The Triangle's food community continues to thrive and expand, as does its national acclaim. New spots seem to open every week, from pricey downtown digs to cheap strip mall eateries. National lists continue to broadcast the hottest spots in the area, while features in The New York Times and the like consistently regard the area with the glee of a naïve discoverer.
