Nestled in the lush greenery of a state-of-the-art AgTech campus
Glasshouse Kitchen provides a fresh and colorful dining experience for the Research Triangle’s residential and commercial community through seasonal food, craft cocktails, and a thoughtfully curated wine menu.
A bar of stately marble centers the space underneath a tasteful canopy of hanging greenery. Natural light fills the dining room through floor-to-ceiling windows, making enviable brunches even more Instagrammable. Locals and Triangle visitors alike can grab a casual bite or celebrate a memorable milestone with local ingredients that open up a world of flavor.
A 3,500+ sq ft Kitchen
Our 3,500 square foot kitchen is designed and fully-loaded to meet the growing needs of the bustling campus, and the juxtaposition of our tech-equipped private dining area with our bocce court and fire pits creates an ideal spot for work or play seven days a week.
We are honored to have this opportunity to create a new destination for the people of Research Triangle – one that is worthy of the caliber of the innovation happening right here in our community.

The Team Behind Glasshouse Kitchen
An NC native, Savannah Miller started in hospitality early, working part time in fast casual dining as a high schooler in the Southern Pines area. With her love of this restaurant family dynamic, and long time passion for dining out, she decided to make hospitality work her career. Attending the New England Culinary Institute, she was quickly fast-tracked into an internship on the opening team at Matthew Jennings’ Boston restaurant Townsman. After almost four years of focusing on New England cuisine, she decided she wanted to continue her career closer to home. This resulted in working in partnership to help open M Tempura in Downtown Durham with Michael Lee as his Chef De Cuisine. She spent the next three and a half years learning about Japanese cuisine and diving into the art of fish and vegetable cookery. She pulls inspiration from what is locally available and believes deeply in supporting the ecosystem of farmer's and purveyor's in the surrounding area. Savannah is excited to take this next step with Glasshouse as it is an opportunity to do something new and exciting in the Research Triangle, an area that has been underserved in years past.
Ava has spent most of her adult life split between North Carolina and Denver, Colorado working in various bakeries and restaurants. Her time working under established chefs and farmers has inspired her obsession with sourdough baking, alternative grains as well as gluten free baking. In the summer of 2022 she moved back to her hometown in North Carolina to open Glasshouse Kitchen with longtime girl crush, best friend and twin flame, Chef Savannah Miller. After recently taking on a second project with the company, Ava aspires to be company baker for all of 629 group restaurants. And one day, the world.
