The Downtown Raleigh Alliance is encouraging locals to explore downtown Raleigh’s global food scene with Eat the World Week, happening Monday, May 1-Friday, May 5.

During the initiative, post a photo of yourself eating international food from a downtown spot and tag @downtownraleighalliance on Instagram to be entered to win prizes.

Here are some suggestions from your City Editors:

City Editor Cat’s picks

Some of my go-to spots for downtown international fare are Cortez for Mexican-American small plates like smoked and loaded NC papas, City Market Sushi for specialty rolls, and Opa! Raleigh — located in Morgan Street Food Hall — for Greek kebabs.

City Editor Anne’s picks

It’s so hard to choose, but if I had to pick some downtown favorites, I’d go with Centro Mexican Restaurant, Mulino Italian Kitchen & Bar (they’re reopening Tuesday, May 2), and O-Ku. Oh, and for dessert, I’d pick up some treats from Mon Macaron.

Pro tip: Use this downtown dining page to sort restaurants by categories like Mexican + Latin American, Indian, and more.
