Be very careful if you book any special event with the Berruets. They are holding thousands of dollars in deposits for The Pearl (their old restaurant in Kill Devil Hills, NC) for weddings in 2012 that they have not returned. Additionally, they have not communicated with any of the brides that they no longer operate The Pearl in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Their old location in NC is being renovated by the hotel to which it is connected and will be under new management. It looks like they took the money and ran off to Naples.
