Mark meets his namesake: Superstar chef Keith Rhodes

Rhodes and Rhodes (Distant Relations)

There is one superstar chef in Wilmington, North Carolina and that is the owner/chef of this fine establishment Chef Keith Rhodes (no direct relation to one of the founders of this sight). He is competely deserving of this title because of his mastery of one small Princess Street venue.

We had not seen much trumpeting of local food in Wilmington during our time here. However, the jewel of a restaruant called Catch practices an appreciatioon of local seafood and responsible fishing. When we were there the menu had Sneads Ferry shrimp (about 25 miles from Wilmington) and North Carolina catfish.

Lynn and I ate lunch there and thoroughly enjoyed the very fine fried NC Oyster seafood platter as well as the Buttermilk Fried Calamari. The atmosphere seemed right as well ( a rarity in WIlmington) with its surfboards and decorative fish. .
