Three eateries have bubbled up to the top of our don’t-miss list. The Hotel Rodney shares lobby space with a cozy little bistro called Beseme. Serving three meals daily, it pairs crêpes, omelets, and quiche with a small bites menu of dishes such as grilled eggplant salad, warm figs and goat cheese, and roasted quail.
Over in the Villages of Five Points shopping area (closer to State 1), Fish On reels in the crowds. This publike restaurant feels casual and family-friendly. Its menu is huge and ambitious. Best eats include the halibut over sautéed spinach topped with crab.
Our third fave keeps getting better. Café Azafrán dishes up tapas along with a small but fine selection of Spanish wines. On a village side street, it makes for an easy place to tuck into mussels, lamb tenderloin with chickpea salad, and grilled veal sausage.
Strolling the Shops
Lewes’ shops include spots for ladies to find resort-ready clothes, local jewelers, and antiques. Whenever we are in town we don’t miss going on a spree.
Puzzles twists your logic with thousands of mind-benders, crosswords, jigsaws, brainteasers, and more. It’s one of the best shops of its kind anywhere. At Peninsula Gallery you’ll find original art, especially the affordable glass works of local Deb Appleby.
