Green Box is Growing

Wilmington Green Box has opened its gates for another summer of cold pressed juices at its Green Space on the 400 block of Market (and now at the Rodney Square Farmers’ Market on Wednesdays). But before the summer ends (fingers crossed, if construction goes well), it will be joined by Green Box Kitchen, a new fast-casual vegan restaurant that will offer takeout with seating for about 10-12 people on the corner of Fourth and Market.  And that’s not even the biggest thing Green Box entrepreneur Jason Aviles has going on this summer…

V Trap

If you are a vegan, you are used to skimming the perimeter of a menu looking for a leaf symbol or a bold-faced V to find those couple of entrees meant for you. It isn’t that you can’t find good vegan food in Wilmington, but why must its procurement feel like a treasure hunt? V-Trap Kitchen and Lounge, the new restaurant at 607 N. Lincoln Street in Wilmington’s Little Italy, turns that model of food service on its head. The entire menu is filled with vegan fare, but Ssh! you don’t have to tell your carnivorous friends. That’s the “trap” part of the restaurant’s name. The food is so healthy and addictive, it will ensnare those people in your circle who regularly dismiss the plant side of the menu.

A Night with Character - Lots of Them

The Halloween Loop is almost 40. In other words, we’re old enough to know better.

But it’s tough to shake old habits, so forgive us if we fail to act our age on this one night of the year. Or, act like we’re someone else, say…Donald Trump, Prince Harry or any of the Kardashians. Wilmington may be the place to be somebody, but on Halloween Loop night it’s the place to be somebody else.

Taste of Trolley

Looking for some new dining options to get you out of your rut? Come to the Taste of Trolley Square, a yearly showcase of one of Wilmington’s most eclectic neighborhoods. Stroll the sidewalks and sample small plates from over a dozen of the area’s hottest eateries.

Toni Tipton-Martin

Toni Tipton-Martin’s resume has more components than a Southern Soul Brunswick Stew. She was the first African American woman to serve as food editor at a daily newspaper (Cleveland Plain Dealer), has authored a James Beard Award-winning book on southern cooking, and started the SANDE Youth Project, to help improve the lives of vulnerable families batting childhood hunger and obesity. And that’s just a few of the more impressive ingredients she’ll bring to the table on Friday, September 7, when she appears at the Delaware History Museum’s Copeland Room...
