I just read in the paper that on the heels of the Public House opening up on Market Street; another restauranteur from Philly is planning on opening something in Wilmington. Anyone have scoop on that? I'm really curious.....

    jessicheese, I read that too and wonder the same, could we be lucky enough to get the likes of Jose Garces or is that too much to ask?

      My hopes are Garces or maybe Starr is expanding to Wilmington. Doubt we'd be so lucky, but you never know!!!

        Starr has never impressed me. He has a bunch of "chick" restaurants that are very successful, but not all that great IMHO. ....With the exception of Morimoto.

          I know some people don't enjoy his restaurants, and I understand that. Personally, I find them enjoyable, have had some amazing meals, and I like the concepts. I think Wilmington could really use something with his style and vision. As a person who has made a career of bringing corporate travelers to the area (not an easy thing sometimes) I think something like a Starr restaurant would be a fantastic addition to Wilmington. Not necesarily Starr, but something or someone recognizable.
