Summer is back and here's what's new!
The crew behind Ava’s and Theo’s just opened Hammy’s in the Safeway shopping center in Rehoboth. Decadent milkshakes for kids, boozy adult shakes, tater tots, chili, and more than 30 burgers. (Check out the shakes in the photos – omg.) Hammy’s is named for Hamlet, the owner’s beagle. Love it!
Un-Wined at the Beach opened yesterday (in the old Azzurro space), and two more downtown Rehoboth restaurants have signs up on Baltimore Avenue. Drift and Addictive Tacos. Check out the amazing dishes planned at Drift on their FB page. Gorgeous!
The Lewes Oyster House (in the former Jerry's on 2nd Street, Lewes) is aiming for a July 4th opening. Hmmm, brand new restaurant AND bar right next door to my office. How conveeeenient!
The Rehoboth Foodie reports that Munchies will open in Ocean View and will offer a fusion of Indian and Mexican flavors, i.e. their Chicken Tikka Taco. Sounds fun! Also that Fins Fenwick is now open in the former Smitty McGee's, and YUZU Sushi is where Flying Fish used to be (also in Fenwick). And it looks like Red, White & Basil is finally underway on Route 1 in Rehoboth.
Kabab Falafel Addiction opened late last month in the Shoppes of Camelot next to Starbucks on Route 1. Am hearing great reviews about Poke Bros in Rehoboth (behind the SeaShell shop). They offer fresh fish Hawaiian style and non-sushi options as well.
Fans of Revelation Brewery and Tomato Sunshine have no doubt seen a bit of construction lately on the lot adjacent to Ocean Boulevard Furniture. (Which, BTW, if you haven’t been to that furniture store, I mean, WOWZA! Go check it out.) The Developing Artist Collaboration has been busy building an awesome space for the groovy West Side Creative Market. Now open every Monday, and alternating Wednesdays (with an emphasis on the music) and Fine Art Fridays as well. Artisans, live music, food trucks, and a new bar!
