34 North Front Street Wilmington, NC (910) 763-5379 www.theeatspot.com The Eat Spot, located at the corner of Princess and Front streets downtown, marries comfort and gastronomy, providing Wilmington an “eat spot” of contemporary Southern cuisine. Jason Godwin opened the restaurant last spring to many favorable reviews and will join Encore Restaurant Week for his sophomore run. From piled-high sandwiches (try their delightful fried egg and bacon) to hearty appetizers (portobello mushroom fries are the best in town) to delectable salads and sinful desserts (repeat after me: sweet-potato bread pudding), they’ll pack in a crowd of happy diners, for sure.
