The Past—Updated in 2012
Spring means celebrations of local history—Dover Days, Day in Old New Castle, etc. That gives us an appetite for dining with a sense of tradition. Here is a favorite place that is to their town what City Tavern is to Philadelphia: Jessop’s Tavern in New Castle is cozy and warm, with sturdy wooden chairs and a warming hearth. Prime rib is a favorite. So are shepherd’s pie and fish and chips. The 18th-century courthouse across the street is a reminder that you left much of the modern world behind when you crossed the city line. 322-6111, jessops-tavern.com
