Poole's Diner

Poole's in downtown Raleigh is now open seven nights a week for dinner, according to a Tweet by owner and chef Ashley Christensen. They used to be closed on Mondays and only serve brunch on Sundays. 

We also learned through Christensen's Twitter account that Joule Coffee is now taking applications and has recently hired a managing barista. To apply, just email a resume and cover letter to lara@ac-restaurants.com. Joule will be located at 223 S. Wilmington St. in the location formerly occupied by the Wilmoore Cafe. And for those of you missing Poole's Sunday brunches, don't despair - Joule will be serving some items off of their brunch menu! 

Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar will be opening up its first Raleigh location on Monday inside of North Hills' Captrust Tower. As the name implies, Cowfish serves sushi, burgers and even spiked milkshakes. Out and About will be checking the place out on Friday so look for our review and follow us on Twitter for real-time updates during the meal!
