Hotel DuPont Green Room (Wilmington): Be prepared to be amazed by the towering ceilings, the ornate decorations, the precious art on the walls. And just imagine – this is the very room where Prince Ranier of Monaco proposed marriage to Grace Kelly, who would become Princess Grace. Accented with Versace china, vaulted ceilings and glowing chandeliers, The Green Room is revered for its impeccable French cuisine, and has won the Four-Diamond AAA Award for 28 consecutive years.
Krazy Kat’s (Montchanin): Located in the lush rolling hills of northern Delaware’s “Chateau Country,” Krazy Kats is beloved for its intimate, hunt-country charm and slightly off-center, whimsical attitude. As an added bonus, it’s also located amidst the charming Inn at Montchanin Village & Spa, making this an ideal place to grab a cozy room for the night or enjoy a stroll through the nicely landscaped grounds.
Domaine Hudson Wine Bar and Eatery (Wilmington): Intimate and cozy, Domaine Hudson upholds a casually refined edge, and an always relaxing vibe, with a steady focus on fine food and wine. Try to snag a seat neat the fireplace for some pre-meal cocktails, nibblies and laughs.
Eden Restaurant (Rehoboth Beach): Known as a truly great restaurant in a great restaurant town, Eden is the kind of place that has perfected that smooth, sexy and sassy kind of laid-back elegance, thanks to its impeccably tasteful and artsy-edged décor and creative food. A great place to find quiet refuge in an out-of-the-way booth, discreetly concealed by lacy curtains.
The Buttery (Lewes): Here’s how the day will be: First, stroll the streets of this quaint seaside village for some antique shopping and maybe a walk by the water. Then, as the day begins to fade to shades of gray, slip into The Buttery and find a quiet corner of this grand old Victorian home. Sip a little; laugh a little; and raise a toast to how fine a day it has been.
