Plates keeps it simple with color, flavor in downtown Raleigh

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- Downtown Raleigh Restaurant Week begins Monday where you can try 40 different restaurants on a price-fixed menu.

On Friday, we take you to Plates Neighborhood Kitchen in the heart of Raleigh's Glenwood South.

"We want to kind of push the envelope of the normal, traditional Southern fare, and we want to have fun doing it," said Jake Wood, chef at Plates.

Plates has been focusing on sourcing food locally, Wood said.

The result, Wood said, is "fun dishes, flavorful, colorful dishes."

You can find Plates at 301 Glenwood Ave. Suite 100, Raleigh.
