The Green Room at the Hotel du Pont’s French Fare and Rococo Flair
For 100 years and counting, the AAA-rated destination has served first-class cuisine with Old-World service that’s as refined as it is appreciated in a city full of laid-back restaurants.
The Green Room of the Hotel du Pont
The history of the venerable Green Room is lost in the mists of time, says food and beverage director Daniel Bradway, but having worked there for 29 years, he feels part of it. That’s not an uncommon sentiment among chefs who have worked in the 100-year-old restaurant, for it’s respect for the past that allows the staff to continue the hotel’s tradition of Old World service. As the expansive rococo dining room has been updated over the years, so has the menu, relaxing recently from traditional French to contemporary French. But no matter what the changes, always subtle, the focus remains on excellence. The Green Room is Delaware’s longest-running AAA-rated four-star restaurant—27 years and counting. 42 W. 11th St., Wilmington, 594-3154, hoteldupont.com
