Aqua, in Morehead City

Aqua is one of my favorite restaurants. Most of the menu is tapas and other small portions, plus several full sized entrees. The gnocchi (potato dumplings) are coated in basil pesto. The tomato pie exudes a rich cheese flavor. As you might expect from the location, this kitchen has an especially good way with seafoods. The scallops pictured below are U10- really large sized. Triggerfish is my favorite, in season only a few months in the year. And, in case you tend to visit the coast in summer, fall, winter, and especially spring are the best seasons! Moderate temperatures, low crowds. (Of course, you have to avoid hurricanes in fall!)
