Fellow Hounds,

I just drove past Erwin Road's Erwin Terrace mixed use development (you know, where Chai's is, right across Duke's West Campus), and noticed two new restaurants have opened. I was driving a bit too fast to really catch their names, but was wondering if any of you had info on them.

    I've eaten at Nosh several times for lunch. I wouldn't go out of my way to go there for dinner but for lunch they do a very fine job with salads, sandwiches, and pizzas.

      the other place is wishbone grill, a midpriced chicken franchise, sort of along the lines of the loop or something like that. 'sokay. nosh is, i agree, a decent place for lunch. nothing terribly exciting--sort of run of the mill americana shlock. and what's with the skis all over the walls?

        I love Nosh! It is my favorite restaurant in the area! Great salads, sandwiches, pizzas. Yummy! The decor is so refreshing next to the chain restaurants.

          Yeah Nosh is pretty good - their "Paula Rocks Wrap" is particularly tasty. I do think their food is just a tad overpriced though. I've been to the Wishbone Grill as well which is definitely nothing amazing. Shade Tree, which is a coffee place right along Erwin in that complex, is my favorite coffee place in the area - you should definitely check it out!
