    If you’re in Delaware checking out Ernest & Scott, be sure to walk a few blocks down to the other restaurant Scott owns, Chelsea Tavern. Great beer selection, great food. And while you’re in the area, be sure to check out Ulysses (N. Wilmington) and Two Stones Pub (Newark.) It’s nice not having to drive to Philly to get good beer – we’re getting it in DE now too!
