The ambiance at Hotel du Pont’s Green Room is nothing short of sumptuous. The intimate entryway, lined with Italian mosaic tile, opens into the dramatic two-and-half-story dining room.

With its tablecloths and sweeping floor-to-ceiling drapes, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Wilmington restaurant isn’t designed to create a loud buzz of conversation: You’ll hear musicians in the minstrel’s gallery.

The DuPont Theatre is just down the hall, so chances are good that if you time it right, you’ll spot a celebrity or two.
