Philanthropic fish: dine out for a good cause


Great chefs that commit to fresh, local ingredients understand the concept of "community" and the importance of helping one another during times of crisis. Chef Keith Rhodes, owner of Catch in Wilmington, proves that point in his most recent effort to give back.

Through the end of September 2017, Chef Rhodes will be donating 100% of sales of a special fish dish to a relief fund set up for victims of Hurricane Irma. The fund will specifically help residents of the British Virgin Islands.

The dish is a crispy skin Red Drum, coconut rice, okra soup & lemon dressed radish salad.

With the coast being both his home and the place where he makes his livelihood, Chef Rhodes understands how easily it could have been eastern North Carolina in the crosshairs of Hurricane Irma.

In 2011 Chef Rhodes was a NC James Beard Semifinalist for Best Chef Southeast, and was voted Wilmington’s best chef for three consecutive years. He appeared on Season 9 of Bravo TV's "Top Chef". His enthusiasm for North Carolina seafood is contagious, and his passion for modern seafood cuisine comes through in every bite.

Rhodes does a great deal of outreach work, including public school visits to teach students about nutrition. He is a designated chef ambassador for NC Catch.
