review [De Lara, Wilmington]

Had dinner at the new place that just opened where the old Tuscana used to be.The name is De Lara and it is Mediterranean. The food was excellant and the service was good. I had the ciopino, and my husband had a hamburger. The ciopino was spicy and had lots of perfectly cooked fish and shrimp and scallops, clams and mahi mahi in a tomato broth. My husbands hamburger was also cooked as he ordered it. The prices are reasonable. I will bring my girlfriends back here during the week to try some to the lunch items. The place was not crowded but it is January in Wilmington. The new look is sleek and elegant. A welcome addition to Wilmingtons restaurant sceen.

andi..if you haven't had a decent meal in 5 or 6 years at the Oceanic..why do you keep going back..for the view?

What did I do wrong with my clams?

sounds like you got a bunch of bad clams...i've had some that were terrible salty and had to be discarded...try changing fishmonger...a local place that harvests them daily would be best...how long did you keep them refrigerated. they may have been old

where can i go for a good sunday brunch? besides Deluxe

Chowhounds in Wilmington NC!!

Not to justify rude waitress but things do cost more here than in NY. Maybe its the unavailabilty of specialty items. or how far they have to travel to get to Wilmington. years ago we couldn't even get this items so I don't mind paying up
