You just graduated from Duke and your extended family is in town to celebrate. Take them to Mediterranean staple Parizade. The busy dining room feels like a cross between the set of Legends of the Hidden Temple and a music video in a museum, while the back patio feels like a piazza. In other words, Parizade is probably the most eccentric restaurant in Durham. Be sure to order the linguine with clams and chorizo, the herb-stuffed branzino with broccolini, and an Aperol spritz.
