Welcome to EAT THIS CITY, your tour of the best restaurants in one of our favorite cities, as chosen by a world-class chef.
This week, we’re jetting off to Durham, North Carolina! Home to the Bull Durham Blues Festival, the American Dance Festival, and the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, this is a city with an abiding love for the arts — the culinary arts very much included. Here to guide us on our tour of the city’s delectable delights is Executive Chef Josh Munchel of Counting House.
Located within 21c Museum Hotel Durham, Counting House puts modern spins on regional classics, utilizing local, seasonal ingredients. Chef Munchel, previously of Cincinnati’s Metropole, was instrumental in garnering the restaurant a place on Bon Appetit’s list of Best New Restaurants 2013. He brings the same passion and commitment to excellence at Counting House.
