Restaurant Review Roulette: Angelina’s Kitchen

March 10, 2010

No one should say that Greg Cox doesn’t seek out places in the “hinterlands” when he reviews restaurants for the News & Observer.  Last week he hit Mambo Italiano in Apex.  This week, he goes even more remote — all the way to Pittsboro! — with Angelina’s Kitchen.  Now I’ve heard some good things about this place.  It’s small, and it focuses on Greek food with an occasional southwestern dish thrown in.  But this place is adamant about sourcing its ingredients from local farms, and that includes beef and poultry.  Heck, they even rave about the peppers one nearby farmer grows.  The menu is limited, but there are always a handful of daily specials.

So, what’s Mr. Cox going to award to Angelina’s Kitchen?  This is another restaurant that I haven’t visited, but I’m guessing its locavore bent will gain it at least an additional half star.  So here are this week’s odds:

4.5 to 5 stars — 1,000 to 1

4 stars — 20 to 1

3.5 stars — 5 to 2

3 stars — 2 to 1

2.5 stars — 5 to 1

2 stars — 10 to 1

1 to 1.5 stars — 75 to 1

I might be a little late to post the results here, as I’ll be out of town, but I’ll do my best.  What do you think about Angelina’s Kitchen?  And how many of you have actually visited it?
