Rosewater opens today in North Hills, the first in Raleigh from a celebrated Triangle restauranteur

A “transporting oasis” of a bistro opens today in North Hills.

Rosewater Kitchen & Bar is from noted restaurateur Giorgios Bakatsias and it’s the first for The Giorgios Hospitality Group in Raleigh.

Other restaurants by the group in Chapel Hill and Durham include ParizadeVin Rouge and Bin 54, INDY Week says

The vibe: Described as a “lush and romantic,” Rosewater’s aesthetic includes flowering plants and a trellis, rose-gold light fixtures in a “European style neighborhood bistro.” 

The 110-seat restaurant includes a garden room, a dining room, bar and outdoor patio. 

Where to find it and when to go: Rosewater is at 110 Park at North Hills and is now serving dinner Monday through Saturday and brunch on Saturdays and Sundays (10 a.m.-3 p.m.). The release said they’ll eventually open for breakfast and lunch.

What to get: The menu includes rotisserie and seafood options as well as vegan and gluten-free offerings. There’s an emphasis on local and seasonal, including Union Special bread pastries at brunch. 

The dinner menu includes a generous variety of shared plates, including this carrot harissa hummus.

Now Open: A BBQ food truck with a give-back mission 
A new BBQ food truck that officially opened Monday has a bigger purpose than just good food.

When you get a food truck meal at Also With ‘Cue, they feed BBQ sandwiches to people experiencing food insecurity.

And Also With 'Cue is set up 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday through Friday in Downtown Raleigh at the corner of Edenton & McDowell streets in the parking lot of First Baptist Church Raleigh (pro tip: you can park there if you’re not walking).

Some of the menu items include a pulled pork sandwich, ribs, wings, pimento cheese sandwiches and aged cheddar biscuits, plus southern sides like BBQ beans, Mac n' cheese and slaw.

How it works: For every plate purchased, a meal goes to someone in need, working with First Baptist's clothing closet and community partners.
