Bistro By The Sea - Morehead City, NC

Gone Fishin’ & Thx. for 2016! See u on Tues., Feb. 7!

Looking forward to new energy for 2017 and adventures/dishes to share with you all when we reopen on Tues., Feb. 7 at 5 p.m.  Since opening in 1993, we have taken Jan. 1-Feb. 6 off to renew, discover and repair our building and our souls.  I cannot lie…every year gets more challenging due to our physical age…Even though I feel as if I am still in my 30’s, my body is telling me different!

Thanks for your support though some of my darkest moments this year with the tragic loss of my mother and the serious injury of my sister.  Your positive energy and love kept me together.

Love & Light,
