant-tastic plant feature, we round up sprouted shops, apps, names and more. 

Cultural Comeback

Despite the hardships of the last year for live productions and the arts, local production organizations both large and small pivoted and adapted their operations, putting the “show must go on” sentiment to the ultimate test—from streaming to shifting (think literal move) to airing live shows and more. Now, the arts are back, and there’s tons of great shows to add to your calendar.
