Our Latest Obsessions: Crepes, Cinema and Cheese

This week, we visited Lucha Tigre, Il Palio and Calavera.


We’re always doing a little bit of everything around town these days. Click through our photos to see what we’ve been up to recently!

Lucha Tigre

Lucha Tigre

Between empanadas and tacos to dumplings and bowls, it’s hard to get bored of the menu at Lucha Tigre. Jessica branched out and order the Lemongrass Chicken Bowl.

Silverspot Cinema


Reserved seating and cupholders big enough for a bottle of wine are just two of the reasons we’re excited about the Silverspot Cinema opening on Friday.

Cooks and Books

Cooks and Books

Ruth Reichl came to Fearrington Village to talk about her new book, “My Kitchen Year.” Chef Colin Bedford prepared recipes from the book, including chicken fricassee and the best chocolate cake Andrea has ever had. No wonder Ruth calls it “the cake that cures everything!”

Il Palio


Il Palio at The Siena has reopened after renovations. Don’t miss the cheese table and wood-fired selections by Chef Teddy Diggs, such as the beefsteak florentine with roasted garlic.

Yogurt Pump


Did you know you can now request a flavor at YoPo?

Parlez-Vous Crepe

Parlez Vous Crepe

It’s that time of the year when everything is pumpkin flavored… including crepes from Parlez-Vous Crepe.

Johnny’s Gone Fishing


On one of the last warm days of the fall, Jessica made her inaugural trip to Johnny’s for coffee.

Calavera Empanada & Tequila Bar


Fear not, lovers of the apple cider cocktail at Calavera! We have it on good authority it will make a return sometime soon. (For now, there’s always nachos!)

B-Side Lounge

Bside Lounge

The B-Side Lounge is still one of the best hidden gems in Carrboro according to Jessica.



Jessica is the Executive Editor for Chapel Hill Magazine. As a 2010 grad of UNC, she's happy to be back in town writing, editing and eating around the Triangle.
