1900 Restaurant & Lounge is a chic little dinner and late-night destination that has an eclectic Downtown Wilmington vibe, but which is found a little off the beaten path in a commercial shopping center along Eastwood Road. Boasting a wide menu that changes with the season, as well as plenty of cool cocktails and drinks, 1900 Restaurant & Lounge is a fine destination for an evening on the town without venturing into the heart of the downtown area.
The menu is divided into small plates and entrees, and changes every few months as new ingredients and flavors are discovered or become readily available. The items on the menu are always a little creative but feature all the classics, and can include traditional favorites like burger sliders, fried calamari, and tuna tartare, as well as more unique selections like shrimp tempura, stuffed bell pepper, pork belly, and Escargot in mushroom caps. The entrees are just as familiar and oh-so-slightly creative, with specialties like rack of lamb, crab cakes, and Pasta St. Barts with shrimp, clams, spinach and mushrooms, ensuring that patrons can appease either a classic or a more eclectic palette. With a full line-up of accompanying drinks, and a cozy atmosphere, 1900 Restaurant & Lounge is both convenient and inviting for a refined and varied meal.
