Riley, NC – It all started in 2012 on Mangam Street in Durham. A small joint. Then the second place. First place closed due to progress. And now, the name Best Chef: Southeast at the 2022 James Baird Awards. Congratulations to Ricky Moore and his Salt Box Sea Food Joint For much more deserving praise. Couldn’t be with a better, more deserving person in the industry. And food; if you don’t have it, you’re losing. The problem now is to kill the mob there. Trust me, it’s worth it. Check the salt box here. Congratulations to Chetty Kumar of Garland and Shannon Haley of Twenty Six for being finalists!
