To make a reservation at the Green Room, call Hotel du Pont at 302-594-3154, or book through OpenTable. You can also call the restaurant directly at 800-338-3404. Plan ahead — if there’s a show at either the hotel’s DuPont Theatre or the nearby Grand Opera House, the dining room might fill up before 8 p.m. (The hotel often offers a special buffet in its Brandywine Room to accommodate crowds.)
It also gets crowded at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Wilmington restaurant around the holidays, when families reunite here for a meal. Another popular time to visit is Sunday mornings. The French eatery is renowned for its brunch — and with dishes like raspberry waffles with crème anglaise and salted caramel (for those who like it sweet) and pan-seared monkfish with black lentils (for those who like it savory), it’s easy to see why. Call ahead for a Sunday time slot, especially in December. Save room for dessert (such as the napoleon layered with dark chocolate, white chocolate amaretto mousse, raspberries and a berry coulis), a major claim to fame for the Green Room.
When making your reservation, request a table near the colossal, richly draped windows. But on pleasant days, opt for a seat overlooking the statue of Caesar Rodney on his horse, a Wilmington landmark.
