(page 50 of 170)
READERS, UPSTATE | Caffé Gelato
90 E. Main St., Newark, 738-5811
READERS, DOWNSTATE | Big Fish Grill
20298 Coastal Hwy., Rehoboth Beach, 227-9007
CRITICS, UPSTATE | Corner Bistro
3604 Silverside Road, Wilmington, 477-1778
Loosen your belts. Beloved pastry chef Judy Baker—original maker of all things sweet—has returned to Corner Bistro. Staffers say the Key lime pie and the banoffee tart, the only desserts made off the premises, will remain. Patrons would rebel if they didn’t. But Baker (apt name), sister of owner Mickey Donatello, is creating all-new goodies. That means peanut butter cheesecake, folks.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Salt Air
50 Wilmington Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-2444
Salt Air’s desserts, done by pastry chef Jesse Moore, mirror the restaurant’s dinner menu: creative, but never esoteric. Try the rosemary scone-based strawberry shortcake with mint and citrus macerated strawberries, or the sublime blackberry buckle with cinnamon gelato.
