Lights dark at What's Cook'n
July 11, 2012By Liz Biro
What’s Cook’n in Castle Hayne appears to be a restaurant in transition.
The 5212 N. College Road spot run by neighboring Lawler Catering has been locked for a few weeks. A sign on the door reads “Sorry for the inconvenience. We are closed for renovations.”
Calls to the restaurant and Lawler Catering were not returned.
Susan Marie Lawler owns Lawler Catering and What’s Cook’n Restaurant, according to the company website.
The catering business relocated from Philadelphia to Wilmington. What’s Cook’n opened in spring 2005, offering Southern foods and home cooking.
In 2009, Lawler Catering was tapped to serve students, faculty and staff at Cape Fear Community College. The wide-ranging catering menu lists breakfast, specialty pizzas, from-scratch soup, crab cakes, prime rib, Italian and Mexican dishes and myriad sweets.
