Dining notes: Brandywine Restaurant Week, Stewart’s adds Sunday service; Cecil County favorite to reopen dining room


Brandywine Restaurant Week gets underway

Brandywine Restaurant Week got underway on Monday and runs until Oct. 22.

A dozen and a half restaurants in the Wilmington area and Pennsylvania are part of the promotion, that features $15 two-course lunches and $35 dinner options with dessert. The special menus can amount to a savings of several dollars per meal over normal prices.

The focus is on non-chain restaurants that tend to pump more money into the community, due to the lack of franchise fees or corporate profit demands.

A couple of restaurant participants offer a carryout option.

Baker’s to reopen

Cecil County restaurant mainstay Baker’s will reopen on Oct. 16 after a remodeling project that took longer than anticipated for the six-decade-old establishment.

The restaurant on Augustine Herman Highway outside Elkton will be aided by a modified order from Gov. Larry Hogan that upped indoor dining capacity to 75 percent.

Delaware, which currently has a comparable positive rate of coronavirus cases, has stayed with the 60 percent occupancy cap.

Still, a six-foot distance between tables is still required in Maryland. That is likely to keep many restaurants below 75 percent occupancy figure.

Baker’s had limited service to take-out only four days a week. The menu showed some creativity with several types of mac and cheese as well as meals for four.

Stewart’s Brewing now open on Sunday

Stewart’s Brewing Co., a brewpub pioneer in located off Route 40 in Bear is now open on Sundays.

Like Baker’s, Stewarts had taken a cautious stance and limited service to carryout only after the state allowed indoor dining.

Stewart’s offers carryout with a discount in place and delivers the meal to your vehicle.

The brewpub will open at noon, in time for early NFL games.

Stewart’s, like many restaurants in the pandemic environment, is closed one day a week, in their case Monday.
