Scott Crawford hosts Steve Palmer at Crawford & Son
Dec. 15, 5 p.m.
618 North Person Street, Raleigh
Steve Palmer’s new book, Say Grace: How the Restaurant Business Saved My Life, chronicles the restaurateur’s journey in sobriety in a substance-heavy industry. At this warm Sunday-style supper, Palmer joins Scott Crawford for a meal and conversation. The menu includes spirit-free cocktails, and tickets come with a signed copy of the book. All proceeds go to Ben’s Friends, a food-and-beverage support group for those struggling with addiction.
Open Now: Deli Edison
630 Weaver Dairy Road, Chapel Hill
On Monday, the new fast-casual dining concept from Dan Obusan, Sam Suchoff, and Pete Wagner opened in the former Bagel Bar space in Chapel Hill. Don’t worry: In this friendly, checkered-floor eatery, you can still grab a fresh bagel on the go, alongside deli-style sandwiches, hot dogs, pizza, and roasted veggies.
Open for Lunch: Poole’side Pies
428 South McDowell Street, Raleigh
What’s for lunch? Starting last week, you can count a slice of Ashley Christensen’s pizza as a weekday option. Poole’side, which has only served dinner since it opened in September, is now open from 11:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m. Wednesday through Friday. Think pizza, but also a lunch menu with hearty, inventive features like a kale-and-tomato soup and open-faced meatball sandwiches.
