This was a place always on our short list to go to in Durham, but always seemed to get bumped by another restaurant. It's now on our short list of favorites. When my wife and I arrived, we went to the bar to wait for the couple joining us. The bar tender recommended a couple of excellent wines by the glass, and then proceeded to talk to us in depth about the menu. Very helpful. We took a table on the patio and enjoyed the cool spring night with more wine, fabulous food and okay service. Try the mac and cheese as a shared dish - one order is plenty for a table of four. If you order it for yourself as a main course, plan on having enough for lunch the next day. The entrees are very generous, so on our next visit, I think we'll skip the appetizers, or just order one entree to share. All in all, can't wait to go back.
