"Unsung" restaurants in Durham, NC

Or, should I say, very good restaurants that I hope won't go out of business for lack of traffic!

I've visited Tonali twice in the last ten days -- once for dinner on a Thursday (6:30 -- had to get to a Duke concert at 8 pm) and for dinner this past Saturday night (7:45) -- both times, the food was excellent. Both times, not too many people in the dining room. I'll admit, it had been several months since I'd been to the restaurant prior to this October run....

The food: Had the poblano stuffed with organic mashed potatoes and queso blanco on a bed of tomato confit on Thursday (hearty portion, ate about half); on Saturday, had the fish tacos ("tempura"-like grouper) -- very good. Other diners had Prince Edward Mussel stew (deemed very good by the PEI mussel expert) and another round of fish tacos.

Anyway, here's the question -- what other restaurants do others love but fear will tank due to lack of patrons?
