One of my favorite things about Black Pelican Seafood in Kitty Hawk, second only to the amazing food, is the atmosphere. Black Pelican has so many awesome ghost stories entwined into the walls of the restaurant and the history in the photographs that adorn the walls is incredible. As a matter of fact, the building was originally the Kitty Hawk Lifesaving Station. As if that wasn't enough history to make the building interesting, it's also thought to have been the scene of a murder in the late 1800's.
I've mentioned before that Black Pelican has always been a place that we visit for special occasions. Jason and I have celebrated anniversaries, birthdays and even our children's Christenings here. We love that these walls don't just hold the history of the Outer Banks, but also the history of our family.
Make no mistake, we don't put Black Pelican in a category of special occasions and forget about it the rest of the year. We keep this historical place in our regular rotation of favorite places to dine. We especially love their locals specials during the off season like wood-fired pizza night! Their specialty pizzas are amazing and something we can all agree on so we try to make it for pizza night as often as possible. They offer $2 off any dinner pizza from 3-5 pm on Mondays through the off season.
The Primavera Pizza is my top runner and I'd like to personally thank whoever the genius is that decided that pine nuts belong on pizza because that human was 100% right!
The Black Pelican is carrying on one of their traditions this week by participating in Taste of the Beach with their Sips and Bits event! With small plates, cocktails and stories of their own unique history, this is an event that you don't want to miss. Luckily, you have 3 nights this year to experience the amazing menu that Black Pelican has in store for Taste of the Beach. You can click here for your tickets!
