5 New Restaurants for Your Next Night Out

Antonia DePace | October 2, 2020 | Food & Drink Lifestyle

Outdoor dining at The Wayward

Consider these new local eateries when making dining reservations.

1. Añejo

Head to the Piazza for executive chef and partner Ricardo Camacho’s duck enchiladas mole—they’ve quickly become a favorite at the Mexican restaurant. To wash them down, look to the lengthy list of tequila-based cocktails.

2. White Dog Delaware

Local artist Jay McClellan’s colorful puppy portraits found a new home on the walls of Fearless Restaurant Group’s White Dog Glen Mills location. Opened just last month, the 175-seat restaurant—plus another 130 on the outdoor patio—is helmed by executive chef Michael Selser. Expect favorites like the avocado BLT and rainbow trout with succulent butternut squash puree, along with new mouthwatering additions.

3. The Wayward

Tucked inside the Canopy by Hilton hotel, this American brasserie’s menu is inspired by French dishes—think corn beignets and escargot croquettes. It also has one of the largest gin programs in the city. Take a seat on the expansive patio, complete with a lush green wall, for views of this fresh stretch of East Market.

4. Rosalie

An Italian-centric wine list consists of 120 fantastic bottles to accompany menu items inspired by rustic Italian cuisine. You can find dishes like polpo‌affagato (octopus, San Marzano tomato, garlic and ciabatta), cotechino con lenticchie (Friulano pork sausage, lentils and soffritto vinaigrette) and a variety of stuzzichini (traditional Italian bar snacks) at the restaurant located inside the Wayne Hotel.

5. Juno

The plant-filled Spring Garden restaurant and bar space is a new destination for cocktails and shareable bites. Think blood orange margaritas and Mexican shrimp cocktail, or a smoky mezcal paired with al pastor and pineapple tacos. Plus, weekend menus include specialty brunch dishes (tres leches French toast, anyone?).
