Cosby sweater from Mystique

In 1992, at the height of “The Cosby Show,” editors gave a nod to Mystique in Wilmington and showed a picture of aCosby sweater from Mystique hot-looking model in a not-so-hot looking Cosby sweater.

In 1993 editors awarded Wild Birds Unlimited in Rehoboth Beach with, wait for it, Best Place to Outfit Your Bird. It was a natural follow-up to the 1988 award for the Best Place to Catch Crabs.

The editors weren’t always wrong. In 1989 they presented the Best New Restaurant award to a promising upstart called Harry’s Savoy Grill. They wrote: “Who’s the shining new star in Delaware’s galaxy of great places to indulge one’s palate? Harry’s Savoy Grill in Wilmington received rave reviews and is waiting to serve you.”

Editors were more perceptive than Kreskin that year, recognizing greatness in other new restaurants. The best sandwich shop that year was Arena’s Deli. The best new beach restaurant was La La Land. They awarded Luigi Vitrone’s Pastabilities and Bangkok House in Wilmington.
