Dinners at the Nasher Museum in Durham

Bookmark and Share

Durham's Nasher Museum has a series of summer events for those who like to combine art and food.

The next installment of the Dinner and a Movie series is 7 p.m. June 21 with "The Trip"(2010). The Nasher Cafe will offer an a la carte menu and a two-course special menu for movie patrons.

The movie is free but seating fills up. One tip: dinner guests get reserve seating for the film. To make dinner reservations, call 919-684-6032.

The next two movies include "Eat Drink Man Woman" (1994) airing 7 p.m. July 19. and "The Last Supper" (1995) at 7 p.m. Aug. 16.

The other interesting summer event for food lovers is the Gourmet Innovators dinners, where chefs prepare art-inspired menus for the cafe.

Those events include: Vimala Rajendran of Vimala's Curryblossom Cafe in Chapel Hill on June 28, Alfredo Alvarex of Chapel Hill's City Kitchen on July 26 and Tim Lyons of Durham's Blu Seafood and Bar on Aug. 23. Typically, the chefs create a three-course menu for a fixed price plus some a la carte options. The special menu is offered from 5-8:15 p.m. at the Nasher Cafe.
