Herons is known as one of the best places in the Triangle for fine dining. Located inside The Umstead Hotel and Spa, they waste no opportunity to treat their patrons well. From valet parking to a small tour of the hotel and spa, the experience culminates in their intimate dining room filled with beautiful views and beautiful food. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, Herons features American cuisine translated through local, seasonal ingredients brought in from their nearby farm. With several recognitions and five-star accolades, it's definitely a place to try on your next special occasion! Guys, even though the Umstead uses edible flowers to beautify their dishes, that doesn't mean you can skip the flowers.
