Delectable Dining

The chefs at Flask & Beaker didn’t have to look far for great menu ideas. Drawing inspiration from North Carolina State University’s philosophy of research and collaboration, they looked to the local area, tapped into the spirit of inquiry, and brainstormed with farmers and growers to create a true farm-to-table experience. Using two of North Carolina’s largest crops, blueberries and sweet potatoes, as a starting point, the chefs created a seasonal menu filled with local flavor and innovative twists. You’ll see the expected North Carolina BBQ on the menu, but in an unexpected way.


Flask & Beaker’s bar offerings are equally creative with that local twist, of course. The beer and wine list is brimming with carefully curated selections from the finest breweries and wineries in the region. Generous pours of local wines will provide you with a smooth ending to a busy day in Raleigh.

Our mixologists take their cocktails seriously. Through careful research plus recipe (and taste!) testing, our beverage team combines fresh ingredients with their own imaginations to create original, signature cocktails inspired by the local area and the seasons. They’re always up for a collaboration, so if there’s a cocktail you want, let them know. They’ll be happy to mix it up for you.
