The Dish on Durham

As previously noted in this blog, dining options on the Duke campus are a bit more limited over the summer (see Duke Dining summer 2008 schedule at Fortunately, our summer starters and Bar/Bri attendees are not doomed to starve!

If you missed the Independent Weekly’s May publication of “The Dish” (its twice-annual pullout section devoted to Triangle-area restaurants), you can still access all the reviews at In fact, the online dining guide offers more functionality than the print guide, since users can sort restaurant listings by type of cuisine, location, or keyword.

In addition, the Duke Law Epicurean Society maintains the blog Carpe Durham (, in which law students review local restaurants and even provide photos. The mostly-anonymous reviewers (identified only by initials) have continued their work into the summer.

Although the scope of the featured restaurants on both sites does expand well beyond Durham city limits, Duke Law students will find more than enough appetizing options nearby. Bon appetit!
