Readers, upstate: Cosmo’s Diner (316 S. Maryland Ave., Wilmington, 994-0920)
Readers, downstate: Captain Pete’s Mediterranean Cove (700 Coastal Hwy., Fenwick Island, 537-5900)
Critics, upstate: Poppiti calls Cosmo’s Diner Restaurant “a family favorite. We have a family joke that when the shad’s running, it’s going to a big night out for Dad.” Cosmo’s offers “a great Greek menu, great seafood, great diner fare. It does great food, period.” Cosmo’s offers all the great American breakfast standards, too, but its authentic dishes are savory. Spanakopita, layers of flaky filo dough stuffed with spinach and feta is a top seller, as is Greek-style spaghetti topped with browned butter and feta, and its lasagna-like pastichio. (316. S. Maryland Ave., Wilmington, 994-0920)
Critics, downstate: For a whirlwind tour of Greek cuisine, try the appetizer of Greek favorites for two—dolmades, spanikopita, hummus, meatballs and more—at Captain Pete’s Mediterranean Cove. Save room for delicious specials such as whole grilled branzino seasoned just right with a touch of olive oil, lemon and sea salt. On a nice summer evening, you might think you’re dining on the Aegean instead of the Atlantic. (700 Coastal Hwy., Fenwick Island, 537-5900)
