Hockessin | Critics

Redfire Grill & Steakhouse
400 Lantana Drive, Hockessin, 235-2600,
The true magic of Carl Georigi’s brawny chophouse lies in its details. It’s the care taken to make sides and salads really good, to top the burgers with maple-pepper bacon, and to plunk cherries in the Manhattans.

Dover | Critics

Cool Springs Fish Bar & Restaurant
2463 S. State St., Dover, 698-1955,
You name it, Cool Springs has it, from clams to crab cakes to rockfish stuffed with crab imperial.

Fenwick Island | Critics

Nantuckets Restaurant
Del. 1 and Atlantic Ave., Fenwick Island, 539-2607,
Nantuckets has outlasted every restaurant in Fenwick except the Dairy Queen. It’s the cozy atmosphere and the famous Chowdah.
