In between collecting data and writing papers, we do have to eat. Happily, Durham is a great place to do that. There are lots of really creative and exciting restaurants ranging from the casual to the refined, many of them with a focus on updating southern cuisine. We have a great farmer's market, and many restaurants place a lot of emphasis on local sourcing of there food. A fleet of food trucks peddle everything from dumplings to pizza to raw foods. No wonder Durham was recently named Tastiest Town by Southern Living magazine!
This brief tour of Durham in the NY Times gives some sense of how much is going on here. And they didn't even do it during baseball season. I'll also say that 36 hours is not nearly enough time to visit all of the great places to eat in town. But they do mention some of my favorites.
