From cutting-edge gourmet food to good-old-fashioned country classics, Delaware dining embraces all styles and tastes, but shines best when the focus is on local seafood (like steamed crabs and fresh-caught fish), and ethnic treasures from around the world. Foodies craving a cutting-edge experience should try the trend-setting restaurants of Rehoboth Beach, Lewes or Wilmington. Visitors seeing an authentic regional flair shouldn’t miss trying one of Delaware’s subs or cheese-steak sandwiches (Capriotti’s is a good bet); and more adventuresome travelers will want to try their hand at “cracking crabs” at an authentically rustic Delaware crab house (try Sambo’s). Families will find affordable, tax-free dining options throughout the state – especially in beach towns such as Rehoboth Beach, Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island. If you can, try to catch one of Delaware’s beloved food festivals, whether it’s the Mid-Atlantic Food & Wine Festival or St. Anthony’s Italian Festival.
