AMY TORNQUIST, WATTS GROCERY

Who are your influences? Over the years, many folks in Durham and other places have shared recipes and stories that have become part of our repertoire. One of our early recipes was from Alfreda Kaplan, an old friend of my mother’s. If someone could only order one item off of your menu… Currently, I would say order the Kinston, North Carolina-inspired fish stew.

Why Durham? I was born about a block from my restaurant, so I can’t imagine working anywhere else. Durham has a varied culinary culture and a wonderfully vibrant arts scene.
