Bethany Beach

Put the lime in the coconut, add a hint of lemongrass and a few chilies, fill it with heaps of fresh fish, then eat it all up. That’s the kind of fun, intriguing cuisine the cosmopolitan 14 Global has surprised us with for the past few seasons. Follow with a tapas portion of tandoori-seasoned octopus. Do yourself in with coconut-curry glazed mahi mahi hot off the grill. Return soon.
 (14 N. Pennsylvania Ave., Bethany Beach, 616-1035, www.14global.com)
 

 

Maryland

With its stone walls, massive fireplace, vintage colors and meals served on fine china with classic stemware, the Colonial Fair Hill Inn harkens back to another time. Yet the menu stays thoroughly contemporary. An ever-evolving menu means constant surprises, such as salmon poached in court bouillon with pho in miso-ginger-shiitake broth and a concasse of sweet kumato tomato and lemon balm. (3370 Singerly Road, Elkton, 410-398-4187, www.thefairhillinn.com)
 

 

Lewes

The signature seafood chowder and all-lump crab cakes never go out of style at The Buttery. Nor does the elegant, white-cloth dining room. Braised chicken with chanterelles and baby carrots in a reduction of Reisling and bouillon typify the approachable, perfectly executed fare. The wine list bridges the classic and contemporary, from La Célestière Châteauneuf-du-Pape to Silver Birch Sauvignon Blanc. (102 Second St., Lewes, 645-7755, www.butteryrestaurant.com)
 

 

Newark

Brick walls and barn planking create a casual, relaxing atmosphere that is perfect for enjoying the modern Italian fare at Taverna. From a starter such as grilled artichokes to delicious sandwiches of cured meats to hearty meals such as cannelloni filled with chicken, prosciutto, fontina and sautéed spinach in cream, every dish is a winner.

As if the regular menu at Nage Bistro and Wine Bar won’t keep you coming back—seafood a la Nage, anyone?—there is a regular schedule of specials: Meatless Mondays, Wine-Oh! Wednesdays, Farm Fresh Thursdays and Seafood Supper Sundays, with live music on Fridays. Cool, casual, always superb, Nage is beach dining at its best. (19730 Coastal Hwy., Rehoboth Beach,
226-2037, www.nagerb.com)
