Dinner Menu

Wilmington Menu-Wine List

LET’S GET STARTED

Like any good novel, comedy show or rock concert, all memorable dinners need a good opening act. What could better to pair with your bottle of wine or craft cocktail than one of our appetizers? Enjoy great conversation with great company as you begin your meal and warm up your palate with new, interesting and enjoyable flavors and combinations.

SOUPS -N- GREENS

For soups we have our own famous Tomato Basil soup which has a great 20 year old story behind its unique flavors. For our New England Clam chowder, our challenge was to make one reminiscent of Union Oyster House in Boston and chef Pete knocked this one out of Fenway Park. All salad dressings are made in house (and why would any restaurant not do so), and taste the difference that utilizing true sheep’s milk Pecorino Romano (versus cheap off brand parmesan) on our Caesar makes. Finally, our southwest inspired crab and lobster salad is certain to please with flavors that will have you asking for a second.
