Q. Are there any Calabash-style diners in Wilmington? If not, what’s the closest in that category?
A. While you won’t find any sprawling buffets like those you see lining the streets of Myrtle Beach, S.C., in this area, if you’re looking for the distinctive type of fried seafood that originated in the small Brunswick County town of Calabash,you might get your fix with menu items at some of these places:
