The Darling of Raleigh

Award Winner

Ashley Christensen

Beasley’s Chicken + Honey, Chuck’s, Fox Liquor Bar, and Poole’s Downtown Diner, Raleigh, North Carolina

Mention the Raleigh food scene to anyone and one name stands out: Ashley Christensen. This influential chef turned retro-chic on its head at Poole’s Downtown Diner and her three other restaurants, where her thoughtful, ingredient-driven comfort food is at once nostalgic and thoroughly of this moment.
