Krazy Kat’s Restaurant
Though northern Delaware may be suffering from McMansion fever, with larger houses going up on shrinking lots, Montchanin remains an oasis just off the western bank of the Brandywine Creek. Located along bucolic Delaware Route 1, it’s a quaint country village hidden in plain sight.
Krazy Kat’s restaurant is part of the Inn at Montchanin, which itself incorporates the restored houses of this 19th-century hamlet. There are 28 rooms and suites in all, in case your romantic lunch turns into a romantic weekend. Krazy Kat’s is a seri- ous but comfortable restaurant with a great menu and a decent wine collection. Its Bloody Mary is also one of the best in the Wilmington area.
The Bayard House
Many people don’t realize that there’s a trilogy of small towns that constitute the epicenter of local Hunt Country, whether one rides to the hounds or breeds and trains thoroughbred horses. They may know about Unionville and Fair Hill, but few realize that the area around Chesa- peake City is also rich in horse farms and green agricultural acres.
So you should feel right at home at the Bayard House, which sits on the southern edge of the scenic Chesapeake & Delaware Canal in Chesapeake City. The Bayard has outside seating downstairs in the bar area. Instead, sit upstairs and breathe in the atmosphere of the historic building itself, which dates back to the 1780s. Plus, you get a better view whenever one of those huge ocean-going vessels passes through from one bay to the other.
Of course, we should mention that the food is great, as the Bayard is one of the best primarily seafood restaurants in the area, and the bar service is also quite good.
Where else to go? Pick a small town you haven’t been to recently and try exploring. Oxford? Delaware City? Port Deposit? Maybe you’ll uncover something exciting, perhaps not. If nothing else, the drive itself may prove to be as enjoyable as the destination.o
