North Carolina

  1. Intimate Dining

Nothing says romance like an enchanting dinner by candlelight.  The Table at Inner Banks serves farm to fork dishes in a casually upscale and intimate setting.  It’s warm and inviting converted carriage house sets the stage for farm to fork dinners and a Sunday Jazz Brunch. For a weekday getaway, join the locals for Tapa Tuesday where a small plate menu paired with half off wines is a popular choice. If getting away midweek appeals to you, “Thursday is the New Friday” is a nice way to start an early weekend. Most Thursdays there is live jazz music and new menu day where the chef is pairing new entrees with local favorites. If a special occasion truly set apart is what you desire, don’t miss Executive Chef JD Fairman’s Tasting Dinner. Paired with a predinner sunset, the evening is almost complete!  For some fresh and local seafood, stop by Waterman’s Grill, another great spot serving a variety of mouthwatering cuisine.  If you’re looking for somewhere with a more casual vibe, try 309 Bistro and Spirits in downtown Edenton, where they serve traditional American cooking in a warm and friendly setting. Stay over a few days, and experience them all!
