Rum Runners - Smoked Brisket Bowl - red peppers, blue cheese, bbq mayo, red onion, jalapeno bacon jam and arugula with quinoa

The Dewey Beach Bar & Grill Brings Invigorating Beach Fare to Pass-A-Grille

The Chicken Sandwich with Grits at The Dewey

When you think of beach dining, a few things probably come to mind: ordinary fried bar bites, cheap beers by the bucket-full, and gaudy Floridian decor.

Sola Bistro & Wine Bar: A Foodies Utopia

Rabbit Cacciatore at Sola Bistro & Wine Bar

Sola Bistro is a foodies utopia! Lori and I went for the first time last weekend. We’ve been dying to go for a while now, but if you know us, you know that we don’t often leave the 33701—especially me. You have to drag me kicking and screaming.
