A CPA turned restaurateur opens a wine bar and bistro in Wilmington. Domaine Hudson Wine Bar & Eatery focuses on wine by the glass and a new American menu.
There are 40 plus wines available by the glass, most under $10 a glass.
Although LaBan finds the menu “a little off, an awkward blend of a traditional appetizer-entree format and a half-hearted stab at ‘small plates'” he finds plenty to like. The best of the appetizers included seared scallops and lobster tail mango-cucumber salad. In the small dish category a venison chop is “succulent,” and a juicy Moroccan inspired pork chop also rates highly. And for the main course “the luscious fillet of potato-crusted rockfish ringed by an herby sauce verte, a racy Austrian gruner veltliner from Krems was ideal,” but the chicken breast was chewy and overcooked.
All in all an excellent place to enjoy wine and good food.
