If you haven’t had a chance to visit The Durham Hotel and Andrea Reusing’s new restaurant, bar, and coffee shop yourself, then check out Eater’s gallery of the new space.
Instead of Asian-inflected dishes, Reusing is offering more classic fare like steaks, a roasted-to-order chicken, a house burger, and bone-in country pork ribs. Known for her commitment to North Carolina foodways, keep an eye out for local specialties like Durham mushrooms in a mushroom soup, North Carolina trout roe with sour cream from Durham, or an eggplant parm with mozzarella from Chapel Hill.
It looks like a huge departure from The Lantern both in decor and menu, kudos to the folks behind the concept for seemingly pulling off something really nice. I haven’t had a chance to check it out myself, but I’m looking forward to making a trip out there soon.
If you’re interested in more information about the new space, Eater spoke with Reusing earlier this year about the concept before it opened.
