offered by celebrated chef Tom Hannum at Buckley’s Tavern.
Located along Kennett Pike in Centreville, Buckley’s Tavern is one of those rare rural eateries that can mimic the bustling vibe of a city restaurant. The structure dates to 1817, when it was a private dwelling. It’s been an eatery
in some form or another for nearly a century. With his many culinary honors, chef and part owner Tom Hannum is
a local institution. Even so, his varied menu is more American comfort food than haute cuisine. It’s likely that anyone who’s worked or shopped anywhere north of Wilmington has eaten here
at least a few times, either at the bar, in one of its prized booths or in the more sedate main dining area. 5812 Kennett Pike, Wilmington, (302) 656-9776,
