Delaware Dines Out Week

Next week starts DE dines out. I was wondering if anyone is taking advantage of this chance for a 3 course pre-fixe menu for $30 at all these cool restaurants. I have reservations at Columbus Inn. I haven't ever been and have heard awesome stuff since the re-open. I am excited to report my finds.

  1. Had dinner at the Columbus Inn last night and it was great. The ambiance was romantic and dim, the music was surprisingly hip and the service was excellent.

    My boyfriend and I did the Dines out week menu. It started with an amuse of spiced fig soup shooter with blue cheese. Then I had celery root soup with potatoes, bone in porch chop with red cabbage puree and baby carrots, then for dessert, a chocolate ganache with marshmallows, peanut brittle and malted ice cream. I do have to say that maybe my favorite part was the cocktail. I order the Angels Trumpet which was a blackberry bramble with tarragon. It was delicious.

    I am heading to Domaine Hudson for dinner tonight and am looking forward to another stellar evening. I hope to report back good stuff.
