Driftwood Southern Kitchen

Hey Raleigh, have you been to Driftwood Southern Kitchen yet? Well you should! In case you have not, Driftwood is located in Lafayette Village, off Falls of Neuse in North Raleigh. Driftwood offers southern cuisine at its finest, a fully stocked bar, seating at the open kitchen, big tables, semi-private spaces AND outdoor seating. The menu rotates with seasonal new dishes while maintaining some of their favorite/best-sellers. Small plates are nice options for sharing and the mains come in small or regular size portions.

Stop in for a drink and a snack at the bar or make plans for a large group lunch or dinner celebration. Some of my favorite small plates include the Fried Green Tomatoes, House Pimiento Cheese and the Wings! The pulled pork shoulder main is absolutely delicious. Rosemary Tater Tots with crushed garlic or Mac and Cheese make for a nice side. I haven't explored the desserts yet, but I'm sure they're pretty amazing.

I particularly like the way they present their food. Even a cup of coffee is a treat to order! Atmosphere is friendly and feels like some of the places you would find in downtown Raleigh. Location is nice, especially with good weather on the horizon. You can eat lunch or dinner and then wander around with lots of great little shops and boutiques around Lafayette Village.

If you enjoy Southern cuisine and a rustic, farmhouse atmosphere, Driftwood is the place. There are daily drink specials for every day of the week! So, what are you waiting for? ;-)
