Raleigh’s Best Restaurant Reflects Beloved Aspects of the City

Whether you’re visiting Raleigh for the weekend, or you’ve lived here for decades, you’ll never run out of things to do in Raleigh, North Carolina. With an abundance of outdoorsy options, educational opportunities, local shops, and culinary delights, Raleigh truly offers something for everyone. After you work up an appetite strolling around the capitol city’s parks, museums, and shopping areas, end your day with dinner and drinks at one of Raleigh’s best restaurants.

Margaux’s in Brennan Station is often cited as one of the best restaurants in Raleigh. In many ways, Margaux’s is actually a microcosm of the capitol city, since the restaurant embodies all the most appealing parts of Raleigh:

  • Southern + International—As a Southern city with global appeal, Raleigh has maintained its soulful Southern charm while evolving to embrace diverse cultures and people from around the world. Similarly, Margaux’s blends Southern staples with international flavors to create delicious dishes that you won’t find anywhere else.
  • Outdoorsy—If you enjoy Raleigh’s vast selection of parks, greenways, golf courses, and outdoor activities, you’ll love dining al fresco on Margaux’s landscaped, curated patio. When you make reservations for dinner in our outdoor dining area, you can relish an upscale meal without missing out on a moment of Raleigh’s natural beauty.
  • Universally appealing—Like Raleigh as a whole, Margaux’s is universally appealing without being generic. Margaux’s chefs change the menu daily and always feature dishes that appeal to a variety of tastes. Diners with dietary restrictions or food sensitivities can look for menu items marked gluten-free (GF), dairy-free (DF), vegetarian (V), vegan (VG), while those looking to avoid nuts should pay attention to dishes marked with (N), indicating that the dish contains nuts.
  • Artsy—After you finish appreciating the stunning artwork at the North Carolina Museum of Art, Contemporary Art Museum, First Friday, or a local art gallery, head to Margaux’s and admire featured artwork by local artists while you enjoy dinner and drinks.
  • Friendly—Raleigh is brimming with friendly people who are eager to help a stranger or strike up a conversation on the sidewalk, and that aspect of Southern Hospitality is especially prevalent at Margaux’s. Our servers and staff love getting to know Margaux’s regulars and newcomers alike, and we’re always happy to talk things out and help you with the big decisions, like whether you should order the Laotian Eggplant Stir Fry or the Blackened Halibut.
  • Eclectic—People often use the word eclectic to describe places that just can’t be summarized in a single word, so it’s a fitting description for both Raleigh and Margaux’s. Eclectic tends to mean different things to different people, so whatever eclectic means to you—whether it’s unique, funky, open-minded, or diverse—it most likely describes Margaux’s. If you aren’t sure exactly what eclectic means to you, gather your loved ones together and make reservations for dinner at Margaux’s so you can find out in person!

As one of Raleigh’s best restaurants for more than three decades, Margaux’s reflects many of the most appealing aspects of the City of Oaks. At Margaux’s, we embrace all the best parts of Southern Hospitality while exuding the energetic excitement of a bustling metropolis, so you know you’re going to have a great night anytime you come to Margaux’s. And just as you’ll never run out of things to do in Raleigh, you’ll never run out of dishes to try at Margaux’s. Our chefs are always coming up with new recipes, and with our daily changing menu, you could dine with us every night without eating the same dish twice.
