How long has flatbread been around and why the current resurgence in this timeless staple? Well, I don't know if the website answers these questions, BUT there is great food, aroma, and atmosphere here. By now, most of you Wilmington locals know that Eddie Romanelli's Restaurant has changed its name to Flat Eddies Restaurant and that this name derives from their ICONIC dish in the flatbreads section of the menu.
