Perfect week on Oak Island NC with our dear friend Blanche. The Sea Tow is a rescue boat that came and got us when STUCK 9 miles out into the Lockwood Folly River on 4th of July.

I’d be soooo pissed if I died in this month and was adhering to that cleanse.

Jesse Cool brings in a new partner with a familiar face at Flea Street Cafe

“I’ve been hoping to find a partner for a few years,” explained Jesse. “I made a few attempts with chefs, but that did not work out. In signing a 10-year lease extension — and already 38 years into the business — I knew I needed help to both maintain the core history and values of Flea Street, and to support me as operations become more challenging at my age.

“My youngest son, Jonah, looked at me and said, ‘Mom, it is not a chef you need as a partner, it is Michael Biesemeyer, he is the perfect partner for you and Flea Street.'”

Jesse Cool has a new partner at Flea Street Cafe — and the face is very familiar. Michael Biesemeyer worked for long periods of time over the past decade at the Menlo Park restaurant. “I̵…

The "Which Came First" is a guest favorite and perennial Flea Street classic that Jesse Ziff Cool first cooked up in our kitchen years ago. Chef Ned is putting his own twist on this dish, featuring crispy pasture-raised chicken brushed with honey thyme vinegar, served with a soft-boiled egg & warm potato salad.
