5 Year wedding anniversary after over 12 years together, my wife and i were hurricaned out last year for our outer banks trip and returned this year. On our anniversary, we decided to go to 42. We are still talking about the meal. I had grilled grouper over roasted tomatoes and spinach with a spinach/ shrimp tart swimming in wild mushroom sauce. For dessert, caramel/ macadamia nut tart with chocolate.
We will undoubtedly drive the four hours and get a hotel for a night just to come back to this restaurant. We talked throughout the meal about other places formerly on the top of our list of best all time. Meridian 42's atmosphere, service and above all else FOOD is amazing. NO PLACE on the outer banks comes close... avoid the fried seafood and casually thrown together meals elsewhere... come to the best.
Pros: Excellent, Extraordinary, Outstanding
