Business Profile: The Chef & The Frog
Not all of the best restaurants in southeastern North Carolina are in Wilmington or along the coast. Take drive inland on Highway 74 to downtown Whiteville, and you’ll find the award-winning The Chef & The Frog.
An artisan blend of French-Asian farm-to-table slow food, The Chef & The Frog has been featured in numerous magazines and TV shows and could easily stand out among the restaurants in larger cities. But owners Sokun Slama and Guillaume Slama are committed to Whiteville.
They like the small-town atmosphere and the townspeople who have supported their restaurant for the last 12 years.
Sokun (the Chef) and Frenchman Guillaume (the Frog) love what they do, and it shows. They put their heart and soul into everything at their restaurants, and the results add up to more than a meal but rather an exceptional dining experience.
Chef Sokun uses the freshest ingredients, growing her own herbs and vegetables and even raising chickens for the fresh eggs.
An extensive wine list and bar offerings add to the enjoyment, and the staff is trained to make everyone’s experience as pleasant as possible.
Word about The Chef & The Frog is spreading, and it has become a destination restaurant for foodies throughout southeastern North Carolina. They are open for lunch Tuesday through Friday, dinner Thursday through Sunday and for Sunday brunch (but call ahead to verify hours).
They also offer on- and off-premise catering with two private dining rooms and an outside patio. Make the hour’s drive to Whiteville for lunch or dinner and discover this hidden gem for yourself.
