Watts New? Watts Grocery in Durham, That’s Watt

Amy Tornquist’s new venture, Watts Grocery is now open in Durham. This new venture by the former chef of Duke’s highly regarded Nasher Museum Cafe has garnered lots of anticipatory discussion on Chowhound and other sites. The menu clearly reflects a contemporary Southern cuisine with an emphasis on local ingredients. Hell, the fact that the bar will be serving deep-fried chicken gizzards makes me want to make the trek to Durham right away.
