Enjoy the mild early autumn weather and dine on the terrace at MarketPlace – the restaurant at the JB Duke Hotel. Executive Sous Chef Waitus Leake recommends this light-but-satisfying meal of Norwegian Steelhead salmon – a personal favorite – paired with rice “grits” from Columbia, South Carolina, and fresh grilled vegetables like squash, zucchini and bell peppers. “Good flavors and simple food are what we’re trying to do,” he says. Ask your friendly bartender for a pairing recommendation suited to your tastes; though, as General Manager Gregg Hilker points out, “Prosecco goes with anything.”

Located just off Cameron Boulevard on Duke University’s campus, the hotel is “a community establishment,” Gregg says. “The JB Duke Hotel is for everyone.” (Bonus: There’s complimentary parking!)

MarketPlace, JB Duke Hotel, $26
