Chadds Ford for Foodies

So you’re headed to Brandywine River Museum to see the new Jamie Wyeth retrospective. Make a day of it. Before and after your tour, check out these great places to eat on U.S. 1:

Hank’s Place

Directly across the road from the museum, homey Hank’s serves fresh food in a friendly atmosphere. Breakfast lines are door busters on weekends, so get there early. This was a favorite of the late Andrew Wyeth. Prices are great all day. (610) 388-7061,


Brandywine Prime

Also right across the highway, this Butler-group chophouse offers big food, big preps and big wines in an old stone inn from 1703. (610) 388-8088,

Pulpo contadino—tender chunks of lemon-splashed Spanish octopus with cannelini, diced pepperoncini and herbed crostini—exemplifies the fresh Italian fare served at this stunning newcomer. (484) 770-8631,


The Gables

Seasonal farm-to-table served in—don’cha know?—a converted barn. It’s just a short hop down the highway. It also offers some Pennsylvania wines by the glass. (610) 388-7700,

Chadds Ford Restaurant and Pub

The local stalwart—since 1820—recently re-opened under new ownership. Stone-oven pizzas, fresh burgers, craft brews—perfect. (610) 358-2050
