Dove Pointe in Salisbury was THE place to be on Thursday, May 19 for Delmarva foodies. Thirteen restaurants competed in the 13th Annual Taste of the Town with Delmarva Eats, presented by The Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce and Evolution Craft Brewing Company.
Open to the public, attendees enjoyed unlimited food samples, local craft brews, and a full bar.
Throughout the event, attendees cast their votes for their favorite dishes in each of three categories – Simple Tastes representing casual, light fare; Signature Tastes, representing upscale, more refined dishes; and Delectable Desserts, representing the crème de la crème of Delmarva desserts.
The Signature Tastes category winner was Mad Hatter Cafe. Executive Chef Victor Subervi and Owner Thomas Ownby served a Sweet Pea Farro Risotto, topped with pan-seared rockfish and a drizzle of blood orange gastrique. The garnish was micro wasabi & red chilli pepper threads.
Roadie Joe’s Bar and Grill owner Jeremy Norton and Chef Jason Myers took home top prize for the night in the Simple Tastes category with a White Miso Braised Short Rib, topped with a jicama slaw and watermelon infused honey, served on a mini pretzel bun.
Cakes By David took the top prize in the Delectable Desserts category. Owners David and Barbara Wharton served a mad assortment of desserts, including tiny pies, cheesecakes, assorted cookies, peanut brittle, and LOTS of cupcakes, including to-die-for Boston Cream cupcakes!
