The original McGlynn’s Pub (8 Polly Drummond Shopping Center, Newark, 738-7814) has long been the place where Pike Creek Valley folks go for a casual meal, a drink and a game. Tuesday is half-price burger night. The best Italian food in the area is served at Vallé Cucina (4752 Limestone Road, Wilmington, 998-9999) in Pike Creek Shopping Center. The prices are fair, and the wine list, a labor of love for the owner, is excellent. But don’t stop at Italian. Vallé’s crab cakes are outstanding. New on the scene is Soybean Asian Grill (4702 Limestone Road, Wilmington, 636-0800), a cozy, modern place that serves traditional favorites and fun fusion dishes.
