Through opening many other successful seafood restaurants and oyster bars throughout the Carolinas, Paul discovered a huge flaw in all seafood restaurant business models – that the safe and reliant acquisition of oysters was highly unstable. The worst part being that their ability to secure oysters was subject to factors that were beyond the control of all restaurants such as spoilage, disease, and sustainability issues. Because of this Paul wanted to create Sea Level NC, a seafood restaurant that grew its own signature items by relying on sustainable and local supply lines. Through years of working with local aquaculture specialists, farmers, scientists, shrimpers, and other fishermen, Paul was able to secure partnerships with local oyster and clam farmers in the town of Sea Level, North Carolina to grow his own product which has been designed and harvested specifically to his restaurant standards. Sea Level NC offers the only farm-to-fork oyster in North Carolina and they are only one of four restaurants in the entire United States with such relationships. Although their oysters are their signature dish and a must try, we also recommend trying their takes on the classics, such as their Maine Lobster Roll and their NC Shrimp Grits. Their Catfish Rueben was one of our favorite dishes. Consisting of amazing flavors served on perfectly toasted bread this sandwich is tough to forget about once you have it.
