I moved to the Triangle in 2006 with my wife after spending 14 years in New York City. We moved to North Carolina to be closer to family. My advice to someone moving to the Triangle is to spend time in the neighborhood you plan to live in before buying a home. Check for the closest grocery store, shopping centers, etc.

The Urban Food Group is a group of locally owned restaurants with fresh, whole, and local ingredients. We are committed to giving our guests a first class experience of food, service, and atmosphere. We want our guests to keep coming back!  Our restaurants include:

Coquette Brasserie   919-789-0606  Vivace   919-787-7747

4351 The Circle at North Hills                 4209 Lassiter Mill Rd, Suite 115

Raleigh, NC  27607                                       Raleigh, NC  27609

Chow   919-841-4995                        Vivace   704-370-7755

8311 Creedmoor Road                        1100 Metropolitan Avenue, Suite 100

Raleigh, NC  27613                               Charlotte, NC  28204

I love to give back to our community by being involved in The Raleigh Roundup, March of Dimes Benefit, A Taste of Hope, and Cystic Fibrosis Master Chefs.

My top tip for success is mean what you say and do what you say you are going to do. My favorite thing to do in the triangle is to golf. My favorite restaurant is Coquette and my favorite item on the menu is the steak sandwich.
