North Wilmington is full of great places to eat, as well as great places to dine. In the latter category, Harry’s Savoy Grill (2020 Naamans Road, 475-3000) has been the standout place for almost 30 years. Classic decor—beautiful wood paneling, soft lighting—and a menu of traditional favorites with contemporary touches have given it staying power. That’s not to mention the restaurant’s constant emphasis on great beef. Sit in the beautiful dining room, go casual in the bar area, or split the difference by sitting on the gorgeous patio—you might think you’re in another world.
A drive down the U.S. 202 corridor reveals one great place after another. For well over 50 years, The Charcoal Pit (2600 Concord Pike, 478-2165) has served delicious burgers and ice cream creations, often to people who hung out there as teens—and who still hang out there, but now with their grandchildren. Bustling Hollywood Grill (1811 Concord Pike, 655-1348) is a local fave for great tasting food, value prices and an all-day breakfast menu. (The Belgian waffles are outstanding.) Those with a taste for the mildly exotic get their fix of Asian fusion at Le Shio (2303 Concord Pike, 888-0145) and Jasmine (3618 Concord Pike, 479-5618).
