After 6 Months the Doors Are Open
It seems like Village Table and Tavern in Duck has been under construction forever—but at long last it’s open!
For visitors who have been driving up to Corolla, that’s the building that’s been under construction at the Nor’Banks Sailing Center since February.
Was it worth the wait?
A soft opening visit this past weekend would say that yes it was—most emphatically.
The same people who opened Trio Wine, Beer & Cheese in Kitty Hawk seven years ago are behind the Village Table, and it has some of the same features. A very nice wine list and hard to find and interesting beers from around the world seem to be hallmarks of their style.
But that may be where the comparison ends.
Unlike Trio, Village Table is a full service restaurant. The pricing is moderate—most entrees are $10-$20— and there is full bar service and dining room with seating.
The bar is really nice with some rarely seen liquors and their own twist on seasonal cocktails.
What will probably really set the site apart from almost every other restaurant on the Outer Banks, though is the setting—that and the food which promises to be very good with a real flair. As an aside…if the wahoo fish of the day that was served on Friday is any indication, Village Table will do very well.
But the setting—spectacular.
Sitting right on the Currituck Sound and just a little bit elevated, the sunsets promise to be amazing. Coupled with sail boats going and coming when Nor’Banks is open, the location is going to set the bar really high for waterfront dining.
Plans call for the restaurant to be open for lunch and dinner. It’s a bit late in the season to experiment, but it is possible Village Table will open for breakfast next year.
There is always something exciting happening on the Outer Banks and Joe Lamb Jr., & Associates & Associates have properties ready to rent wherever the action is.
