This was a great (super fancy) place for dates or business meetings, but all things must come to an end. This one apparently flooded one too many times. Thanks for the wonderful evenings and best of luck with your future ventures.

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!

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.

Let's be honest: Nana's is a victim of expectations. If we'd had this same meal almost anywhere else, we would've been very impressed. But with all the rave reviews and the long tenure in the Triangle for this restaurant, we just expected a tiny bit...More
