The idea behind The National is simple: to provide a casual neighborhood gathering spot reminiscent of the bars and cafés they've enjoyed on travels to Europe. Chef Peter Dale's Mediterranean inspired food and wine is served for lunch and dinner in the dining room and throughout the day at the bar…

One of our absolute favorites! They have amazing turmeric lattes and fantastic wine to go alongside some amazing Mediterranean-ish food.

I recommend reservations if you plan to dine in, but they do take out. (One of my favorite restaurants for dinner.)

An effortlessly cool bistro on the downtown outskirts, favored for its daily changing, eclectic menu that jumps from roasted monkfish to roasted chicken on jeweled Carolina Gold rice with dried apricot, pistachio, currants, schug hot sauce, yogurt, cucumber, marinated onion and cilantro (got it?)…
