The Rockford Reopens

Posted By on Mon, Jun 28, 2010 at 3:18 PM

Jason Howard, owner of Raleigh’s Brooklyn Heights Bar (605 Glenwood Avenue, Raleigh, www.brooklynheightsbar.com) had no official connection to the nearby bar and restaurant, The Rockford (320 ½ Glenwood Avenue, Raleigh). A loyal patron, Howard ate lunch at The Rockford at least once a week and was among the masses who mourned the 15-year-old establishment’s closing in early April. Unlike those who called out for The Rockford’s reopening on venues like Facebook with a “Save the Rockford” group, Howard hollered in a different way. Two days after the restaurant’s close, he learned the name of former Rockford owner, Michael D’Amelio, parked...

A Visit to the Brand-New Scratch Artisan Bakery

Posted By on Thu, Jun 10, 2010 at 3:39 PM

As one of pie wizard Phoebe Lawless' many acolytes, I've been hungrily awaiting the opening of her new shop, on Orange Street in downtown Durham. No more getting up early and driving to the Durham Farmer's Market on Saturday morning just to grab the last Shaker lemon pie! I found Lawless behind the counter at Scratch Artisan Bakery on Thursday afternoon, looking tired but happy as she cut a slice of the above-mentioned Shaker lemon pie. How's business, I asked? "It's been unpredictable, but I'm not complaining," Lawless said, adding that she's been doing a lot of sales in coffee...
