Most Romantic Atmosphere

  Readers, upstate: Moro (1307 N. Scott St., Wilmington, 777-1800)
  Readers, downstate: Eden (23 Baltimore Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-3330)
  Critics, upstate: Couples who laugh together stay together. That’s the Grays’ philosophy, as evidenced by their vote for the whimsical decor of Krazy Kat’s at The Inn at Montchanin Village, which features tiger-print chairs and portraits of military-garbed cats and dogs. But there is a romantic feel about the space. After all, it is Montchanin. “This cozy inn has a satisfying kitchen, good service and offers a place for romantic, moonlit strolls around the landscaped countryside,” says Linda Gray. As for that wacky decor, “It brings a smile to my face.” (Del. 100 and Kirk Road, Montchanin, 888-4200)
  Critics, downstate: Intimacy can be hard to come by in Dewey Beach. Family-run Two Seas, with its small indoor dining room and a few porch seats with views of both the ocean and the bay, is the definition of quiet elegance. “It’s a really romantic spot, very quiet and very romantic,” Pires says. “Even ugly guys get lucky after taking a date there.” (Highway One and Van Dyke Street, Dewey Beach, 227-2610)
