FireStone Roasting House, Blue Moon, Two Stones Pub and Dogfish Head: Best American


Never mind discussions about what, exactly, we mean by “American” food these days. Were we to suppose one means individualistic, influenced by many other cuisines and, possibly, having a real sense of fun, we vote for Two Stones Pub. Appetizers are called snacks. Nonetheless, we’re fans. Things we loved: fried Brussels sprouts with Sriracha mayonnaise, the smoked duck and cheese, the stacked nachos. Pulled pork puts them in a class of their own. On the entrée side, we go for the Creole shrimp macaroni and cheese, pan-roasted chicken breast with herbed jus and rib-stickin’ meatloaf. 2 Chesmar Plaza, Newark, 294-1890; 2502 Foulk Road, Wilmington, 439-3231,

Plenty of delicious Dogfish Head brew goes into the fare at Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats: beer-battered fried pickles, marinated olives, braised mushrooms, onion soup, fish and chips—even the pizza dough. Cheers. 320 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 226-2739,
