Persimmons Waterfront Restaurant
Opened in August of 2010, Persimmons is a locally-owned waterfront restaurant located on the shores of the Neuse River in New Bern, NC. We feature an elegant yet casual atmosphere and three distinct dining venues: our downstairs great room, our private upstairs dining room, and our picturesque outdoor waterfront dining area. Persimmons focuses on modern cuisine made from locally-sourced ingredients by our award-winning chef and hosting a variety of special events with waterfront dining, fresh food, and the friendliest service around.
In addition to using local, sustainable ingredients in our food, we also designed our building with sustainability in mind. Our heating and air conditioning is done with an efficient geothermal system, our lighting fixtures are energy efficient, we installed waterless urinals low-flow bathroom fixtures, and we also maintain a recycling program. In fact, much of our restaurant building, including our tables and hostess stand, is made of recycled or reclaimed materials. Our goal is to be as responsible as possible and make a positive impact on our community around us.
