Best power-broker dining spot in Raleigh 

Mecca Restaurant

13 East Martin Street, Raleigh

(919) 832-5714

Mecca, of course, is a venerable Raleigh institution; at eighty-six, it's by far the oldest restaurant in downtown Raleigh, and one of the few places seemingly untouched by downtown's steel-and-glass revitalization. And, if you're in Raleigh's political scene, there's a good chance you have lunch there on the reg. Current and former elected officials, aides, operatives, city officials, journalists, big-shot lawyers (Mecca is across the street from the 301 Fayetteville building, which houses powerhouse law firm Parker Poe), and PR folks—they're all there, stuffed into the too-small booths, eating fish sandwiches and burgers and plotting the future of the state and city.
