Academy Street Bistro

academystbistroThis is the second post of a series highlighting places Liz and I like to go eat and hang out. In some way they’ve impressed us with their food, their service and/or ambiance.

Liz and I visited Academy Street Bistro in downtown Cary last month, on our wedding anniversary. It happened to fall during the Triangle restaurant week, where restaurants all over the triangle offer special fixed price 3 course meals.

There is indoor and outdoor seating available and the weekday evening we were there had live music outside.

The staff were fantastic and we really appreciated getting to chat with Chef Brian a couple of times during our meal. They really looked after us and made our anniversary special.

The food was amazing. I especially enjoyed the duck salad (pictured). It’s hard to find duck on a menu here in the states, never mind cooked to perfection.

I also took advantage of the wine pairing with each course which I highly recommend.

For our budget, it’s a little on the expensive side for regular dining, but for special occasions or random splurges we will definitely be back to Academy Street Bistro.


Panther Creek High School Marching Band

Our oldest boy, Nathan, is going into 9th grade this year at Panther Creek High School. He has also signed the family up to a grueling Marching Band schedule (starting in July). It’s going to be hard work, but I’m pretty excited about this.
