Run Away to The Del Restaurant and Bar – Sorry You Didn’t Win Powerball
GM Keith Thompson Welcomes You to The Del
Tucked down a Voss side street on Del Monte, on the back side of Cornelius, lies a quiet oasis of comfortable casual country club-style dining. Modern, sleekly clean and neat, The Del Restaurant and Bar welcomes lunchtime visitors with a small, yet wide open space and plenty of outdoor patio seating (approx. 50 seats).
Menu items include a fine red pepper bisque swirled with sour cream and a lump of salty shrimp tucked under the surface.
The grilled Bosc pear, arugula, frisee, toasted almonds, goat cheese salad drizzled with champagne vinaigrette and large blueberries is sure to please both you and your workout trainer.
Angel hair pasta with tomato and asparagus in a lemon butter sauce and shrimp can become pasta and chicken, in a quick exchange and simple blink of the eye.
The lobster wedge salad on crispy brioche (roll), with avocado buttermilk dressing was presented with a flourish. (Note to try: Del Shannon – Runaway – Sandwich is made with chicken, sauerkraut, swiss cheese and tangy dressing on rye bread. Cheese board, mussels and lamb, too!)
Water glasses and coffee were immediately refilled; waitstaff was extremely attentive and friendly. A lovely way to while away the hours affordably and off the beaten path on the southwest side of town. The restaurant remains in good company with Arturo Boada’s across the street, Cornelius for plant-shopping and Bramble nearby.
In all, a pleasant, and as yet only modestly discovered, consistent dining experience.
Run there while you still can.
