We just moved to Nanas neighborhood and one of the things we repeatedly heard was how lucky we’d be with Nanas reopening. Everyone was right! We’ve been twice and both were wonderful. Overall the theme for us was astounding seafood and vegetable-forward dishes. I’d highly recommend the scallop, tuna and oysters for appetizers. We didn’t know what the Milanese would be like and felt astounded. We loved the pumpkin and shrimp pastas and spent awhile debating which was the favorite—the risotto won out due to the flavor bomb broth. Our only mild disappointment was the gnudi. We’d been told it’d be very light (which the ingredients also suggested) but the sauce was soo buttery. It wasn’t bad, just not what we’d hoped for based on the description. We’ve mainly focused on those categories thus far, but for our chicken entree did find it really moist. Last but not least (food wise) the sweet potato split was phenomenal! The staff did a crazy job of keeping the drinks going, and their attentiveness was always spot on. The ambience is one where we felt “special” when we went as a nicer date night, but equally comfortable when we just stopped in. As the smallest note, the decor is awesome and reflects the vibe they’re clearly cultivating. New favorite, and for us, only a short walk away!

The new Nanas knocks it out of the park by every measure. The dishes are classic, but still inventive. The drinks, especially the Duke's martini, are perfect. It is hands down the most beautiful interior of any restaurant in the Triangle area. Even the music playing in the dining area compliments the vibe of the menu perfectly. The attention to detail is stunning. I can't wait to come back and try every single dish.

It’s difficult to express how happy I am that Nana’s is back and how often I’m going to go back. It’s absolutely stunning inside. So many different textures and surfaces. Have you noticed the trend with restaurants where it’s gotten incredibly loud? Not here. The carpets, leather, and old school separate rooms allow you to have a conversation, but it’s not stuffy in the slightest. Every single thing we put in our mouths was incredible. Really impressive finesse and execution on their first week. Solid bar program too. Everything Matt Kelly touches is gold, and reborn Nana’s is no exception. We’re not only going to be back — I’m making my next res now.
