Eat Here: Three Wilmington Restaurants To Try

Wilmington is known as the banking city but recently it has become a culinary hub. With a wide variety of restaurants and types of food available from the riverfront to downtown, it is easy to spend a few hours trying to figure out where to eat. Need some help figuring out where to go? Check out these places suggested by the Washington Post.

Summarized from the article “Where to Eat Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner in Wilmington, Delaware” from The Washington Post.

The city has been the return address for an outsize proportion of American corporations, particularly banking, thanks to business-friendly regulations. That led to an impressive big city skyline, but the areas surrounding the main business district are growing as draws. Neighborhoods that once housed things like trolley barns and mills where DuPont manufactured gunpowder are now trendy enclaves, and a 1.75-mile walkway along the Christina River on the east side has emerged as a center for food and entertainment.

Looking for breakfast? Eat at Scrumptious (; 1715 Delaware Ave.; 302-482-1029), it feels just like you’re walking into someone’s house and being invited to breakfast at a counter fabricated by a thoughtful DIYer with pride of ownership. The menu is inspired by the staff’s world travels, with tastes of India, Mexico and Manhattan.

For lunch head to the Christina River to eat at Big Fish Grill on the Riverfront (; 720 Justison St.; 302-652-3474), part of a restaurant group that has a pretty solid stranglehold on the Delaware dining scene. Grab a seat on the covered patio, equipped with plenty of fans so even a particularly warm day is comfortable. While you’re still reading over the menus — there are two, both long, one that’s a base and the other featuring that day’s available seafood — you’ll get a basket of saltines and a complimentary scoop of fish dip to help you decide. Oysters are available raw and in a number of preparations.

When dinner rolls around check out Ulysses Gastropub (; 1716 Marsh Rd.; 302-691-3456) has a name that evokes both the 18th president and a James Joyce novel. The writer’s stream-of-consciousness style may be behind a menu that celebrates the origin of the dishes from all over the country and an ever-evolving list of beers on the 25 taps.
