In 2003, Durates' was given an honorary James Beard Award for Excellence as an American Classic. They serve up to 13,000 people a month, so it's not unusual to arrive and see a line of people outside. We came late afternoon during the week and had no problems and were seated right away. Their claim to fame is their artichoke soup...we had ours half and half with their green chili soup...now that was something else. They are also known for their fresh made pies, although I must say I wasn't impressed.
