Right on schedule, Bodhi Kitchen opened this week in downtown Rehoboth.
This is the second new project for the culinary minds behind Drift, and it seems as though Bodhi will make a similar splash in the coastal resort town.
There’s no missing the theme.
Cocktails sport names like Happy Buddha, East Meets West and Quiet Meditation, and the menu features noodles and rice dishes, dim sum (soup dumplings and pork belly steamed buns), lettuce wraps and Southern Thai fried chicken.
The price point is $12-$15 for small plates; $7-$15 for dim sum; and $18-$29 for noodle/rice dishes and large plates.
Another coup for Milford
My Sister’s Fault has reopened after a two-month expansion and renovation.
Owners — and sisters — Angie and Rous Robles purchased the building on SW Front Street, where they’d rented space for five years. (The location was once home to the Milford Chronicle).
The restaurant can now properly showcase the sweet and savory sides of the sisters, who moved to Delaware from Puerto Rico in 2009 and opened the bakery in 2017.
Since then, the business has received numerous awards, and last year, My Sister’s Fault received an EDGE Grant from the Delaware Division of Small Business to purchase new equipment for custom cake orders, hire additional staff and extend operating hours for special events.
The fresh interior includes the work of artist Nadia Zychal, whose trompe l’oeil also graces the walls of nearby Benvenuto, and much of the wall décor was gifts from customers.
The redesign also includes a fun kids’ picnic table.
Empanadas remain the Robles’ claim to fame, but you’ll also find platters with rice, such as pork chops or shredded pork shoulder.
The menu includes Cubano sandwiches, breakfast dishes and, of course, such sweets as guava cake, tres leches and cream cheese flan.
Don’t be surprised if some dishes are creative takes on the traditional. Nutella empanada, anyone?
While the staff gets accustomed to the larger digs, My Sister’s Fault recommends online ordering at orders.My-Sisters-Fault.com
Washington, D.C., natives know all about Lebanese Taverna, which also has locations in Arlington, McLean and Baltimore. Now beach residents can see what all the buzz is about.
During the pandemic, the Middle Eastern restaurant group started a neighborhood delivery service, including stops at the beaches.
It was so popular that the trips resumed.
On Friday, Jul 21, the truck will come to Lewes, Rehoboth and Bethany Beach. Order online in advance and show up at the designated time to pick up your meals
For instance, the Lewes delivery is to St. Jude the Apostle Church parking lot off Route 1 near the Nassau bridge.
When the truck pulls in, you’ll see everyone streaming from their cars like kids around an ice cream truck. It is genuinely that good.
Summers sips in the garden
The garden is between Bardea Food & Drink and Bardea Steak in downtown Wilmington.
The ancillary events lead up to the Women of Hospitality Conference on Nov. 8 at The Queen Theatre in Wilmington.
Attendees include women who work in restaurants, hotels, catering, sales, tourism and related markets.
More open at the beach
Nectar Café & Juice Bar, a brunch/lunch spot in downtown Lewes, recently announced that it will open a second location.
The new spot will be in downtown Millsboro, an area that is experiencing a phenomenal amount of growth.
Surf Bagel recently opened a fourth restaurant in nearby Long Neck. (There is also a new Surf Bagel in Milford.)
In 2021, Lisa McDonald purchased the Lewes site on Neils Alley off Second Street. She was the longtime manager of The Buttery under its original owners.
An opening date for the Millsboro location has not been announced.
Scout Café in Wilmington’s Triangle section has given new meaning to iced coffee.
