North Carolina has always provided plenty of fertile ground for farmers and gamekeepers. Now, restaurant owners and chefs are taking advantage of what the land has to offer with these top restaurants.
Lantern has garnered national recognition for its dedication to local ingredients, its commitment to using green energy, and the exceptional high quality of the food. Located on Chapel Hill’s main street, Lantern may appear to blend in with the rest of restaurants – but not once you try the food. The general theme is Asian food from across the region. However, you can experience local touches from all of the organic ingredients, be it greens from nearby farms or fish from the North Carolina coast. Beyond lunch and dinner, the cocktail and dessert menus are also well worth a look.
