Taverna Agora was a landmark on Raleigh’s Glenwood Avenue, North, for years. The popular restaurant acquired a reputation for serving fine Greek cuisine at a reasonable price. In recent months, Taverna Agora has made a move from its old location and is now part of the city’s vibrant downtown dining scene at 326 Hillsborough Street.
Upon entry, diners are immediately greeted with the word Opa! right on the door handle. Inside, there’s ample seating as well as a large bar area. If the weather’s right, guests can enjoy al fresco dining upstairs. The spacious upper dining area is reminiscent of dining in Greece. Beautiful plants, grapevine covered lattice, and pretty statuary adorn the roof-top patio providing the perfect ambiance for enjoying contemporary Mediterranean cuisine.
