She had an "imperial" set of knockers, as do most of the wait staff. But I go there strictly for the beer.

ok, you guys covered the local tap options pretty good, any suggestions on decent eats in the downtown area that i could walk to from the convention center/marriott hotel?

One of my favorites is the Pit, less than a 10 minute walk

What do you want to spend?
The best Mexican you can find is a place called Dos Taquitos. Their entrees probably run from $14 to $19. Very good stuff, not just combinations of cheese, tortillas, and beans.
If you happen to be a vegetarian there is a place called The Remedy which is quite good.
For good Chinese go to a place called 5-Star.
There's a newer place right up the street from you call Buku. Very good food.
Humble Pie, right near The Pit that Moterbiker mentioned has some great food too. But it's a 'small plate' type of place, so be prepared to order several things off of the menu.
For good Irish food head to Tir Na Nog.
The best tater tots in town are at Busy Bee Cafe (also has a good beer list. not extensive, but a good bottle selection).
Sitti is good Lebanese food.
And lest I forget, The Raleigh Times. Good if you are a hipster, esp.

Raleigh is a foodie destination, believe it or not. There are really lots and lots of good places to eat. These are all right near where you'll be. You could actually just walk up Fayetteville St. and go in just about anywhere.

excellent, thanks for the responses methane and moterbiker. traveling for work so i can eat well. kinda funny, been living in Charlotte for almost 17 years and while I've been to a lot of smaller NC cities and towns I've never been to Raleigh. later.

Has anyone tried Natty Greene's yet? I was there for a North Carolina Brewer's Guild meeting. The beer was good and the food looked pretty good as well, though I didn't have a chance to try anything. Might be time for a GRABASS excursion.

For food downtown, the Pit has some of the best barbecue in the state, Raleigh Times is great for casual dining & good beer selection, the Busy Bee has already been mentioned, and don't forget Poole's Diner. Chef Ashley Christensen has been written up in Food & Wine, Bon Appetite, et al, and is set to be a James Beard Award winner sometime in the near future if things keep going the way they have been. The food is very good, though the beer selection is limited.

Edited to add that Poole's is just across the street from the Convention Center. Definitely give it a try.

Been to Natty Greens a few times, food has been pretty good as well as the service/ My only complaint is they tend to run out of the beer I want to have, I guess they brew the small batch stuff there.

It would be great meet up spot, we have done this with a group of our moto buds and they were great to us, even not hassling us for taking a big table early well before the bulk of our group got there.
