Shorebreak Lodge, Restaurant, Review, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware, The Art of Wining and Dining

I stumbled upon a restaurant, a skip and a jump away from the award winning Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk more than a few years ago. It is very special to uncover a great dining spot whether seating at the bar, at a table or coming for small plates.

To me I find it whimsical. I am talking about Shorebreak Lodge Restaurant located at 10 Wilmington Ave. in Downtown Rehoboth Beach, DE. Tel. 302-227-1007. Website? http://www.shorebreaklodge.com

Shorebreak has charm and understated sophistication. The food is simple, and delicious. At the bar suggestions for wine pairings were a big help.

At this time of the year the restaurant is open from Wednesday through Sunday.

Over the past couple of months I have visited Shorebreak, and, obviously, I like it since I keep coming back.

So let me tell you what we have had. If they offer Shishito peppers, please have them. They are not hot, they are actually sweet, and served charred they are best.

I can roast my own beets. Love them and theirs were perfectly roasted and with an appealing preasentation.

Soup of the Day? The winter squash on a cold night hit the spot.

I think they have the best Grilled Octopus around. It is perfectly seasoned and cooked; not tough. Just try it. I have it every time and it is always on the menu.

There are plenty of restaurants in Rehoboth Beach. You just have to find the ones that serve good food, at good prices in a comfortable setting.

Enjoy the Christmas Season. Check my FB Page AboutMyBeaches for more information on where to shop, what to do, and what to cook for dinner.

Rehoboth Beach Eats! Shorebreak Lodge, Restaurant, Bar, Downtown Rehoboth Beach, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

A full plate is becoming a thing of the past.  Eating tapas style is a more adventurous and delightful way of sharing a meal with friends.  And, that’s exactly what Sharon, Richard and I did on Wednesday evening at Shorebreak Lodge, located at 10 Wilmington Avenue in Downtown Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.  Tel. 302-227-1007  Website?  http://www.shorebreaklodge.com

Glad I made reservations, because, my new go to restaurant was so crowded.  Great drink specials, lively atmosphere, close to the Boardwalk…and excellent service, as well.

Our stimulating dinner conversation had us laughing, practically, all night.

Shorebreak Lodge is offering a very eclectic menu.  There is something for everyone, even for some of us that like to try dishes that are considered je ne sais quoi.

For the table:

Burrata Mozzarella with Butternut N Figs.  Burrata is from the Italian region of Puglia.  It has a milky flavor and several textures, as well.  The outer layer is spongy but, inside, it is creamy and also very spreadable.  Great with crusty bread.  This dish is awesome!!  Totally recommend it.

Shrimp N Grits with Chorizo, Tomato and Anise Sauce.  Love it when grits have a smooth consistency and are full of flavor.

dscn4844

Brussel Sprouts, Bacon & Dried Figs….combining cabbage flavor, the saltiness of bacon and the sweetness of figs. Yum!

dscn4842

Roasted Butternut Squash, just a simple dish to add to our grazing.

Rehoboth Beach is a culinary destination….so many restaurants, so many chefs outdoing each other in friendly competition.

Have a great a week-end!!

Crawling! Rehoboth Beach, Shorebreak Lodge, Restaurant, Bar, Downtown Rehoboth, Wilmington Ave., 133 Steps to The Beach!! Southern Delaware, Delaware Beaches

A Crawl…a slow intentional one….In Downtown Rehoboth Beach a crawl is the thing to do.  Stop and taste, crawl, stroll, shop…..stop and taste again.  This is going to be a good week-end at the Delaware Beaches.

If you are in town and want something tasty to start your evening, please stop at Shorebreak Lodge located at 10 Wilmington Avenue.  Tel. 302-227-1007; they do accept reservations.  But, you might be able to grab a table if you go early, or even sit at the bar.  It does have a good atmosphere.  Website?  http://www.shorebreaklodge.com.  You can also follow them on Facebook.

This was my second visit to Shorebreak.  On my first visit a post was developed.  You can check it out by clicking on the month of May, 2014 and scrolling to the 4th.

We followed a recommendation….the Achovy Pizza was to be ordered and shared.  This pizza had boquerones.  Boquerones are delicate white sardines.  Many years ago I first tasted them in Spain…they are used as appetizers, in a variety of dishes and are available all the time.  Boquerones are pricey, here in the U.S.A., and very trendy these days.

