Durham, Erwin Road new restaurants? Has anyone visited?

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.

  1. 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.

    1. 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?

      1. 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.

        1. 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!
