Cozy, unpretentious Domaine Hudson is the perfect place for a first date or romantic escape. It’s the wine. Domaine Hudson offers at least 40 wines by the glass, more than 400 by the bottle and, if the couple prefers, 80 craft beers. Gracious servers avoid interminably asking if everything is OK, allowing couples the space to enjoy each other’s company.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | The Buttery
102 Second St., Lewes, 645-7755
Birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day and engagements—they’ve seen them all at The Buttery. Credit the small and cozy dining areas inside this beautifully restored Victorian mansion, with no more than eight tables in a single room. There are hanging lanterns, candlelit tables, subdued lighting and relaxing music. It’s the perfect environment for romance—or a date with some crab cakes.
