RALEIGH, N.C. — Babe, I'm gonna feed you, one top North Carolina eatery reassured Led Zeppelin's famished frontman.

The News & Observer reports that Robert Plant and his backing band, Sensational Space Shifters, made their way to Garland after kicking off their U.S. tour in Raleigh on Friday night. Although the kitchen had closed before their arrival, the owners — James Beard Award-nominated chef Cheetie Kumar and her husband, Paul Siler, who also have a band together — were happy to show the group a whole lotta love.

Kumar whipped up several small plates, including warm hummus, fried cauliflower and a beet and persimmon salad, free of charge. In return, the band sang her "Happy Birthday" and invited the couple to Sunday's Charlotte show. It wasn't actually Kumar's birthday.
