Fenwick Island Eats, Our Harvest, Delaware, Small Plates, Shareables, Large Plates, Bar, Gluten Free, Vegan, Southern Delaware, Restaurant, Review, Relaxed Dining, Casual Atmosphere, Delaware Beaches, Good Food? Will Travel!!

 

When we share a meal with friends, it is so much more than food (really?)…and, when we share it with girlfriends, and for purposes of this post, like the Swirl Girls, then it is really priceless.  Some of us have known each other for years while others, are getting to know each other very fast.  Here we were trying to figure out which table would be the best one.  Right after Memorial week-end we had the place to ourselves since we arrived early.  We did not want a big table.  We like to be cozy in order to get that conversation going.  The group had just gone to watch the Book Club, if you get my drift.

The majority of us had not yet dined at Our Harvest.  This restaurant located at 1106 Coastal Hwy., Fenwick Island, DE 19944, opened last year.  Every day, at 5:00 p.m., you can come in and experience a way of eating that has become so popular in the U. S.  Telephone is 302-581-0377.  No reservations are accepted.  The website is http://www.ourharvestde.com.

As the season progresses please have in mind when you would like to eat.  You have to have a plan because it gets crowded at the Delaware Beaches.  If you arrive and there is a wait, you could have cocktails, relaxing in their bar or in any of the very comfortable leather sofas.

There is an open concept kitchen.  You really can see how the kitchen is running.  I have to tell you that I probably should have come to try Our Harvest last year.  I love their sister restaurant, Liquid Assets, in Ocean City, MD, and I did not want to like this one more.  Guess what?  They are completely different.

The menu was presented and our server knew the menu well.  She explained the concept of eating small plates and shareables.  At that moment all we wanted was some wine.  Having watched the Book Club, wine was very much consumed by the characters.  It was time to relax.  The wine that you see at the table was from South Africa.  A full bodied Merlot called Immortal Hero.

At first you are a bit overwhelmed because you, actually, do not know how much to order for the table.  And, we all have our likes and dislikes.  We managed to do a good job and we were all very pleased with how the evening was progressing.  Could not believe Jane Fonda looks that good at 81… I know, I know.

We all decided to have a small plate to start our dining experience.  Every time I see the offering of a Grilled Caesar Salad, I order it.  Years ago I had it at a restaurant in Hagerstown, Maryland.  Since then, a few have gotten close at how good that one tasted so I wanted to see how this one would be, more so because it had Boquerones which are white anchovies.  They are very mild and usually they are marinated in vinegar.  It gives the salad a kick.  I will have to say that this Caesar was excellent.

Others ordered the Salt Roasted Beets & Two Cheeses.  Served on a wooden plank it had whipped ricotta, Stracciatella, local greens, black pepper and beet vinaigrette. Stracciatella cheese is produced from Italian buffalo milk in the southern Italian region of Apulia.  They use a stretching and shredding technique.  This particular small plate could have been shared by two people.

We ordered the Spring Harvest Flatbread.  A crispy crust filled with local peas, ramps, morel mushrooms, local asparagus, ricotta, gruyere mornay, green garlic pesto and crispy capers.  Ramps are a special type of wild onion, found in eastern Canada and U.S.  And a Gruyere mornay is a bechamel sauce that has Gruyere cheese added to it.  It was delicious but to tell you the truth we probably ordered too much.  Not that we did not eat it, by the way.

“Friendship is a delicious meal to be shared off one large plate.”  So, we decided to order our large plates.  This particular dish I truly loved.  It was called the Vegan Feast.  It was a whole wood fire roasted head of cauliflower, benne cashew crumb, and a lemon garlic vegan aioli.  At first we thought it was cheese but it was the benne cashew crumb. Cashews are lower in fat than other nuts. You can find online a lot of recipes for this vegan seed.

A very popular dish at Our Harvest is a whole Amish air chilled chicken…Arnold Palmer brine, (sweet tea and lemonade brine chicken, I believe), wood fired with lemon and rosemary.  Liquid Assets has an amazing chicken, as well.  Both chickens are completely different and delicious in more ways than one. We ordered TWO.

