Saw a piece in Southern Living on the Curiosity Shoppe Cafe and Bar in Washington, NC. My wife and I went to the coast a couple of weekends ago and stopped there for dinner. Wow, didn't know there was anything this good east of Raleigh! Pumpkin soup and grouper with backfin crab enchnted my wife, and I had a beef consomme and entre of Chilpotle shrimp. The quaint old timey surroundings are just as the article showed. Its only a little over an hour out of the way to our place at Atlantic Beach, and worth every minute. We found their website at www.curiousityshoppecafe.com.
We had never been to Washington before, and will go back in the daytime to explore what seem to be a raft of galleries, big waterfront and huge historic district.
