My gentleman and I try to have a fancy date night as often as we can. It is important for us to get out of the house and enjoy dressing up and spending time with each other. We had to reschedule our reservation at Second Empire 3 times but we were determined to go! It was perfect evening and we parked a few blocks away so we could enjoy a nice walk outside. The food was amazing we enjoyed the jumbo lump crab cake and grilled Latin seasoned pork rib chop in the main dinning hall. We decided to split the peanut butter raspberry tart for dessert and I practically ate it all by myself. If you live in the Raleigh area or visiting, I highly recommend checking out Second Empire!
