I don't know about you but I am always looking for a new restaurant to try out especially one that sells different varieties of beer and has an extensive wine list.

"Restaurant" and "Bistro" we are all familiar with which were long ago adopted in the English lexicon, and  which are ably represented by a number of area establishments serving French fare. Well Coquette Brasserie, at North Hills, opened late last month, is the first restaurant in the Triangle to bill itself as a brasserie. Like the bistro, the traditional brasserie is an establishment that serves inexpensive food and drink. Usually a bistro is typically small and by definition serves wine, the brasserie can vary widely in size and if it remains true to the "brasserie" name, which means "brewery" in its original sense, serves BEER! Then it remains to say that it may or may not serve wine, this one does! The exclusively French wine list offers 120 selections, 14 by the glass.

Coquette taps dispense half a dozen beer, all of them Belgian or French. The menu serves up a broad sampling of traditional fare, from rustic cassoulet and coq au vin to lavish seafood platters to bistro classics such as steak frites and charcuterie plates.

The dining room delivers brasserie atmosphere from embossed tin ceiling to black and white tile floors to zinc bar to chanteuse singing on the stereo. It is open for lunch and  dinner daily and Sunday brunch (added this weekend). Breakfast service will follow next week. For more information you can call 789-0606 or www.coquetteraleigh.com.

 

 

Raleigh Durham Airport's new Expansion Opens

by

Posted by Judy Burrell.  Raleigh Durham International Airport (RDU) has opened its long awaited Terminal 2 which replaces Terminal C.  It will make flying less or an arduous ordeal.  Terminal 2 offers plenty of entertainment: Twenty-six shops and restaurants, including 42nd Street Oyster Bar, Carolina Ale House, A Southern Season, Brooks Brothers and Apple iPod.

In the age of post-9/11, heavy airport security, Terminal 2 was designed to move passengers quickly and safely between gates and planes.Architecturally, it's designed for an open feeling, too. Its open interior combines wood trusses with steel and glass walls.

Ticketing kiosks will allow passengers to check in for any airline at a single location. Beneath passenger areas, a state-of-the-art baggage sorting and handling system processes and screens up to 1,600 pieces of luggage an hour.

Passengers will go through a new no-touch security checkpoint that is an alternative to the familiar pat-down – but also is eschewed by many airports for privacy concerns. The $177,000 Whole Body Imager projects radio beams over the surface of a person's body and displays a three-dimensional image of the body, without clothing, on a remote monitor.

Terminal 2 replaces the red-roofed Terminal C, which was built as a hub for American Airlines in 1987 and demolished as its replacement was built.

Blue-walled Terminal A has been renamed Terminal 1, bringing RDU's naming practices in line with other airports. RDU passengers had often been confused by the lack of a Terminal B, which disappeared in the early 1990s when it became an extension of Terminal A.

Terminal 2 will make traveling in and out of RDU a much better experience.

I am not sure what the two have in common except that they both "brew" but Larry's Beans and Big Boss Brewery, two brewers of a different kind, are joining forces Saturday for the Aces and Ates coffee stout release from Big Boss. The Larry's Beans crew will dole out samples of their coffees and Big Boss will reveal the secrets of its success as its hosts this month's brewery tour. Come early for a sample or more before touring the facility where you will learn all about the process of brewing beer. The staff is also raising money for Toys for Tots and letting their beards grow until Dec. 13th when they'll be judged on who's sporting the best-looking whiskers. Patrons who have purchased the $5.00 raffle ticket for their favorite bartender have a chance to win $60.00 worth of Big Boss goodies. The tour is free and is located at 1249-A Wicker Drive off Atlantic Avenue and is being held Saturday at 2 p.m.. But remember....the fundraiser doesn't end till Dec. 13th...when the contest is held.

I'll keep you posted! Check back for the details or better yet go support Toys for Tots and vote for your favorite bartender.
