The Art Institute of Raleigh-Durham has opened its student-operated restaurant in Durham’s American Tobacco Campus.

The restaurant, The District at 410, is open for lunch from noon-2 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, except on May 12 when it will be closed for a private party.

The restaurant’s theme is small plates. Favorites on the menu include pan seared scallops served with creamy polenta and balsamic drizzle; slider burgers; crispy fried Brussels sprouts with prosciutto, banana pepper and Parmesan cheese; savory baby carrots glazed in butter and brown sugar.

Prices range from $2.50-$5.50 for small plates, $6.50-$12.50 for large plates, $2 -$2.50 for sides and $4 for desserts.

The District is located in the lobby of the Fowler Building at 410 Blackwell St. Reservations are recommended; drop-in patrons will be seated as space is available. For reservations, please call 919-317-3200 or email
