Wilmington visitors can enjoy a full taste of Asia without ever leaving the downtown region with a stop at the Sunny Sushi & Lounge. Located along Front Street next to a collection of cool bars, shops and destinations, this cozy lounge is a fine spot to relax, enjoy a drink, and dive into a wealth of traditional Japanese and Thai cuisine.

The interior is small but relaxed, with a line of cozy tables and booths, and a long bar that offers ample room for larger parties. The menu is just as eye-catching, with a host of Happy Hour specials, rolls, Japanese entrees, Thai specialties, Sushi / Sahami dinners, combination specials, and enticing Super Baked fusion combos. The “baked” rolls are a unique place to start, with options like the Blue Heaven with spicy crab mix, cream cheese, asparagus, sweet potato, and avocado topped with slow baked blue crab mix, cream sauce and sweet glaze. Traditionalists, however, will want to stick with the entrees, like the teriyaki or hibachi dinners which can include proteins like NY strip, shrimp and scallops, or fresh veggies. A little elevated and always inviting for a long meal with friends, Sunny Sushi & Lounge is a popular spot for stylish vacationers to enjoy a creative spin on Asian fare.

Bijou Park

Bijou Park

Bijou Park is a hidden gem of a "blink and you'll miss it" attraction in Wilmington, and is a perfect spot for weary shoppers and strollers to find a quiet bench, stretch out their legs, and relax. Located in a rare gap in between downtown buildings on 225 N Front St, the park straddles the heart of Downtown Wilmington and a Riverfront parking area, but the section in between is quiet, peaceful, and buffered from the sound of the downtown traffic by the two tall but historic buildings on either side.
