Duke students are passionate about addressing healthcare disparities, and many use this passion to pursue a career in the healthcare field.

With a menu encompassing a vast spectrum of fish, shellfish, and oyster varieties, the ethos of the restaurant is rooted in providing quality seafood from local sources. I believe it achieves this with grace and impeccable finesse.
