Just the rich Raleigh and NC State heritage alone of the people involved piqued my interest when I first heard initial whispers about the restaurant concept coming to the vacant Varsity Theatre space on Hillsborough Street. And now that we know more, I can’t wait to get a chance to explore the space. Construction is only just beginning, but the renderings and description of H-Street Kitchen look and sound fantastic:
The 240-seat restaurant will feature an open kitchen serving up an American menu developed by executive chef Adam Rose, formerly of Il Palio and Straw Valley Cafe. Offerings will include sandwiches, burgers, entrees and a rotating selection of “Red Plate” specials. Bryant said dishes will run $8 to $17.
I love what they hope to accomplish and I hope they do it. This is the most excited I’ve been about an upcoming project in the Triangle in a long time.
