Here’s a close look at some of our favorites that are close to our downtown Raleigh orthodontics office:

Southern Charred

If you’re craving some mouthwatering BBQ, you can’t go wrong with Southern Charred. We suggest one of its platters. You can pick from pulled pork, sliced brisket, smoked sausage, half chicken, or baby back ribs. All platters come with two sides such as mac and cheese, smashed potatoes, collard greens, and green beans.

Pho Pho Pho

Pho Pho Pho is the perfect place for authentic Vietnamese food. If you happen to be in for lunch, go for a lunch box, which is served with a salad and house pho broth with bean sprouts and scallions. You can fill your lunch box with tasty selections such as pork dumplings, lemongrass chicken, and fried rice.


For a fancy meal after the orthodontist, Vidrio has you covered. Its menu is derived from seasonal ingredients whose flavors nourish the soul. We suggest the roasted organic beet salad, which is full of feta, green onion, and fennel, braised short ribs, wood-fired hanger steak, or charred octopus. Don’t forget the coconut rice pudding, chocolate buttermilk cake, or ricotta beignets for dessert.

Brewery Bhavana

If you’re a beer lover, you’ll love Brewery Bhavana. You can choose from its 40+ beer selections and small plates like the seafood dumplings, duck egg roll, crispy pig ears, or crab rangoon. If you’re feeling hungry, go for a larger plate such as the pork belly rice cakes, lo mein noodles, or rice congee.
