The other night, my parents and brother and I went to Beasley's and then Fox's and neither disappointed. We're already huge fans of Poole's and Ashley Christensen is, as the world already knows, a genius/supa cool. Although now I'm left wondering who Beasley and Fox and Poole (and Chuck) are.
I ordered heirloom tomatoes, slaw with malt dressing, roasted beets and buttermilk biscuits. I proceeded to save the beets for lunch the next day and essentially create a good 'ol 'mater biscuit sammich (earl of sandwich level 2 in the house) with a side of slaw.
Then, I sipped my parents' whiskey on the rocks until I could take no more and retreated to my glass of red wine. Baby steps.
Raleigh's a neat place and my folks are neat people. I think I'll hang out with both for a while.
