Chef Tom Hannum of Buckley’s Tavern in Centreville

Hannum hasn’t been able to get away from Buckley’s much since the tavern reopened last year, but when he does, he heads to Piccolina Toscana in Wilmington’s Trolley Square neighborhood. “It’s a comfortable atmosphere and the food is always good,” he says. “We’ve never had a bad meal there.” Hannum, who lives in Middletown, also enjoys Cantwell’s Tavern in Odessa.
