Mandolin — Coming to Raleigh

Wow. A new chef-driven restaurant is about to open in Raleigh, and I’m really excited by it. Mandolin is the name of Chef Sean Fowler’s establishment, located at the intersection of Oberlin and Fairview in Raleigh’s Five Points neighborhood.

This is what I know about Mandolin: nothing. Well, I’ve seen their menu, which is Southern-inspired. I’ve looked at their website. But I know nothing about Sean Fowler. Or any of the staff. Even when a menu looks promising, as this one does, I reserve judgment until I taste the food. But for some reason, I just like the vibe that these folks have created. I really WANT to taste this food. And based on the Open Table reservation system, it looks like they open next Tuesday.

Raleigh needs more of these type of restaurants. I can’t wait to try it.

    The menu really excites me especially in this particular area. I’m trying to figure out where this is in relation to Nofo and Lilly’s, but he’s really setting up in a nice area. Sorta like how Nana’s has set itself up in Durham. Something about this place reminds me of Four Square, but what is equally exciting is that they offer a “bar menu” which serves equally hearty fare for smaller budgets so it is open to anyone. There aren’t too many places that offer two distinct menus in that manner.

    I’ve heard good things about Mandolin, but never tried it. Have you been to Joel Lane’s on Glenwood? They have a cool atmosphere too.
