Foodie anniversary dinner in OBX

sarahinthecity | Aug 19, 2012 01:24 PM

I'm looking for the best restaurant in OBX for a 2nd anniversary dinner for two late-20s foodies staying in Duck this October. We're from Washington, DC and love avant garde, sophisticated, stylish restaurants. Nothing stuffy, stale, or old fashioned. We've been to OBX a number of times (have been to places like Flying Fish and Penguin Isle years ago, but they don't fit our tastes anymore).

The Left Bank looks good (though I'm always wary of restaurants in resorts). Blue Point and Colington Cafe look great menu-wise, but the pictures make them both look a little more casual. Pictures are hard to come by online. I'd love to get your opinions.

Also on my list: The Brine and Bottle, 1587, and Aqua.

We want to be able to celebrate like we would at a big city restaurant - realize that may not be quite possible, but this was the only time that our family could find for vacation, and we do love the Outer Banks.

Really appreciate your help!
