Durham: Good food near Duke Hospital?

meatn3 | Jun 12, 2008 03:07 PM

I have friends who will be staying at the Ronald McDonald House next week while their son is operated on at Duke.

Looking for healthy, fresh options fairly close by that can be easily found by a preoccupied person not familiar with town. Modest cost is helpful too - his health issues have had a significant impact on an already lean budget.

I'm in Raleigh & hope to get there daily & will bring some eats. I also have a number of shelf stable items ready for them too. But I wanted to have some suggestions for restaurants/deli's, etc. - sometimes you just have to get away from a hospital for an hour to clear your mind. My Durham knowledge is just not broad enough for this. I am also unsure if there is kitchen space at the RMcD house - if so I can bring meals to reheat.

Appreciate any thoughts you have.
