Meridian 42 is up there on my list of places to eat in the Outer Banks. They have tasty tapas and fresh ingredients, accompanied by a nice wine list. The service is friendly and the atmosphere is upscale, but relaxed. My only complaint is that some of our food was served a wrong temperatures--dishes were not as warm as they should be, cool dishes on warm plates, that sort of thing. Overall, though, I would definitely recommend it.
