Please join us in congratulating two Wilmington restaurants on being featured in Eater Philly: The 38 Essential Restaurants in Philadelphia. BPG owned Le Cavalier at the Green Room, located within the renowned HOTEL DU PONT, and retail tenant Bardea Steak stand out among Philadelphia restaurants and shine a welcoming spotlight on Wilmington’s foodie scene.

Le Cavalier:

“Chef Tyler Akin brings his passion for European fine dining to Delaware in this French-forward restaurant at the grand Hotel du Pont. With flavorful dishes — such as their duck cassoulet (served with flageolet beans and Toulouse sausage), lamb tagine, and branzino a la bouillabaisse (generously accompanied with shrimp, scallop, crab, and saffron) — it’s definitely worth the trip across the bridge to dine.”

Bardea Steak:

“Acclaimed Chef Antimo Dimeo shines in this lively steakhouse in Wilmington. At Bardea Steak, they’re not just about serving large cuts of sizzling beef — but hosting an incomparable experience. Their 9-course chef’s tasting menu that includes steak, seafood, pork, and poultry (for $150 per person) is a regional masterclass on how to dine well and effortlessly.”
