Bolt Bistro and Bar will open soon in the space formerly occupied by The Mint on Fayetteville Street. By open soon, I mean “Late Summer” according to the new sign posted in the space windows. According to the restaurant’s website:
The concept of Bolt is to bring a sleek, clean, approachable, affordable, dining experience to Downtown Raleigh.
Bolt has teamed up with International Culinary Superstar Penny Davidi! Penny and our chefs are working on a local infused menu from North Carolina.
The sign also has a little rendering of the outdoor seating space. Could Bolt finally create a lively outdoor seating scene that The Mint could not?
- None right now. Must be a new project.

Your second pic of the week shows outdoor seating for the new Bolt Bistro. It is unclear – is this seating on Fayetteville or in the side lane where the existing elevated patio tables sit under shade trees.
The existing patio was unpopular because the Mint was unpopular. If the Bolt is cool, then hanging out on the patio as it exists right now would be great. It would be ashamed to replace it with that modernistic but ugly seating shown in the picture!
