Durham: The South’s Tastiest Town

Did you know that Southern Living named Durham the South’s Tastiest Town? They described Durham as “a scrappy scene of artisans devoted to coffee beans, brews, and the craft of humble foods.”

Fortunately for residents of Durham’s downtown, contemporary, luxury condominiums at The Willow, the food scene is all around you. For coffee beans, The Willow is a short quarter mile from Durham’s EverLou Coffee Co. and Jetplane Coffee. Home-grown brews can be found in abundance at Hi-Wire, Ponysaurus, and Fullsteam Brewery.

For the tastiest that Durham has to offer, head just a few blocks into the heart of downtown Durham to enjoy local and international cuisine. We recommend starting with the first restaurant in the South to focus on fatta a mano—handmade pasta, at Mother’s and Son’s Trattoria. For phenomenal Parisian cuisine, Rue Cler is only a quarter mile from the residents of The Willow. M Pocha and the rest of the incredible M restaurants that call Durham home are our top choice for Korean and Japanese culinary experiences.

At The Willow, when you aren’t in the mood to cook in your beautifully-equipped kitchen, the hardest part of the meal will be choosing where to eat dinner!
