• Bistro on the Brandywine in Chadds Ford called it quits in February 2013. We’ll sorely miss the tasty moules frites and friendly BYOB policy.
• The Del Rose Café gave up the ghost in May. A Trolley Square icon, the red gravy spot was known for its chopped antipasto salad. Alas, no more.
• Luca Ristorante, which occupied a former bank in Millsboro, has left the building.
• The Captain’s Table on the Forgotten Mile in Rehoboth Beach in its old incarnation has set sail. No more old favorites with a choice of two sides—a perk that’s gone the way of the complimentary salad.
• Say goodbye to Top China Buffet in the Graylyn Crest Shopping Center in North Wilmington. But all is not lost. At press time, a sign promised the opening of Kung Fusion Asian Cuisine.
• P.U.F.F. in Greenville, which pioneered gourmet to-go 30 years ago, went poof in January. The website promises a cookbook. Eventually, you’ll be able to do it yourself instead of picking it up to go.
• Pomodoro Restaurant in Wilmington’s Little Italy has served its last plate of pasta. The restaurant closed.
• Coldstone Creamery on Del. 1 in Rehoboth Beach has been put on ice. (There is still one in downtown Rehoboth.)
