The NeMa Eatery and Lounge is one of the newest hot spots to hit the Downtown Wilmington scene, and its ultra-modern menu is already turning heads among Cape Fear visitors and local alike. Featuring progressive spins on familiar foods, adventurous patrons can enjoy a truly creative and unique dining experience with every visit.

NeMa is set apart in many diners’ minds for its unique menu that can cater to vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free diets, with menu items like pizza with a cauliflower crust and organic grass-fed beef to perfectly suit virtually all food ideologies. The lunch and dinner menu is stuffed with a huge range of options for all palettes too, like sandwiches, salads, soups, appetizers, pizzas, burgers, and sides, (be sure and try the fries), but the menu really shines with its more unusual fare selections. Newcomers might want to sample the skewers with curry sauce or mango chutney, or the seared raviolis (which are similar to pot stickers), which are both big local favorites. Best of all, all the menu items are extremely budget-friendly, allowing everyone to sample a posh new restaurant in the heart of the Downtown.

Fresh, flavorful and wholly unique, the NeMa Eatery and Lounge is elevating the local dining scene to new and all-around creative new heights.

Wilmington Railroad Museum

With Wilmington's distinguished history as a thriving port community, few folks recognize at first that part of this reputation stemmed from its legacy as a bustling railroad center. In fact, for well over 125 years, railroading was the top industry in this town, surpassing importing and exporting goods along the Cape Fear River, (although the two businesses were certainly intertwined.)
