Food Scene
This is one of our very favorite places to eat. The kitchen is so creative and the food is consistently fabulous. It's a laid-back atmosphere without pretentiousness. That said, don't let the name fool you -- this isn't gourmet with respect to the atmosphere, presentation, and, thankfully, price! The food is outstanding. *Please note: Sealevel is temporarily closed while ownership transitions — we anticipate it being just as fabulous when it reopens*

This is a Wilmington favorite. We are known for chowing down on their Thai Me Up burrito without cheese, with black beans, marinated tofu, and extra sauce inside that beautiful cylinder of goodness.

Unique Latin American food you won’t find anywhere else in town! Presentation of food is beautiful! Located on the northern side of downtown Wilmington, it’s a short drive from our place. Be aware the dining room is on the smaller side so you may have to wait to be seated — or grab a seat at the bar!

Indochine is a very popular Thai restaurant that has won numerous awards. They are open for lunch, close in the afternoon, and then reopen for dinner. We highly recommend getting there early (before they open for dinner) to avoid long waits! Or if you don’t mind waiting, grab a drink at the bar and enjoy the outdoor garden.

We like to support this co-op. Go for it! They have so much to offer. We love picking up some tasty desserts from in front of the coffee, juice, and smoothie bar. They also have a great hot bar. Check out the farmers market on Saturday mornings — best one in town (much better than the downtown FM)!

We were so stoked to have randomly stumbled across this place. It's very stylish on the inside and the drinks and treats have always satisfied. On the way to Wrightsville Beach.
