Over the past several years, the Eschelon Group led by G. Patel has put up restaurants in downtown Raleigh at a dizzying pace. From Mura to the Oxford, Cameron Bar and Grill, Zinda, Faire and more. So it was surprising but totally sensible when I heard about their first foray into the Durham market. While Durham is doing great with Southern eats and beer, some more ethnic flava like Basan makes total sense. So I was pretty excited to get an invite for their media event and hoofed it over, early on a Wednesday evening.
