That’s where you’ll find the deliciously hip Jam Bistro in Rehoboth Beach.
A beach-dining classic, Eden (23 Baltimore Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-3330) is famous for its romantic atmosphere and artful presentations. It may be the picture of refinement, but it isn’t always the least expensive dining option. That’s one reason owners Jeff McCracken and Mark Hunker opened Jam Bistro (20 Baltimore Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 226-5266), a more casual, less expensive, but no less hip or delicious alternative. Jam (Jeff and Mark—get it?) is a casual bistro in Celebration Mall that’s decorated with local artwork. It features a 985-bottle wine rack, an outdoor patio and TV-filled bar. Former Eden sous chef Gary Johnson leads the kitchen, which produces approachable yet delicious fare like mussels steamed with Belgian ale and smoked bacon with mustard cream. The bar cranks out housemade cocktails like the Beach Grass, flavored with lemongrass and homemade sour mix. For more, visit www.jambistro.com. —Matt Amis
