Best of Delaware 2011: Food and Restaurants: Restaurant Revival: Columbus Inn in Wilmington
2216 Pennsylvania Ave., Wilmington, 571-1492, columbusinn.com
When you reopen an establishment as revered as the Columbus Inn, you don’t do it halfway. The inn was reborn in grand style late last year with a superb young chef in Chris D’Ambro and a brilliantly refurbished interior. Meat and potatoes haven’t been this chic in ages.
