AAA Four Diamond Award Winner in Duck

The Left Bank, Sanderling Resort and Spa-owned restaurant in Duck, North Carolina, was recently given for the sixth time the AAA Four Diamond Award.  The Left Bank is one of only fifteen restaurants in North Carolina to achieve this rating, placing it among the best in the state.

To help AAA members select establishments that suit consumer’s expectations, AAA assigns descriptive ratings, in selected categories, that indicate the extensiveness of facilities, amenities and services. Lodgings and restaurants are rated one to five AAA Diamonds, ranging from basic to luxury. AAA gives the Four Diamond awards annually to qualified hotels and restaurants in North America.  More than 2,000 properties nationally earn the Four Diamond ratings after specially trained judges conduct anonymous overnight stays or dine incognito.  According to AAA Carolinas spokesman Brendan Byrnes, “All Four Diamond properties are impressive establishments and it is rare that a restaurant can continue to deliver delicious cuisine and superior service year after year.  To put it in perspective, The Left Bank is the only NC AAA Four Diamond restaurant east of Raleigh.”
