Where to eat | Everyone in Wilmington seems to have a memory of the Hotel Du Pont’s restaurant, the Green Room. It was stately, formal, and a favorite for special occasions. When the DuPont company gave up ownership of the hotel, its new owner, Buccini/Pollin Group, invested in a refresh and recruited Philly’s Tyler Akin to lead the kitchen. Today, the space has an inviting French brasserie feel with a menu to match. You can’t go wrong with a menu staple like steak frites, but do also try the seasonal dishes here. Another tip: Grab a seat at the picturesque bar while you’re there.
