There’s been something exciting brewing in Edenton for the last few months.
One thing that consistently surprises our guests is the food they eat.
They expect memorable places to stay and history they can’t get anywhere else.
But, more and more, they come away astonished, raving about the food.
And, The Herringbone on the Waterfront will be joining them soon.
For months now, we’ve been able to hear the sounds of construction from our offices as crews have been restoring and re-imagining an 1898 Herring ice house located right on the waterfront, down the street from The Barker House and across from the Chowan Arts Council.
The Herringbone is an exciting restaurant with an innovative new menu from new chef Kyle Murphy built on North Carolina staples like Carolina gold rice, fresh-caught fish, and more.
But the food isn’t the only thing to be excited about.
An extraordinary collaboration between founders and owners Joe and Stephanie Wach and Edenton’s Down East Preservation, The Herringbone isn’t just a restaurant but a living museum celebrating all things Edenton.
Almost everything in the Herringbone comes from Edenton, from the driftwood chandeliers to the boat hanging high above the bar in the vaulted ceilings.
A 20-ft custom pressed tobacco-leaf bar adds a dynamic flourish to a full-service bar featuring three special Herringbone brews.
The Herringbone will be a true destination restaurant that will take your breath away even before you get to the table.
The astonishing detail inside and the care and craftsmanship of every inch of the building will shape up to be a magnificent tribute to all things Edenton.
The Herringbone officially opens in just a few weeks. So, when you schedule your next trip to Edenton, make sure you put it on your itinerary.
