Paul Charron and Sharon Enoch opened The Full Moon Café on the Manteo Waterfront, Roanoke Island Outer Banks in 1995.
Sharon is a native of Baltimore, and as one of the oldest of nine children, she's no stranger to making food in large quantities. "I credit my Mom for my culinary adventures. She had a horde of mouths to feed, but every Sunday we would set the table with fine china and silver and dine. She would set an ambitious menu that introduced the children to cuisines from around the world: veal marsala, chicken picatta, eggplant parmesan (not a hit), beef stroganoff... It was wonderful and it gave me a lifelong fascination with the incredibly diverse world of food."
Paul hails from Manhattan (that little burg up north), where meat and potatoes were culinary kings of his Irish household. The couple met at college, married a few years later, and moved to the Outer Banks in the late 80s. Meant as only a temporary stop on the career trail, they fell in love with the Outer Banks and are intent on staying put. They live on Roanoke Island (the most amazing place), have three wonderful children, and have never regretted their move south.
