For twenty years, we have lived and traveled the world. We are often surprised and inspired by the food we have eaten along the way. From the first apple tarts in France, the Pecorino cheese in Tuscany, Weiss Wurst in Germany, Espada (scabbard fish) on the island of Madeira, to Hong Kong, Thailand and China, we have learned new flavors and techniques to add to the outstanding food of the American South. — At Plates, we hope that you will enjoy some of our favorite international dishes combined with our regional southern flavors. Join us on a new culinary journey that is globally inspired and locally produced.

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We have zero complaints and will return. Because we are vegan and try to only eat toxin free food, it is difficult to find a place to eat out... especially for breakfast or brunch. We will definitely be returning!

Food was delicious, the vibes were great and their outdoor seating is perfect for a spring morning! I recommend asking for the green goddess sauce for fries...very yummy and our server (Taylor) was so quick, super helpful and friendly!

Great place! We were seated right away and the staff was polite. Was disappointed they did not have bottomless mimosas but $3 for one is very fair price. Had a great time! Will definitely go back!

We had a great experience! We could only find reservations for the bar, but that ended up being awesome. We had a ton of space, and the bartenders were attentive. Our food was delicious, and the drinks were yummy, too! Highly recommend and will definitely be going back.

Staff was very accommodating. We were running a few minutes late and that was no problem, we just had to be mindful of how long the table was reserved. Crab cake eggs benedict were good, side of fruit. Daughter's french toast was excellent. Waiter checked in a time or two. No complaints. The location was the best part; cool street.

This was a pleasant surprise, very solid brunch offerings, attentive and knowledgeable server. Price value was reasonable. Really good Belgian waffles and omelette (spinach/mushrooms). Great specialty coffees. Would definitely return.

Great food and drink, but outdoor ambience is shattered by the repeated harassment by panhandlers passing on the sidewalk, so don't take the tables closest to the street if you want to avoid this sort of annoyance.

The food was amazing!! So fresh and delicious. Our server, Taylor, was one of the best we’ve ever had. Her recommendations on the menu was spot on! Ordered the veggie roast with short rib and it was to die for! Highly recommend the sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Chris, the bar manager, makes the most delicious cocktails. Order the Woodland Forest, you won’t be disappointed. We can’t wait to go back!!

One of our favorites in the Triangle. They have a great outdoor patio. The music is too loud on the inside but the patio is awesome. Love the fresh farm to table food and the grass fed beef not to mention the wonderful organic Boulted bread!

Plates Kitchen was our choice for a Saturday night dinner while on a weekend trip to Durham . Plates Kitchen turned out to be the best choice of our trip because it was organized , delicious , a great value for the wonderful quality . The restaurant has nice ambiance and such a friendly enthusiastic staff . They made us feel so special and could tell their other customers felt the same. During this very stressful time the staff did a great job making everyone feel comfortable by providing a safe environment but focusing on their business of providing a great experience and an exceptional meal! Will be back !

The food was excellent. I have the Big Veggie Bake and I added grilled chicken... The veggies were so good that the extra protein wasn't even necessary. The drinks were excellent, but the Sticky Toffee dessert was the best thing I ever put in my mouth! OMG!
