Discove r Cit yV iewN m's fre s h up d ate d loo k ! | 37 "YOU'VE GOT THE PERFECT THING GOING ON," says our server Jaedon, who is dressed in black from head to toe and possesses dark, mischievous eyes. He has laid down a beautifully presented Mediterranean "sampler" platter – a feast that captures us with color and texture – right down to the most minute details. Baba ghanouj topped with a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds, hummus in a moat of extra-virgin olive oil, stuffed grape leaves drizzled with lemon juice, light and crispy Egyptian falafel, positively addictive tzatziki sauce (made in-house as are all the sauces), and a Pharoahs' specialty, pickled turnips. e latter are a bit salty for our tastes but add a magnificent burst of red to the presentation. To scoop it all up: pita bread fresh from the oven. Perfection on a platter – and then some – is par for the course at Pharoahs Legacy, just down from the Gates Four golf community in the Traemoor Village shopping center. If the Pharoahs name sounds familiar, there's good reason. In 2014, with his brother Sam, chef/owner Ronnie Askharon opened his more casual Mediterranean eatery and market, called Pharoahs Village, on Hope Mills Road. His latest creation, Pharoahs Legacy, is an upscale restaurant, complete with authentic Egyptian art, a happening bar and a well-chosen wine list. e new restaurant opened in late November in a space formerly occupied by Pierro's Italian Bistro. e buzz escalated on the restaurant's Facebook page aer videos posted of a New Year's Eve celebration featuring Yara Sultan, a striking belly dancer who is scheduled to perform select dates in February and the coming months.
