If you looked up fine dining in a dictionary of eating establishments, a picture of Herons would most assuredly be right there. Conveniently located at The Umstead Hotel and Spa, they offer breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch. And for a treat while you are dining, you will get a special opportunity to watch a professional cooking staff prepare all of the wonderful meals that are listed on the menu. The views otherwise are also spectacular as windows fill the area from floor to ceiling. American cooking is redefined by the staff as they use local, seasonal ingredients in a way which brings out the most flavor.

Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen

7307 Tryon Road, Cary, NC 27518
(919) 233-1632
How does this sound? American Southern Cuisine served in an upscale environment. One thing that this place follows through on is their promise to use only the highest quality ingredients to create classic Southern dishes. The environment is pleasantly casual and there is an opportunity to dine outdoors if the weather permits. They have nearly 50 wines by the glass and they take great pains to help you match your wine choice to your food choice. All of the food choices are simply excellent but one category you consistently hear great things about is the seafood. Definitely a five start establishment and a must visit.
