I just received an email that The Mint has opened on Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh. Housed in an old bank (with the vault serving as an entryway), The Mint appears to be an old-school, protein-heavy restaurant with a contemporary twist. Heading up The Mint’s kitchen is chef Jeremy Clayman, formerly of the Peninsula Grill in Charleston.
Dinner and dessert menus are now available online, although the rest of The Mint’s website is not overly functional yet. I’ve attached some photos that were included in the email below the break, and the space certainly looks quite amazing, featuring a spiral staircase to an upstairs bar area.
