Day 32–A Locavore’s Lunch–18 Seaboard

I love restaurants that let you know up front where your food is coming from. 18 Seaboard in Raleigh is a higher end restaurant with a committment to featuring local and North Carolina food, especially seafood, cheese and beef. I’m getting so used to asking servers (who typically have to ask someone else), where the food comes from, so it’s nice to have it laid out there on the menu. I did find on a recent visit, that the staff are pretty familiar with where the menu sources from as well. How refreshing!

If you’re on a budget, go at lunch–you’ll get many of the same entrees for a reduced price. I had a great pasta dish with gemelli pasta, roasted butternut squash and fresh Pamlico Sound shrimp. So delicious and not heavy at all. I think I might be able to replicate this at home! Other entrees included fresh catfish and greens and short rib stuffed ravioli (which looked terrific).

18 Seaboard is by William Peace University in downtown Raleigh and is open for lunch Mon-Fri and dinner every night but Monday. You can find their menu at www.18seaboard.com
