One thing that REALLY upset me...we made a reservation for a party of 20. I met with the manager and everything. When we arrived that night, they had made us a "special" menu that was limited to only the most expensive 6 things on their menu. In addition, the regular menu offers select 1/2 portions and that option was eliminated. They could have told us when they called to confirm the reservation....it was sneaky!

What You'll Get

Locally sourced cheese is always preferable to moon cheese, which was found to have dangerously high levels of Buzz Aldrin's brain waves. Enjoy a fresh, earthbound meal with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of contemporary fare and drinks at Back Burner Restaurant in Hockessin.

The Zagat-rated Back Burner treats taste buds to toothsome, handcrafted dishes made from seasonal and, whenever available, locally sourced ingredients. Executive Chef Kristin McGuigan creates mouthwatering, constantly changing menus for brunch, lunch, and dinner that showcase her dedication to fresh, flavorful, from-scratch repasts. Dinnertime diners may start with the signature pumpkin mushroom soup ($4/small bowl), a guest favorite sure to awaken partakers' inner bowl-licker. Maritime-minded munchers can explore the flavorful fathoms of the sushi-grade ahi tuna paired with Peruvian white sweet potato puree and rainbow chard ($25), and carnivorous cravers can carve into classic 6-ounce center-cut filet mignon ($29) and exotic kangaroo loin ($26) with flame-borne authority. Vegetable aficionados treat tongues to meatless masterpieces such as the opulent eggplant napoleon, sporting gardeny layers of herbed ricotta and mozzarella cheeses, tomato basil sauce, and fresh basil ($19). End an edible excursion by sinking forks and sweet teeth into a dreamy dessert from pastry chef Stephanie Rutkowski's decadent assortment of house-made treats.

Visitors to the Back Burner are invited to snuggle, sip, and sample at plush banquettes and peek at platter preparation in the windowed kitchen. In addition to elegant bills of fare, the restaurant sports an extensive wine list, providing ample glasses ($6–$12) and bottles ($22–$145) with which to toast, clink, or blow bubbles into with a straw. The Back Burner offers an array of events and specials every night of the week, including a Monday night prix fixe feast and a Thursday charades-free game night that features a menu of meats from around the world.
