One of the benefits of living in the Triangle region of North Carolina is the plentiful choices for dining out.
From wonderful chain restaurants like The Melting Pot in Durham (and in Raleigh) to Raleigh hot spot Poole’s Diner, if there’s one thing the Triangle is not short on, it’s the multitude of options of where to eat when you just don’t feel like cooking.
We’ve written about this subject a few times already with our piece on why we vote Raleigh the tastiest town, our selections for where to bring your valentine, and dining in Durham as told by our own Michael Sullivan. This month as part of our series of “Branch Bits”, Mark Parker of our Fonville Morisey Stonehenge office wanted to share his “review” of Margaux’s in North Raleigh.
Margaux’s is located at 8111 Creedmoor Rd. Specializing in dishes with an Asian, French, seafood, and southern flair, the menu is constantly changing based on what is available freshest. As a matter of fact, how about this for a seasonal dish – “Crispy First of the Season Soft Shell Crab with Buttermilk Pancake Smoked Bacon Bread Pudding AND Green Tomato Ranch”? We have no idea what “green tomato ranch” is but it all sounds delicious, doesn’t it? We venture to guess your mouth is watering as you read that as much as ours was typing it!
Margaux’s official website describes their cuisine as -
“The Perfect Fusion of a High-Energy Metropolis and Soulful Southern Hospitality. You’ll say it’s Downright Awesome!”
With dishes like the one described above, who can disagree?
Mark Parker and his family frequently visit Margaux’s and he had this to say about his experience -
I recently visited a locally-owned restaurant establishment close to where we live and work, and I wanted to express my appreciation of a simply fantastic dining experience that I have had there over and over again. At Margaux’s Restaurant in Raleigh their menu changes with the seasons, their customer service is top notch and the ambience is progressive. They’ve been providing a flavorful dining experience for over 20 years. I recommend that you go and be a part of it so that you too can understand why they still stand strong after all these years.
My appreciation to everyone at Margaux’s Restaurant. I look forward to my next return!
Well, there you have it! If you haven’t had an opportunity to check out Margaux’s for yourself, we hope you will soon and come on back to tell us all about it.
What’s your favorite restaurant in the North Raleigh/Stonehenge area? We’d love to hear about that too. Please leave a comment below.
Special thanks to Mark Parker for providing his “review” of Margaux’s for The Faces of Fonville!
