Hockessin | Critics

Redfire Grill & Steakhouse
400 Lantana Drive, Hockessin, 235-2600, platinumdininggroup.com/redfire/
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, coolspringsfishbar.com
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, nantucketsrestaurant.com
Nantuckets has outlasted every restaurant in Fenwick except the Dairy Queen. It’s the cozy atmosphere and the famous Chowdah.
