I've heard that negotiations are in the works with a Beaufort, NC restaurant to occupy the space in the newly built waterfront building on South Front Street in New Bern, NC.

Can't wait!!

Does anyone know what ever became of Clementines?

Let's see,

You must only be interested in the finer dining restaurants in Beaufort

Stillwater- wouldn't guess they're branching out

Sharpies- source close says "No"

Blue Moon- owner not interested in expanding

Beaufort Grocery- already has two in portfolio

Clawson's/Aqua- who knows

-or- the rest

Net House

Royal James

Spouter Inn

Boardwalk Cafe

Cool Fish

I am curious where you got your info from.

As for Clementine's:

He opened and closed another restaurant in New Bern within a short amount of time and a friend of mine who worked for him cannot file his '06 tax return because the owner never filed his and is nowhere to be found.

A friend and I spoke to one of the "owners, investors" of the project.

I also heard that the owner of Clementines was managing the restaurant at Carolina Pines. Your friend might check there.

Also heard that Chef Bruce had closed. Wazzzup with that? And what's the problem with keeping restaurants in this area.

A new Italian is opening on MLK Drive. Giovanna's.

It's in the old Pizza Inn building, behind Crabby Jacks.

Yes, Morgan's is good, but how many times can you go to the same restaurant and have the same food. They haven't changed their menu in a while and diversity is GREAT!

There is a new Italian? Restorante open now on Martin Luther King Blvd. Behind Crabby Jack's.

Its called Giovanna's. A bunch of us went last evening. The front of the house has a lot of kinks to work out yet and we heard the waitress yelling at the cook, don't want to call him a chef, cause I don't think a Chef would ever stand for a waitress yelling at him.

The food was HO HUM, better that Paula's but if this restaurant was in a metropolitan area it would be closed in another month.

The red sauce was greasy, the cheese was poor quality and so was the veal.

It will warrant another visit in a month, to see if they've gotten their act together.

Waterfront restaurant still not open.

Chef Bruce's Italian Bistro has closed and PIAS is coming soon in the same spot. Someone said it was to be a Greek restaurant. That would be nice.... now if only it was good!

Waterfront restaurant is open, called Persimmons. Lunch was good, haven't done dinner there yet.

Fred and Claires is now 247 Craven and it is Excellent!

Pia's in going Italian! Pia had health problems and her restaurant is going to be an Italian place called Bella Cucina. Don't think it's open yet.

Ribeyes Steakhouse just opened on Pollock St. Have not eaten there yet.

New Sushi is open on Neuse Blvd.

The 21st century is coming to New Bern!! Wooeeee!!

Yes. I don't like how America has become homogenized either. Chains of all sorts are largely behind it. West Virginia looks no different from Boston in many places. A trip across the country looks more the same than different.

Ms. Alex has been to 247 Craven several times and really likes it. She's even a fan of theirs on Facebook.

Bella Cucina is indeed open; she's eaten dinner there once. She liked the food and said the service was good (some of the same ones as Pia's) but the wine list was sadly lacking in quantity and quality. That may yet change.

A couple of months ago I had a simple but delicious stir-fry at Sumo Bowl on S. Glenburnie.

It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."
