Restaurant Week LogoHi! I'm Mary Simpson, director of finance and administration with the Greater Wilmington Convention & Visitors Bureau for 28 years. Our office staff looks forward to Wilmington's Restaurant Week each year. We usually choose a participating restaurant and lunch out of the office, as a group. Each restaurant offers a choice of two or three entrees for one very reasonable price. Last year most of the staff missed out due to a special off-site meeting, so four of us, Rose, Lyn, Ella and I, decided not to miss-out and went to the Green Room at the Hotel du Pont. What an easy choice! Honestly, you feel like a queen anytime you visit the "Hotel" as it's known by locals. On this day, the Green Room was offering an amazing selection of entrees, each more exceptional then the next.

Can't wait to go again this year!
