Zweli Brings Ekhaya, Zimbabwean Flavor to Durham

Durham Chef Zweli Williams, voted best chef by INDY Week readers in 2021, opens Ekhaya at American Tobacco campus in December 2022.

Alliance Architecture integrated the Zimbabwean way into the designs of the restaurant space for the Chef.

“Ekhaya in Bantu is more than a word, it is a feeling, a sense of being ‘at home’ wherever you are,” says Chef Zweli Williams. “These feelings of comfort, support, and familiarity are what we strive to bring to each diner via our menu and dining experience. Whether it is something brand new or a new take on something familiar, we want each and every visitor to leave our restaurant feeling as if they have returned home.”
