Reading time: 2 protocol

The Chef’s Haven Cafe has closed after a short walk in the Independence Mall off Concord Pike in north Wilmington.

The social media announcement indicated that the other location of the breakfast and lunch place in Hockessin is still open.

Last autumn, Chef’s Haven took over the former location of the De La Coeur Café.

In addition to artisanal bread, cheese and sausage products, the Hockessin site also offers ready-made meals.

I don’t give a fork Owner moves into the coffee world

I don’t know about you, but I’ll miss having a cheesesteak and mac and cheese sandwiches from I Don’t Give a Fork every now and then

Owner Leigh Ann Tona says she made her last cheesesteak this week and moved on to a new business, Sleeping Bird Coffee.

The café is located in the redeveloped building on the outskirts of Wilmington that houses the Wilmington Brew Works and La Pizzeria Metro. In addition to coffee, a breakfast sandwich menu is planned.

In a Facebook post, Tona estimated that 16,000 steaks had been cooked from the food truck.

The I Don’t Give a Fork Food Truck was not idling. With no downtown office workers, Wildwich switched from brick and mortar to Don’t Give a Fork rental car and received rave reviews for his hamburgers called Slam Burgers by Wildwich.

The burgers are available near Concord Pike north of Wilmington.

Main Street Alfresco returns to Newark.

The City of Newark and The Newark Partnership announced that the popular “Main Street Alfresco” outdoor event will resume on Wednesday, March 24th from 4pm to 9pm

Main Street will be closed to vehicle traffic from Chapel Street to South College Avenue to allow outdoor seating at several restaurants.

Last year’s Alfresco has proven to be successful. In the early days, alfresco dining may be for tougher souls, although temperatures will continue to rise.

Parking is available on community lots 1, 4, 6, and 7 in Newark as well as privately owned lots. Check out the park finder here.

Additional outdoor events on Main Street take place on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month (April 14, April 28, May 12, and May 26).

A drive through just Dunkin in New Castle

It’s a sign of the times that the pandemic is (hopefully) easing.

Dunkin ‘will officially launch its first next-generation drive-thru restaurant, the first in the Philadelphia area, on the 194 N DuPont Highway in New Castle.

The Dunkin ‘Restaurant has a double drive-through and a walk-in window.

Those who pre-order via a mobile app can jump on top of others by going straight to the pickup window.

Dunkin’s coffee competitor Wawa is also experimenting with drive-up restaurants, and several fast food chains have not reopened their dining rooms.

The WOWorks (Salad Works) family of brands has added another restaurant concept to its growing portfolio, The Simple Greek, a franchise for casual Greek restaurants.

Simple Greek is located on Concord Pike north of Wilmington.

WOWorks was founded in December 2020 When the parent company of Saladworks, the country’s leading fast-casual salad brand, acquired Frutta Bowls and Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh.

The Simple Greek was founded in 2015 by an entrepreneur and TV personality Marcus Lemonis. WowWorks has more than 200 locations across the country focused on healthier foods.
