Back in 2010, Frazier's on Hillsborough closed its doors, only to reopen later that year as a Wine Bar (with food). Unfortunately, it looks like the high-end establishment of Urban Food Group has decided to close its doors for good. The owners of the restaurant sent Greg Cox, restaurant critic at the N&O, a letter this weekend stating their intentions of closing the bar.
Urban Food Group also runs some of the other best restaurants in Raleigh, including Porter's next door on Hillsborough, Vivace and Coquette in North Hills and Chow. Frazier's will be missed but unfortunately it seems that such a high-end establishment just can't make it on Hillsborough Street. The faculty and staff of NC State are probably most of the clientele for Frazier's and they leave each day around 6pm. Hillsborough Street doesn't have the biggest night scene, especially for a higher dollar crowd.
