Hello, 4 of us will be visiting Durham in a few weeks. This'll be my first visit and the priority is to try stuff that Durham/Raleigh does well and NYC does not! Things like BBQ, southern food, biscuits, etc. I read through old posts and have come up with some places. Would love some feedback as well as help in plugging in the holes. We eat everything!
1. Need to decide on a place for southern food. Piedmont in Durham was mentioned but it has closed. Any others that I could check out? I saw some in Raleigh - Second Empire, Stanbury, Mandolin, and Crawford and Sons. Any thoughts about those?
2. For biscuits, I have Rise Southern Biscuits & Righteous Chicken in Durham and Sunrise in Chapel Hill. I've read the latter being discussed a fair amount but not a lot about the former. Opinions?
3. Plan to check out Picnic for BBQ. Also have The Pit, The Pig (Vietnamese pork cheek), Hillsborough BBQ Company and Johnson's Family BBQ on my list but I don't think we'll have the time to do more than 1.
4. What are some of the must haves at Chicken Hut? If it's fried chicken, should I go here or would Dame's Chicken and Waffles be a better choice. Open to other suggestions too!
5. Have some bars and breweries on the agenda: Raleigh: Brewery Bhavana, Durham: Barrel Culture, Hi-Wire brewing, Sam's bottle shop.
Anything else that is a must do for a visitor from NYC? Thank you everyone for your help!
