In keeping with its company across the street in the heart of Wilmington's downtown (the Grand Opera House), Chelsea Tavern puts a classy twist on typical tavern dishes. For instance, Chef Nuwan Karunarathna and the rest of the talented team don't serve French fries—instead, hand-cut sweet potatoes, Idaho potatoes, and crispy onions are mixed with Chelsea fry spice to comprise the tavern's signature trio fries. The pizzas emerge hot with a smoky tinge from a wood-burning oven, while the pan-seared scallops arrive with sweet crab and English pea risotto. Even the desserts receive an upgrade: the chocolate peanut butter tart includes chocolate ganache, peanut butter mousse, and crushed peanuts. Attentive, knowledgeable service complements this eclectic menu to make dining at Chelsea Tavern a great choice for a romantic dinner for two or for a brisk, quality meal on the way to a show.
Chelsea Tavern's precise approach to food carries over to its expansive beverage selection. The restaurant features a variety different beers, including 31 on tap and more than 200 by the bottle or can. It also has 21 wines available by the glass, which you can sample before catching a show at a nearby venue or just putting on a puppet opera at the table.
