Best Gourmet Grocer
Critics, downstate: Customers with good taste seek out gourmet fare at Lewes Gourmet no matter how much it costs them to drive there. The shop’s dedicated owners, Lou and Gavin Braithwaite, have earned that loyalty. This year the couple is expanding on specialty oils, juniper berries, lavender for cooking and hard-to-find spices such as Beau Monde. Gourmands can find toasted hazelnut oil from France and argan oil from Morocco, which is wonderful for drizzling on goat cheese or mashed potatoes. Lewes Gourmet is also adding more table linens from India and hand towels from California. The Braithwaites stock fresh cheeses, sauces, 50-plus tea varieties, teapots and cozies, jellies, chutneys and jams. (110 Front St., Lewes, 645-1661)
