Kornerstone Bistro is a fun and slightly elevated little restaurant along Market Street that specializes in Italian, Mediterranean, and Latin cuisine. Boasting heaping plates of fresh pasta, and eye-catching appetizers that pair perfect with a martini, Kornerstone Bistro is suitable for gatherings with friends, families, or a romantic dinner for two.

The interior is warm and just a little dark, with stone-lined walls and a separate bar that’s popular with the martini crowd. The fare is equally warm and enticing, with vast menus dedicated to lunch, dinner, and an expansive Sunday Brunch buffet. All menus boast highlights from Greek, Mediterranean and Italian cuisine and flavors, with lighter fare such as risotto, baked meatballs, and Greek salads, and more hearty entrees including a range of wood fired 10” and 12” pizzas. The pastas are especially crave-worthy and include classics like sausage and peppers, and spaghetti and meatballs, as well as more unusual selections like Autumn Penne with ground pork and a creamy pumpkin puree. With an equally mouthwatering collection of entrees, including steaks, seafood, and traditional Italian dishes like Beef Bourguignon and chicken parmesan, patrons can feast on a completely filling world of global fare done right. Save room for dessert, and an after dinner drink, and discover why Kornerstone Bistro is satisfying Wilmington’s craving for fresh and globally-inspired fare.

Masonboro Island Coastal Estuarine Reserve

Masonboro Island Coastal Estuarine Reserve

Situated on the edge of the Cape Fear Coastline in between the bustling towns of Wrightsville Beach and Carolina Beach, the Masonboro Island Estuarine Reserve is a unique slice of undeveloped and natural barrier island shoreline that’s an important habitat for countless coastal species. Hard to reach but wonderfully isolated, visitors who make a trip to this literal deserted island will be rewarded with great shelling, beautiful landscapes, and miles of beaches to go around.
