Sazon Latin American Table
Now open at Duke’s Brodhead Center, Sazon has a local link: Scott Morse, owner of local Durham pizza place Enzo’s, is operation Sazon and also another concept at Brodhead Center, Il Forno. Morse described the time and care going into the food at Sazon: “Our proteins marinate for 24 hours then slow roast 12 hours more,” he says.
Fresh Flavors of Latin America
All of the sauces for Sazon—cilantro aioli, guacamole and more—are made fresh twice a day, keeping the flavors spicy and fresh.
Crowding in for Beyu Blue coffee
One constant that college students will always need: coffee. And they got perked up even more by an on-campus scavenger hunt with prizes to lead them to Beyu Blue’s grand opening event.
The newest coffee house on campus also has a local connection, operated by Dorian Bolden, a 2002 Duke graduate and owner of Durham’s Beyu Caffe. And Beyu Blue was designed by another Duke graduate, Ted Van Dyk, owner of New City Design Group in Raleigh.
Duke’s color is played up to the max at Beyu Blue.
Red Mango Yogurt Café
NASCAR Champion Bobby Labonte revved up the grand opening for Red Mango, which is located in the Wilson Recreation Center and operated by Stevan Mosh and Dennis Blocker, who worked with the rec center students and staff to create a fresh idea in a small footprint.
Red Mango for healthy snacks
A national brand, Red Mango is known for the kind of snacks that give back: yogurt with probiotics, pressed juice and smoothies made with fresh fruits and veggies, skinny bagel sandwiches, flatbreads with less than 500 calories, salads, granola bars and wraps.
