Best of Delaware 2008

Our 25th salute to the places that make Delaware great, plus the Hall of Fame of winningest places ever. (Can you say Grotto Pizza?) As chosen by you, the readers (with a little help from your friends here at DT)

Best Chinese Restaurant
Readers, upstate: The Crownery (228 Lantana Drive, Hockessin, 239-3825)

Readers, downstate: New China (250 Gateway Blvd. South, Dover, 698-1800)

Critics, upstate: China Royal packs customers in just about nightly, and those folks are not just there for the moo shu. Customers love the fast, friendly, reliable service. Plus, with all the great variety it serves, China Royal is occasionally forgotten as a seafood restaurant at heart. The dozens of dishes that revolve around shrimp, crab, scallops and even whole sea bass are phenomenal. (1845 Marsh Road, Wilmington, 475-3686)

Critics, downstate: Perhaps the contemporary interior and beautiful plating adds to the experience at Confucius Chinese Cuisine. The fare is truly diverse, and the menu pays homage to several styles of regional cooking. For traditional favorites, the Peking duck is prepared well, but do drift a tad outside your comfort zone to find cold jellyfish or Woo Shien beef. We also love the standbys—General Tso’s chicken, orange beef—but Confucius’ original creations get our vote. (57 Wilmington Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-3848)
