Dining

Fresh food galore, a pinch of international flavor and a whole lot of Southern charm. This is the recipe that makes downtown Wilmington's dining scene so delicious. Menus offer every heart's delight, whether it's a platter of jumbo, fried shrimp or pulled-pork barbecue nachos dripping with cheese. Share creamy crab dip on a romantic riverfront balcony or gather the family for pizza topped any which way. International tastes range from proper English tea to French steak frites, German schnitzel, Japanese sushi, Turkish kabobs and Thai curry -- just to name a few. And don't forget breakfast. Downtown Wilmington is known for the South's tastiest morning meals. Whatever you choose, expect the best. Farmers and fishermen fill restaurant larders with lush produce, prime meats and succulent seafood, all turned into irresistible combinations by downtown Wilmington's top chefs. Of course, every meal has a sweet ending. Red velvet cupcakes, Grand Marnier cream crepes, bourbon pecan pie anyone? Better request an extra spoon.
