Food & drink: Farewell to Forgotten Mile and  first Two Stones location


In an all-too-common announcement we see this time of year, Forgotten Mile Ale Housewill close its doors on Jan. 5.

“We have recently decided that we are going to close down after the new year. We want to thank all of our customers over the last four years for your continuous support. We value the friendships we have made and the people we have met over that time. Of course we are sad that our time here is over, but cannot say enough about how wonderful an experience it has been spending time with you, our guests, as well as building strong relationships with our staff, vendors and customers during that time,” a message on Facebook reported.

The restaurant will remain open through the Fifth, with the exception of New Year’s Day.

Forgotten Mile is named after the area between Rehoboth and Dewey Beach.

Forgotten Mile faced tough competition in the growing Coastal Highway area near Rehoboth. While the area is now a year-round dining spot, competition has intensified with numerous openings and closings.

In Rehoboth itself, highly regarded A(Muse) is closing after being sold to a new operator.

The location will also serve as the headquarters for the six-restaurant chain, which also owns 2SP Brewing in Delaware County, PA.

Two Stones focuses on craft beer and chef-driven menu items in a family-friendly atmosphere.

A chicken sandwich from Down Under tops Popeyes’ offering

Left over in my notes for 2019 is a fried chicken sandwich that has Popeyes beat by a mile.

It will take about 24 hours by air to reach Pembroke Bar and Kitchen in a suburb of Melbourne. Australia.

The crispy buttermilk fried chicken sandwich features, bacon, coriander & kewpie mayo in a soft bun. The price is about $14 the U.S, with another three bucks or so for fries. It was worth every penny. – Doug Rainey
