Giorgios Signature

Our History

Following over 25 years of experience, Parizade has become a Durham icon, with an atmosphere created with influences found in Durham, but with the colors and romance of the Mediterranean. With relaxed elegance, gracious service, and a theatrical ambiance the restaurant shares with its neighborhood a dining experience unlike any other in the area. By the vision of founder Giorgios Bakatsias, Parizade’s focus and passion of the ingredient has brought many customers from all over to notice. Also by the leadership of head chef Robert Adams, unique, outstanding cuisine and superb hospitality have been their priority. At Parizade you are the star. Let us put on a show for you that you won’t soon forget.
