We are now open for brunch on Saturday & Sunday from 10:30am-2pm!


NanaSteak opened its doors in February 2016 in a newly built space located next to the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) and Aloft Durham Downtown Hotel. This restaurant is a vision and partnership between husband-and-wife-team, Scott Howell & Aubrey Zinaich-Howell and their long-time friends and former Nana's employees, Tyler Joplin Vanderzee, Brad Weddington and Graham Weddington.

The restaurant boasts a beautiful corner location with abundant natural light. It was designed and built by Jack Moore of Gateway Building Company. In homage to Durham's long tobacco history, the bar top and tables are inlaid with real tobacco leaves, artfully crafted by Artisan Leaf. With windows into the kitchen on the exterior of the building and in the dining room, passerby's and diners alike can enjoy a rare glimpse into the heart of the restaurant.

The NanaSteak family is thrilled to be a part of the New Durham movement downtown--the systematic and loving restoration of our great city one block at a time and the revitalization of culture including new shops, bars, restaurants and hotels. 

Reservations are available in the dining room and are recommended. The menu is subject to change. The bar area (including the hightop tables) are first-come, first-served only. For private dining inquiries, please contact our private dining coordinator via email: amber@nanasteak.com.
