The new Lewes Oyster House is open! DelawareToday’s ‘Best of Delaware’ award-winning chef Sean Corea, hospitality Swiss Army knife Tom Little and business partner Tim Bartley have joined forces to open their brand new eatery in the iconic Walsh Building on Second Street in Lewes – the location of the original Rose & Crown and Jerry's Seafood.
The seasoned veterans have known each other since working together at Fork & Flask and became best friends. They are excited to be part of an impressive creative team that is developing a signature dining concept for The Walsh Building and the Lewes community. You'll love the huge raw bar on display in the front window of the restaurant. Oyster lovers will go crazy over this one.

I was honored to be included in a media party last weekend, and they dished up some tasty bites. Scroll through the gallery and see what they'll be serving! And wait 'til you see the menu! Some of the highlights include a delicious “Damn Good Burger” with Wagyu beef, bacon and cheese on an onion roll. The pickles are amazing, by the way. Stars of the show include the Low Tide Oysters (see the gallery) smothered in warm butter and a 3-cheese blend. We also loved the Oyssters Rockefeller – a modern take on that traditional dish. And don't miss the ricotta toast with hot honey, sunflower pesto and sea salt. There's a lot more, and I don't want to ruin the surprise. Familiar faces abound there on 2nd St. in Lewes, including former Fork & Flask sous Chef Dillon Walker, bartender extraordinaire Sean Norris, and of course Tommy Little and Exec Chef Sean Corea.
