WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – Downtown Wilmington will soon be getting a new restaurant.

Perkeo is moving into the space that once was home to Deluxe.

Two friends who met while working for a defense contractor plan to open a wine bistro in the fall.

Lynn Adkins and Malissa Mashburn have enjoyed traveling the world, tasting wines and food and hope to bring some flavor to the Port City.

“It’s just a passion of both of ours. We really like food, and we really enjoy wine, and finding a wine and a food that matches really well is a big passion of ours, and that’s kind of what we want to bring to Wilmington,” said Mashburn.

Perkeo will feature a variety of local and imported wines.

Cuisines will include Asian, American and European foods.

Perkeo is expected to open in September and is located at 114 Market Street.

    Living in Florida we have an excellent “local” food and bar called the Sandtrap…Thai and American (sports bar food) with an Irish twist. It does very well and we do not mind waiting 45mins during busy season to get a table. Diversity, I think it will do very well. Congratulations and good luck on your upcoming grand opening.

    How about you get to know the owners a little before you make assumptions of how experienced they are. I know Miss Mashburn personally and when she puts her mind to something she gets it done!!! And shouldn’t we back all United States Veterans, that’s something you all don’t know and maybe Miss Mashburn doesn’t want it told but I believe it should be told she served her country well and I am extremely proud of her accomplishments and wish her and her partner in this endeavor all the luck in the world!!!!!
