Best Sunday Brunch
Readers, upstate: The Green Room (11th and Market sts., Wilmington, 594-3154)
Readers, downstate: Michele’s Steak and Seafood (1131 N. Dupont Hwy., Dover, 674-4600)
Critics, upstate: Brunch at Krazy Kat’s will blow you away, Karibjanian says. Standards like fruit salad, quiche and eggs Benedict mingle with crab and lobster cakes. Karibjanian’s favorite? A gnocchi (yes, gnocchi for brunch) in a spinach-tomato broth. Eggs Benedict with Canadian bacon won over Karibjanian’s son, and her daughter flipped for crepes with sweet cream. “It is our new favorite brunch spot,” she says. It’s also one of the best values going, considering you’re dining at one of Delaware’s premier dining spots for about $10 per dish. (Del. 100 and Kirk Road, Greenville, 888-4200)
Critics, downstate: Hungry, early-rising beachgoers head to The Starboard for superb egg dishes and wonderful Sunday brunch. “We love Summer Sunday breakfasts at the beach because there’s no need to shop or cook,” says Linda Gray. “The Starboard’s crab eggs Benedict combination with the Bloody Mary bar is a real eye opener.” (2009 Highway One, Dewey Beach, 227-4600)
