Local 22 Kitchen and Bar - Durham, NC

ToothTooth Oct 9, 2013 06:53 AM

Seems Giorgios Bakatsias has flipped the space that used to be Vita into a new concept called Local 22 Kitchen & Bar. The website still appears to be a work in progress, but I gotta say that I won't miss Vita alot and I'm looking forward to trying out Local 22.

    It will be interesting for sure. My two faves from him are still Vin Rouge and well Kipos for now.

      If you haven't been to Bin 54 yet, plan to go for a special occasion. It's by far the best of the lot, though I enjoyed my visit to Kipos recently very much.

        I like all three a lot, and agree that the Bin needs to be on bf's list.

          Wife doesn't do much in the way of beef. Sorry but for the money I'll go to Heron's which isn't GB restaurant, but still.

            I don't do much in the way of beef either, and I love the place. The tuna tartar (which she probably needs to avoid right this moment) is great; lots of the apps are great. The duck can be very nice. The side of truffled mac and cheese is pretty killer.
