If you’re visiting from Raleigh or Cary, we suggest you make a beeline for the Durham Hotel Restaurant. Undoubtedly one of best restaurants in Durham, NC, it’s also much more than a restaurant! Adjacent to the restaurant you’ll find an all-day coffee bar serving Counter Culture Coffee, house-made pastries, snacks, and lunch. When the weather agrees, meet up with friends for a drink at the roof bar, where you can also enjoy a raw food bar and a small kitchen menu.
The award-winning restaurant serves up elemental American flavors all day, with only the best quality local ingredients, like heirloom tomatoes, blue crab soufflé, dry-aged beef, raw and roasted North Carolina oysters, and artisan bread.
Want to taste a little bit of everything? We love this tapas bar, where they serve casual-yet-refined Spanish small plates – with a Southern accent. The list of Spanish wines is extraordinary, but the sherry selection might be even better! Featuring beloved ingredients and dishes of the South, you’ll find everything from smoked North Carolina trout salad to fried chicken with hot smoked paprika dip. Small plates mean you can try more!
Here’s another take on southern fusion, but this time it’s South America meeting the American south. Owner and chef Shawn Stokes brings unique and varied South American ingredients to traditional dishes with roots in the American South. You’ll love the results: Peruvian roast chicken, vegan chili-braised jackfruit, eggplant empanadas with tomato, caramelized onion, and chevre, and passionfruit pie – to name just a few!

We love the thin crust on their wood-fired pizza, plus fresh salads and flavorful soups. Unique pizza flavors like sweet fennel sausage are definite favorites, and the appetizers change with the season to incorporate fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. You’ll find an excellent wine list here, too.
