Delicious Dining in Durham

Durham, N.C. is a town best known for being the home of Duke University, an elite private college. But the food served in Durham can taste pretty elite too.

This article in the New York Times profiles several restaurants in Durham that are relying largely on locally sourced ingredients to produce excellent food. Many of these eateries have a very casual feel, but the food served inside is worthy of lavish spaces. The Times writes:

Watts Grocery, for example, looks like an upscale sports bar, but it tastes like a Southern-artisanal Union Square Cafe.
