The Restaurant at Second Empire
Uptown in Downtown Raleigh!
The Ultimate Dining Experience in an Elegant yet Relaxed Atmosphere
Located in the elegantly restored Dodd-Hinsdale house (circa 1879), Second Empire combines history, atmosphere, and gourmet cuisine for an unforgettable dining experience.
Next, stop by our tavern and see what’s on tap. This exposed brick cellar may pique your interest about the history of the 121-year-old house. We also have a wonderful atrium and outdoor seating on the front porch!
If you’re looking for the perfect spot to entertain clients, customers, or just friends and family, let us show you our private dining facilities. We can accommodate everything from small dinners to receptions and business events. Second Empire is also the perfect setting for an elegant wedding, reception, rehearsal dinner or bridesmaid luncheon.
As a special opportunity, how would you like to dine in the kitchen at our special Chef’s Table.
