Food Chain is a restaurant series the Independent began in November 2006. We've gone to the most seasoned navigators possible—chefs at local restaurants—and asked, "Where do you like to go out to eat on your night off?" Each article profiles a chef, reviews his or her food, and then asks that chef to recommend the next restaurant in the chain. We hop from meal to meal across the Triangle to uncover the best dishes—and not necessarily the most expensive. Each month you'll find a new installment, a new addition to your restaurant treasure trove.
