Last August, Larry Mesiti, 55, concluded that the cost of living in his home state of New Jersey was simply too high. The father of two, who served as the Director of Operations for eight different restaurants in Manhattan, knew he wanted to stay in the food business. Luckily for Charlotteans, and patrons of his new seafood market on Monroe Road, he decided to relocate to Charlotte, North Carolina.
So Mesiti and his wife, Tracy Mesiti, 44, decided to open the Deep Sea Seafood Market, a seafood market and restaurant. The walls are lined with photos of people with fish of all shapes and sizes, but the central focus of the small store (located next to Firestone – on Monroe Road) is the large glass display of all of the fresh fish and seafood that is for sale. It is located at 10020 Monroe Rd, Charlotte, North Carolina.
The Mesitis are always on hand to answer questions and offer tips on how best to prepare the fresh fish they sell, some of which are new to customers. They also offer printed recipes for those people that are new to cooking fish. They have over three hundred reviews on google giving them four-point-five star reviews. For those customers who would rather have Mesiti and his staff cook their seafood, dine-in service is available as well. A variety of sandwiches (such as a grilled tuna sandwich or mahi-mahi Bánh mì, and blackened or fried catfish Po-Boy), soups and salads, are also available for dine-in or take-out orders.
LuLu’s is the new kid on the block, opening late last year at the corner of Berryhill and Tuckaseegee in west Charlotte. It is located at 2400 Tuckaseegee Rd, Charlotte, North Carolina. Among the menu of wings, shrimp, fish, and crab, the most talked-about item are the crab cakes. For northerners who scoff at typical crab cakes served in the South, they’ll appreciate the amount of actual crab in LuLu’s Maryland Style Chicken & Seafood crab cakes. Fair warning: order early because they sell out fast.
Lump crab meat and chicken from Lulu’s Maryland Style at 2400 Tuckaseegee Road, Charlotte 28208. Their menu also features shrimp and grits, stuffed salmon, and more seafood and spiced chicken dishes. Fair warning: order early because they sell out fast. And of course, they have over five hundred reviews on the world wide web giving them four-point-three star reviews.
Sea Level — named for a small N.C. seaside town — looks to bring Carolina seafood and a raw bar to the Queen City, with a number of choices for those who aren’t huge seafood fans. It is located at 129 E 5th St, Charlotte, North Carolina. The menu includes starters such as tempura shrimp, shrimp and grits, oyster sliders, and corn fritters.
The menu of Sea Level NC also features today’s fresh catch to allow people to enjoy a variety of seafood. Non-seafood lovers can choose from selections such as burgers, steak, chicken, and salads. Soups include options such as clam chowder and oyster stew. The shrimp Po Boy, catfish Reuben, seafood sausage, and lobster roll are among the sandwich options.
Exposed brick, Brazilian hardwood floors, and slate tiles each have their place in the restaurant’s design. Reclaimed oak from Texas was used for tabletops and the bar. The oysters at Sea Level are what will set it apart because it will be a farm-to-fork oyster bar, Manley says. (It takes approximately 18 months to grow an oyster in the farm setting in North Carolina. It could take 5 years in Prince Edward Island because of the cold.) They have over one thousand reviews on google giving them four-point-five star reviews.
