I came down to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, this weekend to visit my parents. Usually, travelling places outside of urban areas can be challenging when you’re trying to eat local, sustainable and/or organic – or if you have food issues (I’m wheat free – probably should be gluten free – and am a vegetarian.)
Well, I have to say, I don’t have to worry any longer. We ate at Nage Restaurant on Rte 1 (it’s past rte 24 but before you get into Rehoboth proper) and had an amazing meal. They serve food from two local farms and stay as local sustainable and organic as they can get. To top it off, they cater to vegetarians and vegans, and they’ll work with you if you have food allergies or problems. I had a plate of vegetables – now that might not sound too exciting, and I unfortunately can’t put the taste explosions into words, but it was one of the best meals I’ve ever had!
They’re currently hosting a Farm to Table event, where every Thursday during the summer they’ll prepare dinners made with fresh local produce. I think the dinners are actually held on the farms, but you’d have to phone for more information. Reservations are 302-226-2037.
Nage has a sister restaurant in Washington DC.
