We had to eat at the bar because it was rather busy, but that was absolutely our fault for going on the last night of the Groupon. We had high hopes because we had been here for brunch, but we weren't so enamored with dinner. My husband's Buffalo Shrimp Poor Boy was underwhelming. Though the shrimp were large, there were only three per half of the sandwich, and considering the only other toppings were a couple of cucumbers and some lettuce, most bites were rather bread-y. My chicken breast with grits was generously portioned, but the olives overwhelmed the dish and made it excessively salty (and I love both olives and salt!). The grilled cheese with green tomatoes that we shared as an appetizer was definitely the highlight of the meal, but not enough to bring me back any time soon. The service was just okay, which is not unexpected considering how busy it was. We were never brought any bread (though our neighbors at the bar were), and when the bartender/server needed our Groupon number, she actually took my husband's iPhone from him and carried it with her over to the machine rather than just writing down the number. That was an uncomfortable couple of minutes. Glad we tried it, but it won't be my first choice on Cary Street.

Their food is surpassed only by their service. Each time we've been, we have had the most extraordinary servers. Love this restaurant!

From Our Editors

Behind a quirkily colored bright-yellow brick façade, Bonvenu Restaurant & Bar charms visitors with brunch spreads of smoked gouda and ham omelets and sweet-potato waffles, and dinners of lamb roulade or bacon-topped mac 'n' cheese. The eatery projects its commitment to blending disparate cultural influences through its very name, which means "welcome" in Esperanto⎯a constructed universal tongue that draws from Latin, Ukranian, and the secret language that twins speak to each other. The interior adds a whimsical edge to Eisenhower-era diner decor, with two-toned crimson and cream walls dotted with modern art, and oblong globules cast warm light onto a bar top equipped with Belgian ales and flavored martinis. The recipes on the menu take taste buds on globetrotting voyages, with flavors as exotic as Filipino adobo sauce, or as familiar as local foraged mushrooms.