Needless to say, no need for dessert.  We decided that definitely we would be back.  Thanks to our server and also to the hostess that so graciously explained to me how the restaurant worked.

And so I end my post with this quote from John Lanchester….”Hospitality is central to the restaurant business, yet it’s a hard idea to define precisely.  Most, it involves being nice to people and making them feel welcome.  You notice it when it’s there, and you particularly notice it when it isn’t.  A single significant lapse in this area can be your dominant impression of an entire meal.”

Until next time….

Dewey Eats, Two Seas, Restaurant, Rooftop Dining, Parking, Dewey Beach, Delaware

“One of the nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”  pavarotti

And when we stop and enjoy dinner with friends, the experience is priceless!!

Dewey Beach was somewhat quiet last night, if you can imagine.  During the day the yearly event of the Running of The Bulls might have deterred some to even have dinner in town.  Not us.  My friends, Debbie, Amantha, and Sharon had a destination in mind…..Two Seas.  This restaurant has been in Dewey for over 30 years.  It is family owned and run.  On any single night all owners are there, greeting you at the door.  There is no rush to get you in and out.  Friendly conversation, more so when one of my friends is a true “native”.

Rooftop Dining…so glad we were able to get a table because the views are the ocean on one side and the bay on the other.  The night was comfortably warm, not much of a breeze, though.  Perfect for eating al fresco.  Two Seas is located at 1300 Coastal Highway.  It is at the corner of Van Dyke Ave. and Coastal Highway.  Tel. 302-227-2610.  There is parking underneath, which not many restaurants have in the area.

I usually try to avoid going out on the week-ends….it gets hectic at the beach.  This week-end, Friday and Saturday with friends was a lot of fun.

Let’s get to the topic at hand…eating.  The Delaware Beaches are a dining destination.  Chefs are outdoing themselves with so many innovative dishes.  Last night our choices are always on the Menu.  So many years of preparing these dishes…they truly have perfected them.

They do run specials and last night’s Spicy Tuna & Avocado Maki Roll is something we shared while having some wine.

I had not realized it but my choice of the Sweet Onion Crusted Red Snapper is the same dish that I ordered in 2010.  It is delicious, oven baked served with Madeira sauce and caramelized onions that added a sweet touch.  Amantha and I had the same dish and both of us loved it.  This is a signature dish.

Debbie’s entree was the Cedar Plank Scottish Organic Salmon with potatoes and fresh vegetables….she said “All done to perfection, no complaints.” It was broiled with a maple glaze.

Sharon decided on the Two Seas Angel Pasta.  It was tossed with their own marinara freshly made with vine ripe tomatoes, fresh basil, olive oil, and toasted garlic.  Finished with parmesan.  This dish can be enjoyed by itself or you may top it with shrimp, scallops or chicken.

No dessert was necessary; we were completely satisfied.

Please note that there is no elevator and you do have to go up the stairs.

Relax, you are at the beach!!

Rehoboth Beach Eats! Blackwall Hitch, Restaurant, Review, Bar, Sunday Brunch, Live Music, Inside The Glass Dinner Series, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Delaware Beaches, Welcome to the Beaches

DSCN4604

It is the perfect time of the year to try one of Rehoboth Beach’s restaurants that opened this year. The summer crowds are gone. Locals come out and not having to pay for parking is a blessing.

So nice to get together with Debbie and Jody….birthday girl was Debbie.  Arriving early at Blackwall Hitch located at 52 Rehoboth Avenue in Downtown Rehoboth Beach.  Tel. 302-226-0550.  Website? http://www.theblackwallhitch.com/rehoboth

DSCN4606

Blackwall Hitch looks amazing inside.  Plenty of tables, comfortable enough that you are not on top of each other.  It is so well appointed, very chic indeed.

