Greg Cox of the N&O announced his top 20 restaurants in the Triangle today. No big surprises, except he really listed 30 when including his top newcomers and best bargains. He also named Fins his restaurant of the year.
Some comments: Two Urban Food Group restaurants on the list, with Frazier’s and Vivace. Seven out of the top 20 are in Raleigh, six are in Durham. five in Chapel Hill, and one each for Cary and Morrisville. Only one of the top newcomers or bargains, however, are in Raleigh.
Finally, I found it interesting that he listed his top choices alphabetically, except for Jujube, which he listed last. Last minute change of thoughts? Overlooked something so obvious? Who knows?
List after the break.
