Best Restaurant Makeover

CRITICS, UPSTATE | Dome to Redfire Grill
400 Lantana Drive, Hockessin, 235-2600
There was no place like Dome, but you’ve got to love its reincarnation as Redfire Grill and Steakhouse. With its low lighting, ruby walls and signature steaks, Carl Georigi’s classic chophouse keeps Hockessin hoppin’. We’re partial to the New York strip and the rib-eye. All steaks are broiled at 1,200 degrees and are best taken with creamed spinach, horseradish mashed potatoes or grilled asparagus. The wine list, like the menu, is priced fairly and the orange-spiked cheesecake makes for a nice finish. Dome, thanks for the memories.

CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Celsius to Henlopen City Oyster House
50 Wilmington Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 260-9193
A good deal of elbow grease went into making the former Celsius Restaurant into Henlopen City Oyster House. For business partners Joe Baker and Chris Bisaha, that meant transforming the space into a modern rustic-chic oyster house, complete with wood plank flooring, brick walls and exposed ceilings. The brand new raw bar (adjacent to the actual bar) has four stools where patrons can sit and mull over the selection of oysters from eight to 10 regions every night.
