Is that love we smell in the air…or just the amazing cuisine of Southport? Perhaps a bit of both! Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and our real estate agents encourage you to start thinking about your dinner plans ahead of time. As Cupid draws back his bow, peruse the menus at these Southport restaurants perfect for couples planning to celebrate Valentine's Day with takeout.
- Southport Gourmet and Sushi Bar — 1643 North Howe St., Southport, NC 28461
Southport Gourmet and Sushi Bar is a great place to grab takeout for Valentine's Day, especially if you're on a date with someone new. There's nothing better than splitting a few sushi rolls over some conversation. If sushi isn't a match made in heaven for the two of you, teriyaki and hibachi entrees will add a little sizzle to your night.
- Bella Cucina — 5177 Southport-Supply Rd. SE Unit A, Southport, NC 28461
Tuscan-style cuisine is never a bad choice for a Valentine's Day dinner, but hand-tossed New York-style pizza is always a crowd-pleaser. How do you can your beau choose between the two? You get both at Bella Cucina! Your favorite pizzas loaded with cheese and fresh toppings sit alongside Italian classics like tortellini Bolognese and Penne al Forno. Of course, you can't truly call it a Valentine's Day dinner without dessert, so be sure to indulge in cannolis and New York cheesecake.
- Mr. P's Bistro — 309 N. Howe St., Southport, NC 28461
Mr. P's Bistro has you covered on Valentine's Day if you're hankering for some cuisine from the Lower Cape Fear. North Carolina fried green tomatoes and Low Country crab cakes are just a few local dishes on their menu. No order is complete without hot backfin crab dip, made with Mr. P's own special blend of spices, cheese, and crab meat.
- Swain Seafood Shack — 5119 E. Oak Island Dr., Oak Island, NC 28465
If you happen to be browsing Oak Island homes for sale on Valentine's Day, Swain Seafood Shack should be your takeout of choice. They've got a special curbside menu ready to roll away with you, including favorites like the Road Runner chicken sandwich, peel-and-eat shrimp, and the catch of the day. If you're living a little far from Oak Island, grab a take-and-bake pasta dinner so you can heat-and-eat when you get home.
- Castucci's Italian Restaurant — 4332 Long Beach Rd. SE, Southport, NC 28461
There are many restaurants slinging Italian fare, but you know you're at a good one when the owner is originally from Italy. Such is the case at Castucci's Italian Restaurant.
