Named a Diners' Choice Winner on OpenTable, 604 West Morgan dishes a menu of creamy pastas, seared meats, and Italian-inspired seafood in a loft-chic atmosphere adorned with exposed brick walls and spherical chandeliers. Like splitting the atom, splitting a plate of butternut-squash or beef carpaccio unites groups and energizes meetings. The restaurant's tempting entrées range from the lobster pasta, a mélange of seafood atop a bed of black squid-ink pasta, to the traditional New York strip. On the savory pork milanese, chefs sprinkle crunchy breading on meat, sizzle on a pan, and pair with heirloom tomatoes and mozzarella. While indulging dessert-hungry taste buds with a dish of rum-soaked apple cake and vanilla-bean gelato, couples can relax with a glass of wine (not included in this Groupon) and gaze at colorful paintings and rustic exposed rafters. Groups can also opt to take in the breezes on the outdoor patio, where umbrella-topped tables and Italian-imported stars infuse dinner with continental charm.
604 at West Village
Towering brick walls reach up to the exposed wooden rafters and modern, spherical chandeliers hang from 604 at West Village's high ceilings. Beneath this rustic, yet refined decor, plates of contemporary Italian dishes travel to tables, loaded with locally sourced produce, wild boar from Broken Arrow Ranch, and housemade pastas. Every day, chefs incorporate new ingredients from the Durham Farmers' Market into their risotto and craft the pasta primavera exclusively from fresh, seasonal vegetables. During warmer months, the restaurant hosts live jazz performances on its outdoor patio, allowing diners to enjoy the music and eat with silverware made from smelted saxophones.
Sharing the location, but offering a more casual dining environment, The Pizzeria serves oven-crisped pies alongside a similar selection of refined entrees with locally sourced ingredients. Although the chefs are equally comfortable with tossing thin-crust, new york style pizzas by hand and sculpting thicker, sicilian-style pizzas, their signature creation is the Grandma pan pizza with garlic- and basil-spiked tomato sauce. Although The Pizzeria's dining room shares the same brick walls as 604 at West Village, it creates a more lounge-like feel by lining them with neon beer signs and vintage posters advertising low-definition TVs.
