However, the company recognizes the importance of a downtown Raleigh location and a new spot will be announced in the coming months.

"We're also thrilled to share that our entire buku team will be moving to the new restaurant in Cary, including Executive Chef Amanda Haisley, who has been with us since 2011."

Buku will also open a Wake Forest location in the Spring.
