Signature Dish – 19 Hundred Restaurant and Lounge
BY Sarah Brehm
“Were bringing a big-city feel to Wilmington ” says 19 Hundred Restaurant and Lounge (1900 Eastwood Road Suite 2 910-509-2026) owner Brian Parke. 19 Hundred opened in February of this year and has been gaining popularity by leaps and bounds. Diners relax after a days work on comfortable couches or outside on the patio and order (small portioned) dishes designed to be shared. Try the Laughing Bird Shrimp Salad tossed with passion-fruit vinaigrette rice noodles peanuts and flavorful laughing bird shrimp that are raised on a sustainability farm off the coast of Belize. “You cant get anything like it here in Wilmington ” says executive chef Bobby Nichols. Only open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday with Sunday brunch starting at 11:30 a.m. 19 Hundred is a number you have to write down and remember.