DSCN4605

DSCN4609

The expansive bar is on the other side.  From Wednesdays through Sunday live music begins at 9:30 p.m. until 12:30 p.m.  For more info. on who is playing, please visit http://www.theblackwallhitch.com/rehoboth/live-music

DSCN4608

Starting with The Blackwall Salad of mixed field greens, grape tomatoes, cukes, red onion and carrots, tossed with their signature house vinaigrette.  A simple salad with flavor and big enough to share.  I could have had a different starter but after eating my way through Portland, it was best to keep it low cal, if you get my drift.

DSCN4611

The Chicken Lemongrass Soup was loved by Debbie and Jody…roasted chicken, lemongrass, celery and onions topped with a fried veggie dumpling.

DSCN4610

People are talking about their Fish Tacos and our taco connoisseur, Jody, was the one to try them.  She said they were amazing, full of flavor.  Blackened Cajun Mahi-Mahi served in soft taco shells with spicy slaw, roasted corn salsa, avocado, feta cheese, pico de gallo and avocado sour cream, served with a side of herb pearled couscous.

DSCN4614

My Striped Bass was delicious, as well.  It was pan seared served with a chayote squash salad and lime butter sauce.

DSCN4613

Debbie’s Salmon Kale Salad was colorful…Grilled Atlantic Salmon, basil oil and kale salad with roasted red beets, mango, and candied walnuts tossed in their poppyseed lemon vinaigrette.

DSCN4612

No dessert was necessary even though there was plenty of temptation like Sminth Island Cake, Chilled Key Lime Panna Cotta, Monkey Bread, Chocolate Flourless Torte, Pineapple Upside Down Skillet Cake, Chocolate Truffles and more.  But we were so good.  Only coffee and tea, please.

Our server was attentive, more than attentive if I should say so.  It is feast or famine, some don’t care and others care too much.

Every Sunday there is brunch beginning at 10 a.m.  For more info. please visit http://www.theblackwallhitch.com/rehoboth/sunday-brunch

DSCN4607

Wednesday, October 5th Blackwall Hitch Presents – Inside The Glass.  This is their inaugural event of Dinner Series.  These dinners will take place the first Wednesday of the month and will feature a specially crafted chef’s dinner.  Multi-course dinners will be paired with drinks.  4 p.m. until 10 p.m.  Reservations are recommended.  This first dinner will feature a 4-course craft beer dinner menu.  Please check their Facebook Page for more information.

Blackwall Hitch offers other menus as well:  Gluten Free Menu, Kids Menu, Happy Hour Menu, Late Night Menu…just check their website above mentioned and click Menu.

So what can I say about our dining experience?  We loved the atmosphere, and the food was very good.  I had been told that it was pricey, but we found that it was a la par to all other restaurants in Rehoboth Beach at that level.

Dinner is even better when we eat together, catching up is always priceless with Jody and Debbie.

Travel 2016, Portland, Oregon, Ram’s Head Bar, Timberline Lodge, Mt. Hood, A National Historic Place

FullSizeRender (299)

This has been my year for traveling.  But you know what?  “Do me a favor…Stand up, walk to wherever the nearest window is, and just look outside.  You may not know this, but there’s an entire planet-worth of summers, friends, sunsets, street lamps, songs, late nights, great films, and night skies waiting for you.  Your life is as amazing as you want it to be, but first, you have to let it be that way.”  chad sugg

I took off for Portland, Oregon, to visit a friend that I had not seen since 1973.  We had so much fun.  The weather was pretty good in Portland.  I had no idea that it does not snow.  Maybe once or twice through the years.  What they do have for a winter is a day like we have had today at the Delaware Beaches…..grey and wet.  They don’t even get thunderstorms.  It is a drizzle.  That is probably why their soil is fertile and the wine is delish.

Arriving in Portland the first thing that caught my eye from the airplane was Mt. Hood. Towards the end of my stay we decided to go up to the mountain to check out Timberline Lodge.  The lodge was built in 1937.  Some of the scenes of the movie The Shining were filmed here.  They used aerial shots of the Timberline Lodge as part of its opening scene and also some other shots outside of the fictional Overlook Hotel.

