As summer approaches and a slew of new restaurants have begun to open their doors, we’ve been tracking some of the hottest dining options in the Triangle. Unlike our other maps, this map constantly tracks some of the newest (and hottest) restaurants, bars, and cafes that have recently opened (or in some cases re-opened after pandemic closures). Given the clear struggles of the restaurant industry during the Covid-19 pandemic some of these spots may have been open longer than others, but all are new within the past year.
Have a lead on a soon-to-open or brand new spot? Send us a tip.
