Midtown Deli is a fresh little sandwich shop that’s found just south of the Downtown Wilmington area along 17thstreet. Boasting a full menu of slightly upscale sandwiches, salads, and other fare that’s worthy of an elite delicatessen or local bistro, Midtown Deli will be a casual yet slightly different go-to for an easy lunch in-house, delivered, or on the go.

The menu extends for five pages, and features a wealth of fresh deli fare that can cater to any sized appetite. Patrons who’d prefer something light can select from the Midtown Greenery salads, which includes fresh tuna salad, chicken salad, egg salad, and a locally acclaimed shrimp salad. For something more substantial, peruse the long list of sandwiches, which range from the classics like the Turkey Club and the roast beef with cheddar cheese and horseradish sauce, to the more unusual like the corned beef or turkey with sauerkraut, or the Gobbler with fresh turkey slices, cranberry sauce, and Swiss cheese. All delicious, and made with Boar’s Head meats and fresh veggies, Midtown Deli will make any lunchtime patron garner a new appreciation for the classic, but slightly elevated, sandwich shop. Catering can also be available for large parties.

Bellamy Mansion

When driving or strolling past the Bellamy Mansion, visitors are often transported back to a different time, when the Antebellum South was in full prestige, and Wilmington was a bustling, pre-Civil War port town. Located on Market Street, just barely on the outskirts of Wilmington's busy downtown center, the Bellamy Mansion is a famed attraction that easily lures in history buffs, garden lovers, and anyone who wants a genuine look into Wilmington's genteel southern past.
