In 2016, Rufty-Peedin completed a painstaking restoration of the historic Varsity Theater on Hillsborough Street in Raleigh. Originally dubbed H-Street Kitchen, this fabulous space was perfect for a restaurant and garnered a great deal of attention prior to its opening. Rufty-Peedin worked on behalf of developer Michael Sandman to bring new life back to one of Raleigh’s main thoroughfares across from N.C. State University.
We’re proud to support the community revitalization of Hillsborough Street and creation of a new Wolfpack institution. Stop by and see (and taste) the unique features of this restaurant for yourself. We added second level dining and even the historic marquee was restored to new glory, which makes this restaurant a special place.
