The story of the restaurant industry in Durham is also the story of a once prosperous tobacco town that suffered through a long decline only to undergo a stunning rebirth. Legendary barbecue restaurants such as Little Acorn, Bullock's and Dillard's and small caf's like Lewis' served generations of tobacco industry workers. Establishments such as Annamaria's and the Ivy Room were aimed at the growing college student population. More recently, Nana's, Magnolia Grill and other award-winning eateries have led a restaurant renaissance. This book profiles fifty longtime restaurants that have helped shape the city's dining scene--from small takeout sandwich shops to the finest of fine dining. Local authors Chris Holaday and Patrick Cullom tell the story of Durham's unique food history.
