I look forward to this every year! Annually, local Wilmington, NC magazine Encore accepts nominations for the ultimate “Best of…” list. Over 130 titles are up for grabs and are chosen based on a public vote. Categories range from Arts & Entertainment to Goods & Services and my personal favorite: Food & Beverage!! I always take the opportunity to vote for my favorite places.
You can check out the extensive 2016 winner’s list here. If you’re wondering what my thoughts are on the list, I’m happy to report that these places are 100% Lenzie Dae approved!
Best Diner: Dixie Grill (Downtown ILM)
Best Place for a First Date: The Little Dipper (Downtown ILM)
Best New Restaurant: Beer Barrio (Downtown ILM)
Best Thai, Best Outdoor Dining, Best Overall Restaurant, & Best Atmosphere: Indoshine (YES, those are 4 different awards!)
Pretty excited to check out some of the places we have not tried yet or haven’t visited in a while! Stay tuned…we actually went to one of these spots today! Review to come soon!
Congratulations to all the winners!
