Oro Opens Sunday

oroHere is the press release for the first restaurant to open in the base of the PNC Plaza in downtown Raleigh.:

ORO Restaurant & Lounge located in the PNC Building in Downtown Raleigh, opens for dinner on Sunday, May 20, 2012. ORO, meaning “gold” in Spanish and Italian, features generously portioned, sharable tapas-style comfort food re-interpreted for a modern palate.

Executive Chef and owner Christopher Hylton is a global traveler who brings tastes, textures and flavors from around the world to ORO’s eclectic seasonal menu. Guests can dine on Fried Softshell Crab with Apricot Jalapeno Vinaigrette served with Mango Jicama Salad, Filet Mignon in Sake Brine with Crispy Onions, or Red and Golden Beet Salad with Pickled Watermelon and Smoked Goat Cheese, all for under $15 per item.

In addition, ORO features a custom vertical wine carousel and an innovative 16 wine on-tap system pouring extraordinary wines by the 2 oz., 4 oz., 6 oz. or 8 oz. glass. Guests can opt to try three different wines or hand-crafted cocktails at once by ordering ORO’s customizable samplers.
“ORO was born from love, patience, and a desire to bring a big city dining feel to Raleigh,” said co-owner Cara Zalcberg Hylton, who along husband Christopher Hylton has spent the past three years painstakingly selecting every detail of the restaurant to create just the right experience.
From soft and supple white leather chairs to striking, signature vintage glass chandeliers, ORO’s look and feel is a seemingly effortless balance of elegance and comfort that, like its food, is meant to be savored and shared.

For the high-tech inclined, or anyone who just wants a perfectly timed meal, ORO is using a first-in-North Carolina Apple iPad app that enables servers to send orders to the bar or kitchen instantaneously from the table.

Owned and operated by Hyton Hospitality, ORO is located at 18 East Martin Street in the PNC Building (at the corner of Martin and Wilmington Streets in Downtown Raleigh). Monday through Friday, ORO serves lunch from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, ORO serves dinner 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The restaurant is open until midnight on Friday and Saturday and 9:00 p.m. on Sunday.