FullSizeRender (312)

The inspiration for the Lodge was the mountain.  The architects used 3 themes to illustrate the regional heritage: hand-hewn timbers and hand-crafted furnishings to pay tribute to early pioneers, carved wood and wrought  iron designs to capture the Indian spirit, and carvings of animals and paintings of wildflowers to represent wildlife native to Mt. Hood.

FullSizeRender (301)

The timbers used were huge.  The lodge had the fire going.  It was rainy and cold.  Plenty of hikers last week.  We were hungry and thirsty so we decided to try the Ram’s Head Bar which is uniquely located on the second floor circular balcony.

FullSizeRender (304)FullSizeRender (305)

We ordered some drinks.  I decided to try Grady’s Spill…It is the short glass on the photo.  “It’s advocaat sir, it does tend to stain. I’ll just set my Bourbon and Advocaat down…right here”…from Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Shining” Eastside Distilling egg nog advocaat liqueur, Jack Daniels, angostura bitters; served on the rocks with nutmeg, cinnamon and hazelnuts.  It really tasted like an egg nog.  It was good!!

FullSizeRender (306)FullSizeRender (311)

And speaking of hazelnuts, Oregon is the largest producer of hazelnuts.  We ordered Smoked Hazelnuts and Charcuterie.

FullSizeRender (309)FullSizeRender (308)

A delicious Puree of Mushroom Soup with smoked hazelnuts, and green onions, and a Fire Roasted Tomato Soup with a rosemary crouton, and olive oil garnish.

The weather was conducive for a warm and comforting soup.  But this was just a tasting.  A dinner reservation was waiting in Portland where chefs are preparing some amazing dishes.  Talk to you later.

What’s Going On? New Foodie in Town, Sophia, Nicola Pizza, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Kid Friendly Restaurants, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

FullSizeRender (171)

I am Miss Sophia.  Most of the time my favorite past time is playing on the beach.  I am very new to this.  I am only 15 months old.  I am a fast learner.  Besides doing all those things babies do, I have become quite a foodie.  I like most everything.  I try it once and if I put a funny face my Mom usually knows that I am not too comfortable with such a unique taste.  One thing I love is ice cream, watermelon, and cherry tomatoes.

I love Italian food so we took off to Nicola Pizza.  They tell me that since 1971 it has been a favorite of residents and visitors alike.  It has 2 locations:  the original located at 8 N 1st Street and the second on 71 Rehoboth Avenue.  The second one is practically around the corner.  Tel. 302-227-6211.  Website http://www.nicolapizza.com.

DSCN3768

My Mom and my 2 grandmas were with me at the original location.  Nicola Pizza is very kid friendly.  No rush, stay as long as you want.

We ordered French Fries!  Sprinkling them with a little Apple Cider Vinegar is always good, but I just put ketchup on mine.  My Grammy calls this type of food Boardwalk Grub!  Not sure what she means, but I think I will be learning more and more about these favorites of all that come to the beach.  I forgot to tell you that it seems they all like their fries well done!

DSCN3760

Nicola Pizza is known for their Nic-o-Boli.  The original has ground beef and you can add all kinds of other goodies like, onions, cheese, sweet peppers, mushrooms and the list goes on.  They have a vegeterian ones, as well.  These Nic-o-Bolis can be also bought by the dozen.  Nicola Pizza also ships.

This is what the Nic-o-Boli looks like. Inside, it is hot and full of meat, cheese and sauce.

DSCN3764

My Grammy wanted to have it but did not want to eat all the dough.  She says summer is coming.  I want to tell her summer is here!!  Anyway, they have what they call a Nic-o-Boli in a bowl.  She added sweet peppes, and mushrooms.

DSCN3762

She loved it.  Guilt free she said.

Mama Nicola (Joan Caggiano) was making the rounds.  She always stops at each table to see if her customers are satisfied.  When she came to my table she decided to take a seat and watch me eat my spaghetti which by the way, I loved.  I slurperd those noodles right up and loved the meatballs, as well.

