Best Bistro

CRITICS, UPSTATE | Eclipse
1020 N. Union St., Wilmington, 658-1588
Carl Georigi’s cozy, chic Eclipse is a bistro in the Parisian sense. The cuisine is often simple, with such hearty dishes as its famous braised short ribs with maple demi-glace and andouille-spiked seafood stew with shrimp fumet. Service is exceptional, and the fun atmosphere has created an army of regulars.

CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Kool Bean Bistro
111 Atlantic Ave., Ocean View, 541-5377
Charming and diminutive Kool Bean Bistro looked to France and Italy to inspire its atmosphere and cuisine. Consider mussels Provençal with a kick of fennel or beef short ribs braised in red wine and beer. Many customers consider Kool Bean their regular coffee-and-breakfast spot, thanks to a good selection of espressos, fresh quiches, pastries, and more.

CRITICS, OVER THE LINE | Blue Pear Bistro
1390 Old Wilmington Pike, West Chester, Pa., (610) 399-9812
One word you’re likely to hear to describe Blue Pear Bistro is “playful.” The place has tackled chicken nuggets, French fries and hot dogs (its take on Vancouver-style Japadog comes strapped with nori, grilled Napa cabbage and wasabi mayo), but its true bistro-style offerings—things like slow-roasted lamb shoulder, saffron-scented mussels and heavenly braised short ribs—are outstanding.
