New restaurants with familiar owners

The former locations of a(MUSE.) and Ruby Tuesday have been the subject of much speculation since last year. Both new restaurants opened recently, but you may recognize the owners!

Theo’s Steaks, Sides & Spirits is now open in the Baltimore Avenue building that used to be home to a(MUSE.). This is the third Theo’s Steakhouse and the first in Delaware. The other two locations are on Maryland’s Eastern Shore in Cambridge and St. Michaels. Theo’s is owned by Chris Agharabi, who also owns Ava’s Pizzeria and Wine Bar in Cambridge and St. Michaels.

After an extensive renovation of the former Ruby Tuesday location, Atlantic Social is now open on Coastal Highway, Rehoboth Beach. A self-described “approachable coastal restaurant,” Atlantic Social is a seafood restaurant owned by Derek Fink and Zach Diogo, who also own Blackwall Hitch on Rehoboth Avenue.

Games are always a great escape from reality, even when circumstances are normal, but they are now more important than ever for me. It’s much less stressful to attempt to survive the cordyceps outbreak or the t-Virus with a controller in your hands than to think about the real-life virus that is COVID-19.

Ron Murphy: I remember, in the early 70's, a slice of pizza was a quarter. Anyone remember Dayton 's Fried Chicken? It was on the boardwalk where Ryans is today. Back in the the 70's two wings and a roll for fifty cents.

John Buchheit: Congrats Grotto Pizza!

Linda Rayias: I used to go to Harvey's Lake as a child. Have always loved Grotto 's, I remember the walk up store on Rehoboth Avenue in the 60's.
