Local Business Spotlight

Where can you enjoy some delicious food while also enjoying the beautiful Raleigh skyline? We all know the answer to this question; it’s Wye Hill!

The owners Sara and Chris moved back to Raleigh, Sara’s hometown, from San Diego in 2017. In May/June of 2019 Wye Hill had opened their doors to the public. Although they were a new restaurant when the pandemic hit, they have continued to be a hot spot in Raleigh. They have recently released their new fall cocktails (we suggest the Ahumado) which pairs well with the pita and beet hummus appetizer!
