New doors opening

Along with notable losses (Magnolia Grill), a flurry of interesting-looking new restaurants are opening soon. In hip, happ’n Glenwood South in Raleigh, Krave is moving into the former Red Room tapas location. It will offer bar-ish food and entrees for late-night eaters until 4 a.m., according to Triangle Business Journal. Owners describe it as a “social media-type restaurant” where menus and order-taking will be by iPads. Hope service isn’t via Twitter, but through actual people.

On the complete opposite of the dining spectrum is Oakleaf in Pittsboro’s Chatham Mills. The focus is on local and sustainable ingredients, and I’m pleased the see the sample menu here includes unusual fish like tilefish, one of my favorites. The children’s menu isn’t the usual chicken fingers and fries, either. (What part of a chicken is the finger, anyway?)
