Best Place to Cook on a Rock
CRITICS, UPSTATE | Walter’s Steakhouse
802 N. Union St., Wilmington, 652-6780
In memoriam: The kobe hot rocks appetizer at Walter’s Steakhouse has made its way to that big menu in the sky, but we’ll always remember that special sizzle when a thin strip of steak hits the 1,800-degree igneous rock. We’ll remember the wisps of smoke and the oohs. We’ll remember the plum wine and chimichurri sauces. Maybe if we remember really hard, owner John Constantinou will bring it back…
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Dos Locos Fajita and Stone Grill Restaurant
208 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-3353
Become a chef when you order one of the Stonegrill dishes at Dos Locos. A 450-degree Australian lava rock (700 degrees when it leaves a special oven) is delivered to your table, along with your choice of meat—steak, lamb, pork, veal or seafood—for you to cook to your liking. Rubs and sauces can be added. Dos Locos touts the method as healthy because fat is trimmed from the meat, no oils are used, and the rock’s heat sears in natural juices and nutrients. One warning: This is an adult-only experience.
