“When we opened 411 West, we wanted to offer fresh, housemade pastas, so we invested in a pasta extruding machine from Italy,” says Chapel Hill Restaurant Group’s Greg Overbeck. “But that was only the first step. We needed innovative dishes that would set us apart from other restaurants that offered pasta, and our Executive Chef Susan Pickford presented the ‘Whole-Wheat Fett.’ I was blown away and immediately knew we would be offering a dish that would be strikingly different from any pasta dish in the Triangle. My kids and I still order it on a regular basis, and I love it as much as I did the first time I tried it almost 25 years ago.”
