This is another toss-up. There are three:
1. The Café Azafrán Haricots Verts (with toasted hazelnuts and gorgonzola) on Baltimore Avenue in Rehoboth Beach.
2. Those are neck ‘n' neck with the Sauteed String Beans at Confucius on Wilmington Avenue.
3. A late contender (my fault for not trying them) is the fried string beans at Woody's Dewey Beach Grill. Crispy. Crunchy. With a hint of heat.
4. Another sleeper is the relatively new Theo's Steaks, Sides & Spirits in downtown Rehoboth. Their tempura-fried green beans are wonderful. Order two orders for a crowd. They disappear quickly.
Try them all! Life is short.
