Il Palio chosen as 2011 NC Best Dish Competition Finalist

The Best Dish in NC restaurant contest was inaugurated in 2006 to bring awareness to the numerous restaurants and chefs who feature local cuisine on their menus. This annual statewide competition, open to any restaurant or restaurant group doing business in North Carolina, is the official restaurant contest of the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and its Goodness Grows in North Carolina marketing program. It is our goal each year to determine who serves the best food in the state using ingredients that are grown or produced in North Carolina.

Many restaurants purchase meats, seafood, produce, cheeses, wines, sauces, breaders, mixes, beverages, and other great products from local purveyors. They know that using the freshest ingredient available will help them provide the best meal possible for their customers. Customers have the opportunity to taste the difference local products bring to the table. These restaurants also understand what the importance of buying North Carolina products means to the state’s economy and environment.