DSCN3766

Mama Nicola was so nice.  She just watch me eat and have a good time.

DSCN3765

From here we were off to the rides at Funland, also in Downtown Rehoboth Beach!!

I’ll be passing the word around as I see kid friendly places, here at the Delaware Beaches.  Night Night!!

Rehoboth Beach Eats! Eden Restaurant, Downtown Rehoboth Beach, Bar, Catering, Tried & True Restaurant, Delaware Beaches

DSCN3269

Eating is not merely a material pleasure.  Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship.  It is of great importance to the morale.  elsa schiaparelli

Meeting friends on trendy Baltimore Avenue in Downtown Rehoboth Beach….we were trying to grab dinner at favorite restaurants of mine before the crowds arrive and the meters come into effect.

Rehoboth Beach is known for its culinary excellence.  The chefs are really outdoing themselves.  I think when visitors arrive this week-end they will see that there are other restaurants now manking an appearance in town.  But I never forget the true and tried restaurants.  Over the years I keep coming back to those establishments that give me good service, let me chat with friends without intrusion, and serve food cooked with the best ingredients.

I always have loved Eden.  When someone asks me where to go in Rehoboth for a special dinner Eden always comes to mind.  The staff is so professional.  And don’t get me wrong I love plenty of other restaurants in Southern Delaware, but Eden is on the top of my list.

Eden is located at 23 Baltimore Avenue.  Tel. 302-227-3330  Website?  http://www.edenrestaurant.com

The website is informative.  Eden offers catering.  On Fridays Eden Classic Dishes are half price.  And don’t forget that the bar is always open.

Meeting Madelon and Cindi for dinner we arrived early, which was the perfect opportunity for photos.  The dining room is open and the booths are perfect for an intimate dinner.

At Eden there are always various desserts…..but the Chef’s Daily Whim was a tribute to the Almond Joy…..decadent and totally sinful!!

DSCN3264

I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Week-End.  Don’t be shy, try Rehoboth Beach Bests Restaurants….you will not be disappointed!!

Rehoboth Beach Eats! Mariachi, Cinco de Mayo, Restaurant, Bar, Spanish Cuisine, Latin American Cuisine, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

DSCN3312

Choosing Mariachi located at 14 Wilmington Avenue in Downtown Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, was a no brainer.  Have you had Yolanda’s cooking?  That woman can cook!!  And, she can cook diverse Spanish and Latin American dishes.  Mariachi has been in Rehoboth Beach since 2006.  Spanish and Latin American cuisine has always been so flavorful…it was not discovered just the other day.  Foodies have embraced this cuisine because there is so much to choose from.

dscn3990

Mariachi is open every day now.  Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m.  They offer Brunch on Saturday and Sunday.  The restaurant has 2 floors with 2 bars and on the top floor there is a great balcony where you can dine on beautiful summer nights and watch Rehoboth Beach show visitors why we love living here.  Great Happy Hour by the way.  The telephone is 302-227-0115.

dscn3988

Please check their website…http://www.mariachirehobothde.com

Unfortunately, it was really raining on Cindo de Mayo.  We had reservations, thank God.  The restaurant was packed, the line coming to the street.  My friend, Jody pushed her way through.  Some were looking at us funny as we passed through, but we did have reservations.  My party?  Some old and new friends; from left Lori, Jody, Julie and Kelly.

DSCN3302

A quick visit to the bar but we did not have to wait long to be shown to our table.  Some tables were louder than others, but ours was a little quieter.  I kept watching Yolanda as she handled all the customers with her usual smile as she walked from one side of the restaurant to the other, also asking customers how their food was.

DSCN3303

On Cinco de Mayo Mariachi had a special menu but you could also order from the main menu, which by the way it is extensive.

My friends ordered from the special menu:

Poc Chuc Tacos on a corn tortilla.  Poc Chuc is charbroiled pork which has been marinated in imported Mayan spices. The tacos came with pico de gallo and sour cream.

