Chef Ricky Moore, a New Bern native and former Top Chef contestant, has dipped in and out of the Triangle restaurant scene for several years. He has been the executive chef at Glasshalfull in Carrboro. He has run several kitchens for Triangle restaurateur Giorgios Bakatsias. He taught cooking classes at the now-closed Bickett Market in Raleigh.
Moore has surfaced again. This time, he has opened a 250-square-foot seafood shack in Durham called Salt Box. He offers fresh seafood, spice griddled or fried, alone, on a sandwich or as a plate with two sides. It's takeout only.
Salt Box is located at 608 N. Mangum St. and is open noon-8 p.m. or until the fish runs out, Tues.-Sat. For more information, call 919-908-8970 or go to facebook.com/SaltboxSeafoodJoint.
