We had a great time at Carolina Farm Trust‘s dinner at Vin Rouge supporting farmers from Durham Roots Farmers’ Market including Green Button Farm and Carolina Farmhouse Dairy. The two combined created a killer harrissa braised pork shank for our third course. We were adventurous with shrimp at Piedmont‘s Season of the Sea dinner featuring Greensboro’s Jay Pierce from The Marshall Free House. The amuse-bouche – cleverly left off the menu – was a fried shrimp head. It was so yum!
After a grueling run with the Fullsteam Ahead! Run Club, Chapel Hill Magazine Executive Editor Jessica Stringer and friends treated themselves to a beer at The Federal.
We visited the new Motto for an interview and photographed and tasted some of their Ginger Flower cocktail (complete with whole candied hibiscus). The coolest thing about this drink? They have it on tap.
Kanki Restaurant is rolling out their new fall menu early next week, and so you’ll need to visit soon to try their sensational summer menu apps, like the tuna poké (above) and pork belly sliders (below) – they both have a great kick!
Last week’s opening party for “Southern Accent,” the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University‘s newest exhibit, was incredible! It’s on view till Jan. 8, but you’ll want to come back multiple times to really take it all in.