DSCN3307

And broiled Tilapia fish tacos on flour tortillas.

DSCN3309

What caught my eye was from their Main Menu….Masitas de Puerco Cuban Style.  These were pork morsels marinated in a “criolla” sauce and roasted in Sevilla’s bitter oranges.  Loved this dish and I would order it again on a heart beat.  The pork morsels just melted in your mouth.  Great seasoning….accompanied with rice, black beans, of course, sweet plantains, a bit of broccoli and rice.  The photos shows how good it looked.

DSCN3310

No dessert was necessary…Summer 2016 is almost here.

Service was very attentive even though the restaurant was so crowded.  The bill?  So reasonable.  Mariachi is one of those restaurants that serves the whole family.  Check it out.

Lewes Eat!! Heirloom, Restaurant, Downtown Historic Lewes, Delaware, Open 7 Days a Week, Dinner, Coastal Delaware, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware, Rose Dinner, Tuesday, May 3, 2016

DSCN3095

“Most heirlooms have been saved and selected because they have the best flavor and production in home and small market gardens.  We get the benefit of this long development cycle, as only the best producing, most flavorful, most memorable and most dependable varieties have made the selection through the years.  Delicate, weak or fickle varieties are no longer with us.”

Hello to Heirloon, located at 212 Savannah Rd. in Historic Lewes, Delaware.  Tel. 302-313-4065.  You may also find Heirloom on Facebook.  Website?  http://www.heirloomdelaware.com

DSCN3073

At this time of the year I am trying to visit some of the new and already seasoned restaurants in our area.  Pretty soon it will be a little difficult to park, get reservations….Yes, Summer 2016 is almost here.  Meters will be going up, you know what I mean.

My friend Cathy from Bethany Beach, and I, decided on Heirloom on a quiet week day a couple of weeks ago.  Have heard all good reviews but I like to see for myself.  Not all of us have the same discriminate palate.

I felt like I was home.  The restaurant is charming.  It exudes warmth.

DSCN3088

DSCN3087

A small gathering at the bar.

DSCN3093

Our table was in a cozy corner….drinks and bread were served.

DSCN3077

Our room was quiet and our service was unobtrusive.  Our server was attentive but she sensed we wanted to catch up, so she let us have our time.

We decided on a few appetizers.  I had heard that they had sweetbreads.  I ordered the Veal Sweetbreads in honor of my late husband, who totally loved them.  John ordered them every time he saw them offered at a restaurant.

These Crispy Veal Sweetbreds had a chili glaze, served with charred broccoli, egg yolk puree, and sesame seeds.  They were so flavorful, tender and delicious.

DSCN3079

Cathy ordered the Beets in a Garden, served roasted, pickled, raw, dehydrated, and puree, house whipped ricotta, brown butter crunch, and hazelnut “dirt”.  Beautiful presentation and tasty beets.

DSCN3078

Our choices for entrees were just perfect.

Cathy chose the Pan Seared New Jersey Scallops.  They have had scallops on the menu before, but these were new.  Fiddlehead ferns, asparagus, charred rhubard compote, and ramp pistou.  Ramp pistou is Provence’s much loved answer to pesto.  The French Pistou is made with soft herbs, oil and toasted nuts or seeds of some kind.

DSCN3081

Best Pork Chop at the Beach!!  This Double Cut Berkshire Pork Chop was huge and so tender and juicy.  Granny Smith apple puree, crispy brussels, fingerling potatoes, and shaved horseradish.  What a dish!!

DSCN3083

For dessert, we shared a sampler of ice cream and sorbet.  Refreshing and the perfect ending to such a nice meal.

DSCN3086

Megan Lee is the owner of Heirloom and was so gracious to show us around.  She has put so much work into this restaurant and it shows.  I wish her the best!!

Event:

Rose Dinner in conjunction with Southern Wine Spirits will take place on Tuesday, May 3rd.  It is a 5 course dinner paired perfectly with the proper wine for each tasting.  You may call 302-313-4065 to make a reservation or visit the Facebook Page.
