“Extraordinary La La Land”

Wilmington News Journal
For more than 12 years, La La Land has been welcoming adventurous diners to its magical spaces in the ocean block of Wilmington Avenue in Rehoboth Beach.
Situated in two beautiful, 100 year-old, Victorian beach houses just steps from the Atlantic, La La Land is home to elegant, romantic dining and superb cuisine.
This award-winning restaurant is best-known for its innovative preparations of fresh seafood and prime meats, as well as its carefully selected wine cellar and its experienced, friendly staff. The hand-painted interiors provide a magical backdrop to the superb cuisine. On the new menu, the chef features tempting seafood dishes with exciting international flavors, as well as the perennial favorites such as honey-roasted, thyme-flavored rack of lamb. For accompaniments, the owner Jeff Brady suggests the gorganzola-laced mashed potatoes and the hearts of romaine topped with (crumbled) blue cheese and sun-dried cherries (passionfruit dressing).
Patrons gather expectantly in the intimate La La Land Lounge for cocktails before dinner or a brandy afterwards. You can dine in the colorful, intimate dining rooms or on an outdoor patio set in a sheltering bamboo forest.
Wherever you relax, it’s certain to be a welcome trip to an extraordinary place of fine dining.
