You may have had a Caesar salad made at your table, but there’s no equaling the tableside service at the University of Delaware’s Vita Nova. Training ground for UD’s Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Management students, the full-service restaurant is housed inside the Trabant Student Center. Student servers present your organic chicken roulade with French-style service (plated via a tableside cart). Beef filet is served in the Russian style.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Blue Moon
35 Baltimore Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-6515
A small, dedicated wait staff and the large, dedicated group of regulars have a unique rapport at the Blue Moon. In short order the servers know the guests’ favorite drinks, favorite tables and, sometimes, even things like birthdays and anniversaries. “They understand that the restaurant business is about a diner’s expectations,” says owner Meghan Gardner. “And they know how to exceed those expectations.”
