About Nana's Since the opening of Nana’s in December of 1992, through the extensive remodeling and expansion completed in March 2000, until today, Nana’s remains one of the most popular restaurants in the Triangle area and we invite you to join us for a great dinner. Customers enter on brick pavers that flow onto a hardwood floor constructed of true heart pine reclaimed from a warehouse built in downtown Durham over sixty years ago. The dining rooms, with warm cayenne pepper and yellow mustard seed walls, appointed with imaginative paintings by local artists, dramatic chandeliers and candlelight, invoke a warm and cozy feel. The lounge showcases a pleasing blend of “old world” cherry woodwork and “new world” brushed, stainless steel columns and bar tops. Not only is the bar a place to enjoy a libation before moving to the dining room, or a spot to relax for that after dinner glass of port, but the entire menu is offered as well. Chef Scott Howell can still be spotted delivering dishes to tables in his signature uniform: chef whites, shorts and ball cap.

Nana's red velvet recipe... Word of advice: make the icing! It might seem weird to start out an icing like a gravy, but that's the right way to do it!
