A converted old house is the new home of Segari's, the restaurant that Sam Segari started in the '90s on Durham. The quirky little place in the Heights has nine tables that fill up quickly, and a third of the place is taken up by a well-stocked bar. Everyone seems to be a regular here. The menu has many seafood specials, all at market prices (maybe that's why no prices are listed on the menu). Everything served here is absolutely top-quality and as fresh as can be. Desserts here are listed first on the menu, 'cause that's the way Sam liked them. Their bread pudding with whiskey sauce is remarkable.
