Pharoh's returning to Downtown

SEP 24, 2011

If you've been around Downtown Raleigh for a few years, you may remember that there was a Pharoh's on Davie Street a few years back.  Well, the Triangle Business Journal is reporting that the restaurant is returning, but this time, to a new location.

"The locally-owned Pharaoh’s deli chain is opening up a new shop within the N.C. Museum of History in downtown Raleigh.

Pharaoh's @ the Museum owner George McNeill says the museum eatery will open Sept. 24.

Its menu will be familiar to patrons of his Pharaoh’s location at North Hills and other shops he’s opened in the past around town: heavy on hot dogs, hamburgers and a chicken salad recipe that was handed down to him from his mother, Margaret. It will also be offering breakfast items -- including eggs, sausage, grits and biscuits -- during the weekdays.

Pharaoh’s @ the Museum will be located at the Jones Street entrance to the museum across from the Legislative Building. A portion of Pharaoh’s revenue will be donated to the museum, McNeill says.

McNeill, who also operates an antiques and interior design business in Raleigh, says he was as meticulous about designing the restaurant’s decor as he was the menu. The space will feature pressed tin ceiling, red “pleather” booths, track lighting and a stainless steel counter area.

Pharaoh’s will be open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Both take-out service and indoor seating will be available."
