Poole’s Diner

$$$$
American  in  Raleigh
Johnny Autry

Technically, Poole’s is a diner. Really though, it’s more like a cross between the cleanest diner you’ve ever seen and a dark Manhattan bar from the Mad Men era. The red leather banquettes and barstools make it feel more appropriate for a nice dinner with someone you like, and dishes like watermelon salad and risotto make it clear that it’s not the place to come in your classic diner uniform of pajamas for a hungover breakfast. Get the macaroni au gratin, but other than that, the chalkboard menu changes daily and is always full of things we want to eat. Just make sure you don’t overlook the vegetables - they never taste overly healthy and are usually some of the most creative dishes here.
