Named after the old Watts St. Grocery that chef Amy Tornquist patronized as a child growing up in Durham, Watts Grocery is a restaurant serving dishes inspired by and sourced from the local area.
Bon Appétit wrote that Tornquist is "known for her distinctive North Carolina-style cuisine; she makes her own bourbon-laced pimento cheese at Durham’s hottest restaurant." Other options include bourbon-brined pork loin and pepper jelly-glazed duck breast.
