Hey, American Tobacco Campus – prepare for the pit master.
Barbecue great Ed Mitchell – the same Mitchell that led “The Pit” in Raleigh to acclaim – is opening a barbecue restaurant this fall between Durham Bulls Athletic Park and the Durham Performing Arts Center.
Simply called “’Que,” the restaurant will be located on the ground floor of the new Diamond View III building and feature patio seating.
The star? Mitchell’s whole-hog, pit-cooked barbecue.
Update on Pitmaster Ed Mitchell’s next gig. No word on when it opens, but a trip to Durham might be in order once it does.
Update: ‘Que is set to open in September, a few weeks after former restaurant partner Greg Hatem opens a Durham location of The Pit just a mile down the road.
