Venue Review: Nana's Durham
The tables are as close as ever in Nana's newly expanded and refurbished dining room, but the ambience is more polished, with Italian chandeliers lighting crisp walls and upholstery the colors of Dijon mustard and ripe tomato. That makes Nana's, already one of the top dining destinations in the Triangle, an even more special spot to savor the likes of rosemary roasted organic chicken, grilled pork loin over creamy polenta, pan-roasted Maine salmon, sauteed halibut with spinach spaetzle and Howell's signature risotto. Chef-proprietor Scott Howell's pursuit of excellence doesn't stop at dessert, either. Folks have been known to drive all the way from Virginia just for his creme brulee.
