is not expected at a hotel! I was visiting a friend who lives nearby, and she told me this was the best filet she'd ever had, so we headed here, and I was surprised when we pulled up in front of the Hilton hotel by the Christiana Mall.
The atmosphere leaves a little to be desired but by the time you finish your meal, you won't care about the stuffing showing through in the booth.
We were seated immediately and given menus, but my friend said we already knew what we wanted. We started out with the French onion soup - very good! I also had a glass of wine. The wine menu was a good size (not too big!) with a varied selection.
Our waitress brought warm, crusty bread with real butter and roasted garlic in ramekins. What a lovely combo! The garlic added a special something few restaurants offer... yummy!
We had ordered the petite filet, and the waitress told us this restaurant was the only one in the state with a 1600 degree oven. After she left, I asked my friend what difference that made. "Crispy on the outside, and juicy and flavorful on the inside," was the smiling reply. (Granted, Delaware is a small state, but I guess this is something about which to brag.)
We got our orders, and this filet was, indeed, the most succulent, melt-in-my-mouth visit to deliciousness I had ever taken!
Our waitress was very friendly and invited us back soon. I can easily see why this is one of my friend's favorite haunts because this is the sort of place where you know your service will be attentive, but not overly so, and the food is a step above comfort food, but oh, so good!
