      Fairview Dining Room Earns Forbes Travel Guide
         Four-Star Award 2014                  

The Fairview Dining Room in the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club was named Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Award 2014 winner at an awards ceremony at the ARIA Resort & Casio in Las Vegas recently. As a new Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Award winner, the Fairview Dining Room brings home another milestone achievement for its seasonally inspired contemporary cuisine, exceptional service and extensive wine list. The honored restaurant consecutively wins the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence and the AAA Four Diamond Award year after year but the esteemed Forbes Travel Guide award celebrates the Fairview Dining Room as an outstanding establishment—and one of only two restaurants in the state to receive both the AAA Four Diamond and Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Award—offering guests a truly exceptional level of luxury and service in the Triangle’s upscale dining scene.

The Fairview Dining Room is locally, regionally and nationally renowned for its seasonally inspired contemporary cuisine, exceptional service, extensive wine list and its glorious vistas of the prestigious Robert Trent Jones-designed Duke University Golf Club.  Executive Chef Jason Cunningham leads the talented staff that creates the restaurant's Award-winning fare.  Cunningham seeks out and utilizes locally grown foods, pairing these delicacies with the finest products from around the world to delight and engage the most discriminating of palates.  The Fairview, perfectly appointed with English antiques and fine paintings, boasts decorative fabric in rich hues and offers guests a luxurious dining experience.  And its outdoor terrace is the perfect place to enjoy both the extraordinary cuisine and the region's fine weather.  To further enhance its premier dining experience, the Fairview has assembled an extensive wine list featuring 250 varieties of the world's finest vintages.  Forty of these esteemed labels are available by the glass.  French, Italian and American wines comprise the wine collection, which consistently receives the Wine Spectator magazine Award of Excellence.
