Life is Good - @ Vita Vite Art Gallery + Wine Bar

Lindsay Rice is taking her love of wine and art to downtown Raleigh with Vita Vite, a wine bar and art gallery, in the warehouse district on W. Hargett Street. The name Vita Vite comes from the Italian words for 'life' and 'vine'. Oh yes, life is always better with wine!

While wine and art can be intimidating for some, Rice has created an environment of comfortable approach-ability for both at this new Wine and Art Bar. The 5,600 square foot former warehouse was converted into a rustic wine bar with fireplaces and comfortable couches overlooking art from 10 local and regional artists. All art is available for purchase and Rice feels the setup is helpful to imagine what the art would look like in your own home. (And the wine will influence the buying persuasion.)

The rustic yet modern vibe is in every detail of the space from the metal and iron accents to the reclaimed bar wood and building's original beams in full display.

The wine bar will serve 20 wines and 6 craft beers. The list consists of nice qualities at reasonable prices. Seasonal selections will be available. Local craft beers are also served. Cheese plates and other small food options will become available in the near future.

And if you want to do some shopping, Rice has gathered a nice collection of retail food items including Greek and Spanish extra virgin olive oils, hot sauce, Bloody Mary mix, flatbread crackers, cookies, pickles, cookbooks and more from family run, Southern businesses.

There's also an event space (1,200 sq.ft.) in the back that's perfect for private events or receptions for parties up to 80 people. The new kitchen is equipped for caterers.

Life is good! Come relax and enjoy wine and art at Vita Vite.

Time for a Repeat Visit - ORO Restaurant & Lounge located in the heart of Downtown Raleigh, is a fun, chic, and casual restaurant in the PNC Building at the corner of Martin and Wilmington Streets. Rather than offering individual starters and main courses, ORO serves dishes that are designed for sharing among friends and are brought to the table steadily and continuously throughout the meal. Downtown Raleigh residents Christopher Hylton and Cara Zalcberg Hylton opened ORO in the spring of 2012 proudly featuring a variety of small plates and signature dishes including options to satisfy all cravings. Try ORO again or for the first time. Click Here for menu. Website.

Yay! It's on the List...Provenance - We've been waiting and waiting. They say good things come to those that wait. And this is going to be good! Teddy Klopf's Provenance Restaurant on the first floor of the new Skyhouse luxury apartment building on East Martin Street in downtown Raleigh is opening...any day now. Klopf describes the restaurant as "refined new Southern cuisine in a contemporary, casual setting." He previously worked at McCrady's in Charleston, S.C., and The Umstead Hotel and Spa in Cary. Provenance is a sense of place... what it means to be from North Carolina and is finally opening just in time for Triangle Restaurant Week. Can't wait to try it! Website.

Fairly New in Town - Faire a "surf and turf" restaurant located in Raleigh's Cameron Village would be only scratching the surface. Their commitment to cooking with fresh, locally-influenced ingredients means the food is anything but standard. It's "new American" dining with a local flair. From seasonal oyster appetizers to crab cake-topped salads to NY strip steaks, the menu is filled with delectable options to suit any appetite. A perfect opportunity to try Faire!

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
