Bento Box Included on Our State Magazine Destination Dining Guide

Did you know The Bento Box was featured in Our State Magazine’s Destination Dining Guide: Eastern North Carolina? “Along the coast, much of the seafood you’ll encounter is of the fried variety, but at The Bento Box, Chef Lee Grossman showcases fish in its purest, most unadulterated form.

One question — What’s fresh? — will guide your order, and soon you’ll be dining on delicate slices of yellowfin tuna from the Outer Banks or paper-thin slices of wahoo caught just a few miles away. The Catch of the Day Tempura Roll — lightly-fried seafood rolled with avocado and lettuce, and wrapped in a paprika soy sheet — will never disappoint.” Thank you for the inclusion on this list of stellar restaurants across southeastern North Carolina, Our State!...

Oh, BTW, packed on a Wednesday night.guests were friendly as well.” Weyden of Poughkeepsie, NY: “Wilmington should have better restaurants than it does — it has a lot of 3-star restaurants with serviceable food and 4-star restaurants with notable food. But it has very few really good restaurants, and the Bento Box is one of the best. We went last night. As we usually do, we sat at the bar and asked the owner-chef to prepare us (my wife and I) a $100 plate of sushi — his choice (although we did tell him to avoid a few items and to please include a salmon roe). The results were delicious. He put a different sauce on each one, which worried me at first because I tend to be a purist (or...
