Hotel DuPont - (Value $459 + $45.90 taxes) With a storied elegance and tradition befitting one of the most prestigious hotels in the world, the HOTEL DU PONT stands as a magnificent bridge between Wilmington, Delaware’s rich past and cosmopolitan present.   Since welcoming its first guests in 1913, the hotel has remained a Gilded Age icon, a monument to a time when artistry, grace and sophistication ruled the day and an era when travel meant something special and exciting. Then and now, arriving guests are greeted by accommodations and social areas framed by ornate, hand-carved wood, mosaic and terrazzo floors, and imported European chandeliers — all first created by the finest French and Italian craftsmen of their time and beautifully maintained for over 100 years. Discover a destination that, despite its history and reputation, remains an undiscovered gem among regional properties in the Brandywine Valley, beloved for its lavish style, exceedingly personalized service and coveted downtown Wilmington location.

Centreville Café - (Value $110) For Breakfast enjoy an omelet, smoked salmon or poached eggs Florentine, with our own house-made baked goods of scones, muffins, breads and croissants. Lattes and cappuccinos regarded as best in area. Gluten free menu always available. In the afternoon enjoy a selection of handmade hors d'oeuvres and small bites for two which include a selection of our proprietary cheese spreads, triple cream cheeses, aged cheeses, pate, breads and chips. Enough to complete a perfect afternoon, make a bottle of wine magical or get your dinner started in style. Centreville Cafe, opened in 2003, is known for its personal quirky atmosphere, gorgeous gardens, delighting clients, and upscale catering from Montrachet Fine Foods. In the same block as Buckley's Tavern and Collier's of Centreville, to make your visit to this historic village easy! Owned by Susan Teiser, Bailli of The First State Bailliage.

 

Pizza by Elizabeths -(Value $100) PBE extracts the glamour from Elizabeths past to present, vintage to modern and European nobility to old Hollywood.

Enjoy elegantly casual dining with deliciously healthy pizzas, gourmet salads, luscious desserts — all made fresh on the premises daily from the highest quality, all-natural ingredients.

Buckley’s Tavern - (Value $100) Buckley’s has always been a favorite meeting place for all kinds of folks... from world-renowned artists, to professional athletes, from our everyday local clientele to travelers passing through. In our parking lot, Rolls-Royces rub wings with pick-up trucks and the occasional "six in hand" horse carriage, of course, and the past mingles with the present... old memories are cherished and new ones are made. Buckley’s Tavern offers casual American “comfort cuisine” in our tavern and two inside dining rooms as well as outdoor dining areas, including our totally renovated rooftop bar and grill. Buckley’s ownership includes Tom Hannum CEC, AAC Conseiller Culinaire Provincial de Mid-Atlantic, Vice Conseiller Culinaire de The First State Bailliage
