Best Mediterranean Restaurant

READERS, UPSTATE | Ali Baba Middle Eastern Cuisine
175 E. Main St., Newark, 738-1111

109 W. Market St., Lewes, 644-4446

CRITICS, UPSTATE | Olé Tapas Lounge and Restaurant
1126 Capital Trail, Newark, 224-9378
Warm, rustic, utterly authentic tapas make the grade at Olé Tapas Lounge, as do artisinal charcuterie and exhilarating Valencian paella. The common thread is bold Mediterranean flavors, especially those stemming from Spain. See the chorizo gratin, with melty tetilla cheese for more, as well as the bacon-wrapped mission figs with cave-aged cabrales cheese. Buy small glasses of wine to match.

28 Wilmington Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-4199
Espuma owner and chef Jay Caputo uses Sussex produce and is committed to preparing farm-to-table cuisine. Two farms in Houston provide organic eggs, while milk and yogurt often come from less than half an hour away. Because Espuma’s menu depends on available produce, its artful dishes vary from season to season. Entrées include paella with shrimp, chicken, chorizo, saffron and mussels. Its Chesapeake crab-stuffed scallion crepe with ruby red grapefruit, cucumber and avocado is another popular choice.
