Tokyo 101 is a fun go-to for lunch or dinner after a full morning or afternoon of shopping in Wilmington’s expansive Mayfaire complex. Featuring a wealth of sushi and Japanese fare in a slightly upscale and elevated environment, Tokyo 101 takes casual Asian cuisine to new and somewhat refined heights.

The menu is divided into sushi rolls, appetizers, soups and salads, and lunch and dinner sections, and each category has its own mouth-watering temptations. Lunch and dinner guests can start off a multi-course meal with a fresh starter like baked mussels, edamame, or Panko-crusted soft shell crab, or can opt for something lighter like a spicy crab salad, cucumber salad, or a hot bowl of Miso soup. The sushi menu is just as enticing, with several different varieties to choose from including local specialties like the NC Deluxe Roll with shrimp and red snapper tempura, and the daily lunch specials are ideal for a midday meal, with special Hibachi entrees and distinct Bento boxes. When in doubt, opt for the Bento box, which boasts Hibachi, a salad with ginger dressing, fried rice, and 2 side items (including sushi rolls) for a full taste of what Tokyo 101 has to offer. Popular with the local lunchtime crowd, Tokyo 101 is giving Mayfaire shoppers a solid reason to feast on Japanese 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.

Henrietta III

Henrietta III

It's hard to miss the Henrietta III as she cruises along Downtown Wilmingtontowards the open waters of the Cape Fear River. As the largest cruise boat in North Carolina, and the state's only true stern wheel riverboat, the Henrietta III has become a staple of the downtown scene in Wilmington, adding to its historic charm and southern flair for fun.
