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.
