Great Wilmington Restaurants?
Figure 8 is a barrier island off the SE coast of NC. It's a long way from here to the Outer Banks.
Nearby, on the way to Wrightsville Beach, you might like Brasserie du Soleil, Portland Grill, and Jerry's.
On Highway 17 in Ogden, Marc's on Market is very reliable.
The private Figure 8 Yacht Club has very good food, but you must be with a member.
