Chef Marco Shaw of Portland’s Fife will soon be headed to North Carolina to help open Durham’s Eno Restaurant and Market. Shaw has been a major leader in the farm-to-table movement in Oregon, and Eno’s relationship with Coon Rock Farms should be a natural fit here in the Triangle. I had the pleasure of “hosting” Marco and his wife Julie when they scouted the area several months ago, and there is no doubt that their relocation will be a huge asset to us all. Shaw is from D.C. and has spent a lot of time vacationing at the Outer Banks, so he is familiar with North Carolina traditions (and having proclaimed Wilbur’s to be his favorite NC barbecue, he obviously has great taste, too).
