The breakfast, dinner, and Sunday brunch menus in the restaurant focus on elemental American flavors – ingredients like blue crab, heirloom apples, barnyard chicken, country ham, farmstead cheese, and fresh homemade butter – inspiring a comfortable, festive dining experience.


With an all-day coffee shop serving Counter Culture Coffee and house-made pastries by day, transitioning into a restaurant serving melting pot and hotel classics by night, the dining room at The Durham is a vibrant all-day destination for guests and locals alike.

The raw bar & small kitchen menu on the roof offers oysters, clams, and cured and raw fish and shellfish cocktails alongside snacks and shareable plates like picnic eggs and steak tartare. Daily seafood selections emphasize fisherman’s favorites normally seen only on the coast, like porgy, sheepshead, and mackerel.


In chillier months, the roof is enclosed, cozy wool blankets are on hand, and mugs of hot shellfish chowders, rich broths, and griddled sandwiches are on the menu.


The drink list offers hand-crafted original cocktails and well-made classics with a rotating selection of local brewers and authentic wines from small family producers.
