Nana’s has been one of Durham’s best white table cloth restaurant for many years. Scott did a great job with the wine list and menu. Sorry to see them close the end of June best wishes for third great staff!

The best restaurant in the triangle! Best food, delicious wines and fabulous service. You don't want to miss out before it closes up.

We had a great time at Nana"s. Food was awesome and I'm a foodie. Sad that they are closing 6/30/18 - this would of been one of our frequent go to places. Hopefully, they will open in a new location.

I’ve been to Nana’s several times and it always impresses. The sauces are always unique and delicious. If I were to rank the best restaurants in Durham, Nana’s would be at the top.

A definite highlight to my visit to Durham. I had the lamb chops that were excellent. To be honest, I think our waiter was having an off night, as I could tell by the other waiters that they are normally very attentive. There was a...More

They do have salads. I am sure they would do their very best to accommodate you if you called or asked.

I/we did not have the tasting menu although it was highly recommended. I believe the pricing of the tasting menu is per individual and an additional charge for wine parings.
