Food & Drink as an Art

Diversity drives Durham's culinary offerings as much as its proximity to great local producers and deep Southern food heritage. Visitors are as likely to find life-altering collard greens and barbecue as they are to tuck into a plate of authentic Peruvian charcoal-fired rotisserie chicken or enjoy an eight-course Japanese kaiseki tasting menu.

Locally produced beverages also give a nod to Durham's unique sense of community: there's a beer that promotes LGBT rights; mead that's made with locally produced fruits, honey, and botanicals; and a distillery that guarantees a living wage to all employees.
