The Wall Street Journal gave the Triangle food scene some attention this month. The conjoined Raleigh-Durham (what the two cities are often called by outside media) is listed in an article, “Six Great Small Cities for Food Lovers.”

The Triangle cities join Sacramento, Calif.; Columbus, Ohio; Spokane, Wash.; Omaha, Neb.; and San Antonio.

Among the restaurants listed in the Raleigh-Durham mention include these in Durham: G2B as a meat-centric gastropub, Nana’s as chef-driven regional Italian, Juju as hipster Asian mashup, Piedmont as next generation farm-to-table and Vin Rouge as old-school bistro. One Raleigh restaurant is included: Poole’s Downtown Diner as a modern Southern restaurant.

About Piedmont, the article says: “Chef Ben Adams applies classical technique to ingredients from North Carolina’s Piedmont region, wowing guests in a small, serene dining room.”
