Welcome to Durham's Best Steakhouse

We are now open for brunch on 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.

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.

 NanaSteak offers high-energy upscale dining at its finest.  Enjoy drinks and appetizers with friends at the beautiful and well appointed bar or dine in one of the three stylized dining rooms from a menu full of local North Carolina fare.  The award wining wine list offers many unique and interesting selections to compliment any meal.  With an impeccable attention to detail, this is the perfect backdrop for an extraordinary evening.  

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.
