Anything new and chowworthy in Corolla NC?

We come every year and are always looking for new spots. Anything since last year?

  1. Wes Stepp, of Red Sky Cafe in Duck, has opened Outer Banks Seafood Co. and has gotten some great reviews.

    Looking for breakfast, check out The Good Egg, the latest offering from Jim Douglas of Chili Peppers fame.

    Both can be found in Monteray Plaza.

    There's a new place next door to Metropolis Little Martini Bar & Bistro, where Gigi's used to be...I can't remember the name, but I've heard some good things about it---more simple, family oriented fare.

    Of course, there's the oldies, but goodies: the aforementioned Metropolis, Route 12, North Banks and Mike Dianna's Grill Room has started a "Take and Bake" service--great for feeding a large crowd!

    Happy Eating & enjoy your vacation...hope to see you on the beach!

      What are the best upscale restaurants in Corolla? I have read all the boards/posts but still have not been able to figure out what is what. It is for a special occasion.

        1. re: SweetPhyl

          For a group dinner for 16-18 people, with people ranging in age from 12 to 75, which restaurant would you recommend the most? Mike Dianna's Grill Room, The Outer Banks Seafood Co., Route 12, Ocean Front Grille or North Banks?

            Mike Dianna's Grill Room can handle a large group...the others, not so much.
