The Durham food scene get more national press.

Bon Appetit magazine named Rose’s Meat Market and Sweet Shop among the top 50 best new restaurants in the country for 2014. About this bakery, butcher shop and take-out restaurant, the magazine wrote: “Though the menu is abbreviated, the fare is stellar.” Owners Katie and Justin Meddis opened their shop last year at 121 N. Gregson St. She’s the baker and he’s the butcher.

And then there was another story in The New York Times about Durham’s Central Park District. About this revitalization of this corner of Durham, the story says, “Now there’s live music, top-notch barbecue, fair trade coffee, and even valet parking on a block that five years ago was deserted after dark.” Among those mentioned in that short piece: Geer Street Garden, Cocoa Cinnamon, The Pit, Fullsteam Brewery and Motorco Music Hall.

These news stories continue a drumbeat of national coverage, primarily by The New York Times, of the food scene across the Triangle but mainly in Durham. To read those stories, go HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE. (And HERE is the Bon Appetit story that I believe started that drumbeat.)
