Best in Seaford
READERS | Bon Appetit
312 High St., Seaford, 629-3700
Best in Smyrna
READERS | Trevi Ristorante
53 E. Glenwood Ave., Smyrna, 653-6800
CRITICS | The Boondocks
825 Lighthouse Road, Smyrna, 653-6962
Despite the proliferation of casual chains, The Boondocks remains a fave. With its nautical decor and owner Pat Keeler’s stained-glass decorations, it’s the perfect place for sharing a bucket of wings or a bushel of steamed crabs. Pig out on the Pig Out: six crabs, shrimp, chicken wings, fries and corn.
Best in Downtown Wilmington
READERS | Deep Blue Bar and Grill
111 W. 11th St., Wilmington, 777-2040
CRITICS | The Green Room
11 W. Market St., Wilmington, 594-3154
The Green Room of the Hotel du Pont is the grandest restaurant in town. Most know about its fumed oak paneling,
coffered ceiling, gold chandeliers and original oil paintings. What people may not know is how difficult it is to earn a AAA Four Diamond rating. Nominees must be upscale in all areas, and hospitality must be consistently excellent. The Green Room earned 24 in a row.
READERS | Harry’s Savoy Grill
2020 Naamans Road, Wilmington, 475-3000
CRITICS | Culinaria
1812 Marsh Road, No. 19, Wilmington, 475-4860
Owners Ezio Reynaud and Pam Grabowski know how to make patrons feel special. Perhaps the most romantic spot in North Wilmington, the Tuscan-hued Culinaria is known for its tomato Parmesan soup, cheese tortelloni, and entrées such as roasted salmon in curry sauce.
The wine selection is large and reasonably priced. Pours are generous.
