Wilmington Is On The Map!

Did you see that Forbes recently named Wilmington among the top cities for New Yorkers to getaway alongside DC and Philadelphia? Check out the great things that Katie Chang has to say about visiting Wilmington!

What to do:

Though many associate this Delaware town with politics – Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden resides here – there’s far more to do than hopefully spot the politician out and about. Longwood Gardens, formerly the private estate of Pierre S. du Pont, is an immaculately maintained botanical garden that’s especially dreamy this time of year. Founded by Pierre’s brother Henry Francis, Winterthur is a garden and museum with an exceptionally strong collection of furniture and decorative arts. Want to dive deep into local history? Then visit Hagley, a museum and library where the Du Pont family first settled. But no matter what, stop by Capriotti’s – the original location’s in Little Italy – at some point for The Bobbie, a sub stuffed with all the makings of a traditional Thanksgiving feast.

Where to stay: 

The Gold Ballroom of the historic Hotel Du Pont is where Joe Biden and Kamala Harris announced their joint ticket, but the adjacent restaurant, the recently unveiled LeCavalier, is serving up plenty of buzz as well. Under the thoughtful care of chef Tyler Akin (from DC’s Komi and Philadelphia’s Zahav), the cuisine is French with a contemporary twist. From the plating – the shareable ribeye is presented on a vintage Versace dish – to the setting – the dramatic dining room was gorgeously preserved – eating here always feels celebratory and special. But no visit is complete without the heavenly coconut cake. Perfectly layered and fluffy, it’s made even more indulgent with toasted coconut flakes and rum crème anglaise.
