Best Neighborhood Place
CRITICS, UPSTATE | Corner Bistro
3604 Silverside Road, Wilmington, 477-1778
Owner Mickey Donatello changes the Corner Bistro menu every spring and fall, but three popular items—Donatello’s personal faves—never go away: Key lime pie, Cuban black bean soup and the Cuban sandwich. Thick French toast made from LeBus Bakery bread slathered in caramel sauce has helped make the new Sunday brunch a sensation.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Frankie’s
1131 N. Dupont Hwy., Dover, 674-4600
In case the ample spaghetti and meatballs and caricature of Dean Martin didn’t tip you off, Frankie’s, in the Colonnade at Dover Downs, is all about family-style Italian. Chef Giovanni Cardillo’s freshly made pasta goes into faves like linguini with clams. Most dishes are friendly to a family’s bank account, too. Delicious brick-oven pizzas, named for Rat Pack heroes, are under $10.
