Chef Ricky Moore and Saltbox Seafood recognized as fresh local seafood with a gourmet flair

"In an unassuming seafood joint just off Mangum Street in downtown Durham, chef Ricky Moore serves up fresh local seafood with a gourmet flair. At first glance, you wouldn’t suspect the modest kitchen contained a talented, globally-trained chef. But at first bite, you’d have no doubt someone special was crafting that food."

Truth be told, Durham just might be our favorite point on the Triangle. If you’re making a trip to Durham, this is your guide to Durham, with the best places to eat, stay and play while you’re there"

Picnic recognized as a top NC barbecue spot

"the menu at Picnic is more diverse than most barbecue joints. There’s excellent fried chicken dredged in smoked buttermilk, blackened catfish, and a burger topped with pimento cheese. There’s a little something for everyone, and lots of menu items that help offset the cost of those heritage breed hogs. The generously stuffed sandwich is still a good deal at $8.95, which includes a side."
