New pasta restaurant on the 'rise' in Durham

Posted June 10, 2014

The Rollout pasta restaurant plans to open in the Durham area soon. Until then, check them out during pop-up dinners every Wednesday night this summer at Rise. (Image from Facebook)

— Tom Ferguson of Rise Biscuits and Donuts and Seth Kingsbury of Pazzo are starting a quick service pasta restaurant called The Rollout. 

While they are finalizing plans and setting up their new venture, they are doing pop-up pasta dinners this summer at Rise. Every Wednesday from 5-8 p.m., you can get a taste of their hand-rolled pastas and focaccia bread! Everything is packaged for takeout, but you can sit outside and enjoy the food if the weather is nice. You will, however, need to bring your own beverages. 

The first dinner is this week and here's the menu: 

  • Braised Beef Shortrib Agnolotti with Pomadoro ($11.95)
  • 
Goat Cheese Ricotta and Spring Pea Ravioli with a Marscapone Cream Sauce ($9.95
)
  • Bolognese Lasagna with Bechamel ($11.95
)
  • Strozzapreti with a Pistachio-Spinach Pesto ($9.95)
  • Caesar Salad ($2.95)

  • Burrata Salad with Tomatoes and Arugula ($4.95)

No word on where The Rollout will be located, but you can follow their progress on Twitter and Facebook.

    The funding follows the crime history, so Cary well deserved the unit.

    And you're being a hypocrite by doing the same thing the Durham bashers are doing by making your sarcastic comment about Cary/Morrisville. Pedophiles exist everywhere, even outside of Morrisvile and Cary. Cary just happens to have a cyber crimes unit, so it's easier to catch the creeps.

    If this was in Cary/Morrisville, it would be, Can I take a picture of your kids, while you eat, it's for our wall. NO, it's for the creeps wall that will be passing the pic around the internet. Raleigh, please don't mind the shooting outside, we don't pay attention to it, because being shot here, doesn't hurt and kill, because we're not like other cities. Please carry on with your dining.

    Why is there so much bashing of Durham, like yesterday and the internet grocer, and it's by the same people and even more. Don't you all notice it's just you, but the business and restaurants are still coming, because they have done the due diligence to observe the best location for their business. How bout you all concern yourself with the shooting in North Raleigh last night, and the new charges of more child crimes in Cary. THAT IS ON THIS WEBSITE!!!! Be happy for business in the Triangle, not biased because another location was chosen. When business looks to come from other states, they look at the TRIANGLE, not North Raleigh, 5 Points, Cary, etc... Stop bashing and scrutinizing what you weren't chosen for, and recognize your own problems and be happy for what you do have.

    I work in Durham, so I'm there quite frequently. I was more uncomfortable walking around downtown Raleigh yesterday around lunch time than I ever have been in Durham.

    There are seedy parts in every city. You'd be remiss to go walking around in any of them. Avoid the parts and you'll be fine.

    "Culture? Durham!

    Oh, man, thanks for the belly laugh!"

    There's so much to brag about Durham really where you even start? Great history? Duke Homestead, Bennet place, West Point on the Eno, Stagville Plantation. The rich culture? jazz festivals, plays, blues festivals, symphony concerts, art exhibitions.

    I can only guess that some might be blinded by hate if that's the case it might be better for those to stay away you won't know what your missing and I think everyone is ok with that as it is for the best.

    I'm done defending Durham to people like this (they aren't going away). We don't need them. Durham is doing just fine without them...What bugs me is when I moved here 8 years ago, realtors were pushing me towards Raleigh/Cary. I think it still happens, but the right people find their way here. I'm glad I did...

    I'm opening a business in Durham, plain and simple, because the people of Durham support local more than any other part of the triangle. That is why you see all these new ventures popping up here over other areas. Durhamites are more likely to solicit a bakery like Rise, Scratch, or Loaf on a Saturday morning than sit in a drive-thru at dunkin donuts. Eating out typically includes avoiding the chains and supporting our local restauranteurs. I will head over to Rise for fresh pasta, bring my bottle of red, and eat outside in their patio chairs before going to Maggianos.
