Pre-COVID-19, it was widely agreed that the food scene in the City of Oaks was thriving, doing better than ever thanks to tasty endeavors from a community that’s passionate about good eats and drinks (the accolades range from one of America’s hottest food cities to one of 12 global destinations to travel to thanks to our culinary prowess).

The good news is that Raleigh, N.C., is a place where entrepreneurial spirit and creative grit thrives, a place where the community collaborates for the greater good and where a people-first mindset has created such a high quality of life and a fantastic place to visit.
