TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

Something in Wilmington is getting national attention – and this time, it is positively delicious.

The undeniable momentum of the city’s restaurant resurgence has caught the eye of the editors at Food and Wine magazine, one of the nation’s top foodie digests.

The piece, “Wilmington, Delaware’s Restaurant Scene Deserves Your Attention,” by writer Regan Stephens features new Wilmington hotspots Bardea, Torbert Street Social and the soon-to-come Le Cavalier at the Green Room in the Hotel Du Pont, tying them to a boost that’s “helping revitalize the city of Wilmington at large.”

 

From the article:

The Green Room revamp is coming in the midst of a restaurant renaissance that’s helping to revitalize the city of Wilmington at large. In the fall of 2018, modern Italian bistro Bardea opened, and within the year it was a James Beard Award semi-finalist for best new restaurant—a first for Wilmington.

Le Cavalier Chef-owner Tyler Akin – a Wilmington guy who went on to star at top eateries in Washington, DC and Philadelphia – recalls in the article donning a blazer for special occasions to dine at the very formal Green Room.

When news of the new brasserie taking the place of the Green Room was announced late last year, Akin, a 2002 graduate of Tower Hill School told TSD that he “couldn’t say no” when the opportunity arose to open a new restaurant in the hotel, which was the same building where his grandfather once worked.

 

The Food and Wine piece also features the Deco food hall in the DuPont Building:

Deco—short for Delaware Collective, and a nod to the area’s Art Deco architecture—is a new food hall with eight restaurant stalls, a bar, and a private event space. Seven stalls in the $3.5 million project are constant, and range from pastries and banh mi to a pizza-focused outpost of Bardea, while one stall is revolving, allowing local chefs to test concepts before committing to a brick and mortar.
