Seeking one lunch in Durham, NC
Yep, looking for one lunch recommendation. Wish I would be around for dinner, as I see good options, but most of those places are closed for lunch--or only offer sandwiches. I'm looking for a place that shows its farm-to-table goodness at lunch as well as dinner. Or, just a unique, not-to-be-missed place unlike anything I can find anywhere else. Willing to drive to Chapel Hill, but not much further.
Watt's is very good. Rue Cler does a nice lunch. Piedmont did (and may still, I haven't had lunch there since the ownership change).
Crook's Corner's new Atrium cafe in Chapel Hill has a nice lunch but may be a bit sandwich heavy for what you're looking for.

If you're interested in bbq, Allen and Son is one of the best in NC and is located just off I-40, 20 minutes or less from Durham. Another option would be one of Durham's excellent mexican restaurants such as Los Comales or Taqueria La Vaquita.
Taqueria La Vaquita

I've been dying to try Dame's Chicken and Waffles even if it's not farm to table! Let us know where you end up...
