Suggestions for Rehoboth?

Lauman Jul 25, 2009 03:01 PM

We're spending a couple of days in Rehoboth Beach in late September. We need recommendations for lunch and dinner. Any comments on Blue Moon or Eden?

    If you go to Blue Moon, make a reservation, as it fills up. Instead we went to Eden, and though our waitress tried to please us, it was a grade B experience. several of the interesting garnishes on the menu were not on the dishes that came out; some were added when we complained, some were not. the "tea smoked duck salad" may have had a puff of a cigarette, but did not taste smoked. however the locally farmed pork was great: served pink as requested, with creamy grits and a gutsy cherry sauce.
    We also were seerved the wrong wine at first. It was not a bad meal, but with entrees in the $25 to $35 range, it should have been better.
    I liked the more informal and inexpensive PigFish better.
    If you go to Lewes, you can get a delightful meal of tapas at Azafran. Look up my recent review on the Mid Atlantic board if you like.

      For lunch, check out Greenman Juicebar and Bistro.
      I was recently pleasantly surprised by some of the seafood at Mariachi's.

      Hi Lauman, My family's favorite Rehoboth restaurant is The Cultured Pearl. Please go to the Mid Atlantic board and do a search because there has been a lot of Rehoboth discussion in recent months. Here are two threads I do not want you to miss: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/637929

        It's not haute cuisine......but Nic-o-bolis is a "don't miss" place for Rehobeth......their take on a Stromboli is fabulous, Be prepared to wait...its a big place but always busy.

          Nicola's is actually the name of the restaurant. Nic-o-boli's are the stromboli food they serve.

          If the Back Poarch is open, it's quit good.

              ms. chow, go to the mid-atlantic board and do a search of the area. there have been many good rehoboth discussions recently.

            I like Dogfish's pub in Rehobeth.

              Fins is my favorite. It's very dependable and they have a great happy hour. The bar fills up fast, but there is a 2nd bar upstairs.

                Arenas deli for lunch
                2 great restaurants are in Bethany and worth the drive. Blue Coast is on your right as you go down route one just before you get into Bethany and has superb fresh seafood. DeFibo's is on route 26 about a quarter mile west of route one and has outstanding higher end italian food including a great double cut veal chop and usually some homemade intersting pasta dishes, fresh fish. Both of these restaurants would easily hold their own if they were in DC
