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)


(page 44 of 144)

Best Lunch Spot
Readers, upstate and downstate: Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries (1249 Quintilio Drive, Bear, 832-7555; 111 Garfield Parkway, Bethany Beach, 539-3970; 136 Lantana Drive, Hockessin, 239-1125)

Critics, upstate: Every morning at 6:30 a.m., Michelle LaFond and Catalina Ruiz arrive at The Bean Bag Café to make brownies, muffins and cookies. While the goods bake, the staffers prepare turkey chili, chicken salad, egg salad, tuna salad, spicy turkey salad, pasta salad and cole slaw. Bean Bag owner Holly Jankiewicz, who took over the business in 2003, calls her employees “fast women” because they work tirelessly to accommodate downtown patrons on their lunch hours. The café closes at 2:30 p.m. Enter from Market Street or Shipley Street. (913 N. Market St., Wilmington, 888-2444)

Critics, downstate: Everyone knows Corner Eatery @ 33 West is the place for a power lunch, and where to spot anyone who’s anyone in Dover. But how about the food? It’s top-notch, as any of those power players can attest. The salads, soups, grilled veggies and sandwiches—like chicken panini, mojito grilled chicken and the California club—rule. (33 W. Loockerman St., Dover, 735-9822)