The Anchovy Pizza….Naan, black olives, boquerones, and caramelized onion…..great flavor and well done.

The second dish we had was the Grilled Octopus.  It was served with avocado, melon, tomato, cucumber, radish and a vinaigrette of basil and oil.  Look at the size of this appetizer.  Perfect for sharing…delicate flavors and mild.

Our Crawl was starting on a good note….  On to the next….a post in the making.

Destination? Shorebreak Lodge, Restaurant, Bar, Downtown Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Review, It’s Restaurant Week in Downtown Rehoboth Beach!! Shorebreak Lodge is 133 Steps to the Atlantic Ocean, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

There are 27 participating restaurants in one square mile in Downtown Rehoboth Beach.  That’s pretty impressive!!  This is the perfect week to try restaurants in Downtown Rehoboth that you had not even thought about trying before for whatever reasons.  There are great deals going on….and, you still have time because this event is ongoing through Friday, June 6th.

I have to give a shout to Rehoboth Beach Main Street, the sponsor of this very popular event.  I was so thrilled to find out that I had won a $25 gift certificate to be used during the week.  It came just in time because I used it on Tuesday, June 5th.  Rehoboth Beach Main Street draws attention to the downtown district.  It is the heart of Downtown Rehoboth Beach, bringing to this charming seaside community so many events for the entire family.  For more info., please visit http://www.downtownrehoboth.com.

It is going to be 5 years in July since I started this blog.  I have lived at the Delaware Beaches for so many years, that I do consider myself a “local”.  A blog is a “diary” of sorts.  The writer puts out his or hers experiences.  I do love promoting the Delaware Beaches.  So, I have been doing just that; reviewing restaurants, finding the best corn, the farmers’ markets, activities, and events, and the usual bla, bla, bla….

One evening, a month or so ago, I was on Wilmington Avenue when the lights and front of a restaurant caught my attention.  I am sorry to say that I had not heard about it, but, I kept it on the back of my mind, after reading the menu. It would be an interesting one to try.  Guess what?  They have been in Downtown Rehoboth Beach for 3 years!!  What kind of a local am I?

Shorebreak Lodge was the destination of one of my usual suspects, Debbie, and I, on Tuesday.  We had not read any reviews…we were going with no preconceived ideas.  How perfect was that?

Shorebreak Lodge is located just 133 steps to the Atlantic Ocean, on 10 Wilmington Avenue.  Tel. 302-227-1007.  Website?  http://www.shorebreaklodge.com.  Of course, I forgot my camera which was unusual, the iphone would do, I hoped.

Even before I tasted any of the food, I liked Shorebreak.  We live at the beach, it is a laid back casual atmosphere; the one visitors come to experience.  I was drawn to Shorebreak, then, when I tasted the food…I decided I could not wait to go back again.

It is called Shorebreak Lodge because the owners are surfers…Montauk, NY, a favorite spot.  The location is practically on the beach….shorebreakers are found at the water’s edge.

Debbie and I decided to sit at sidewalk….with the big windows next to us.

Infused water, iced tea and a little atmosphere to start our evening.  The service was attentive and not obtrusive.

Shorebreak Lodge can sit up to 70 customers.  The menu changes constantly, bringing customers the fresh ingredients of the day.  The food is not complicated….food allergy concerns?  Please let them know.

The Roast Beets, Bucheron and Lentils….I love beets and so does Debbie.  The combination of colors and flavors enhanced our tastebuds.

At times, and depending how they are cooked, octopus can be a little tough, but not on Tuesday.  My Grilled Octopus “Romesco” was very flavorful and tender.

The Hake (Cape Cod), en papillote, with bacon chutney, carrot n’ fennel was presented beautifully and tasted just as good as it looked.

And the Surf n’ Turf of braised short ribs and sea scallops….I loved.  Risotto accompanied the short ribs, which by the way melted in your mouth.  Always a fan of scallops, these were cooked and seasoned to perfection.

Our selections for sweet endings were:

The strawberry puff pastry shortcake.  Strawberries are in season, so we had to.

The Avocado and Coconut Milk “Creme Brulee”….first time seen it on a menu, so, we had to….and by the way, it was awesome.  It was so good to be able to distinct the avocado and coconut flavors.

Very pleasantly surprised….so now you know…let me know how your experience is.  Check it out when visiting the Nation’s Summer Capital.
