We hope that you and your family were kept safe during the prolonged weather of Hurricane Florence and continue to stay safe as the aftermath is felt throughout the state. If you would like to donate to some of the affected areas please visit Locals Seafood’s GoFundMe page to help supply the down east communities (east Carteret County) with immediate clean up supplies. You can also head to the Core Sound Museum website for more ways to help.
It’s officially the last week of Summer. As we say farewell, take a moment to enjoy the last bites of the season and welcome some NEW features showcasing the early bounty of the season to come.
Enjoy our NC Big Eye Tuna Carpaccio… this delicacy from the sea will be served with Crispy Artichokes, Pickled Shishito Peppers, Toasted Cornbread, Sriracha Aioli and Local Microgreens.
Try our Fried NC Okra or Green Bean Stir-fry. Enjoy one or both as the perfect addition to compliment any meal.
Tomorrow, we will be receiving fresh NC Grouper from Locals Seafood. Call or come by to see how Chef Tom will be preparing one of your favorite local fish.
A lot of you have been asking Chef Tom to create new Ice Cream flavors. This week we will be offering homemade Coffee Ice Cream with a Chocolate-Covered Espresso Bean. This might be one of our best flavors yet, so come try it for yourself!
Keep an eye out this weekend for a NEW dessert to tantalize your taste buds, Chef Tom’s version of Banana Pudding, featuring homemade Vanilla Wafers and Pastry Cream, Freshly Sliced Bananas and Toasted Italian Meringue. Our take on this southern classic is sure to be a sweet ending to a great night out.
