The moment you enter Pochi Wine Bar in downtown Wilmington, you feel as if you have been immediately transported to the other side of the equator.   The lime green and brown walls are adorned with furry fabrics, and art from another place and time.   Citrusy scents float through the air, and the fresh seafood sizzling on the grill will make your mouth water.


With some South American specialties that are not too common in Delaware, Pochi Wine Bar is the perfect place for adventurous diners seeking new dishes and flavors, or anybody who wants to be completely satisfied with their meal.  Free WiFi makes it a perfect place for business meetings, and the bar top is a great place to unwind with a pisco sour after a long day.

Start your meal with some shrimp empanadas or Chorillana, which is a fragrant blend of sauteed french fries, onions, seasoned beef, and eggs.  Wash it down with a glass of Carmenere, straight from the valleys of Central Chile, before ordering some Chilean sea bass grilled in a blackberry reduction sauce.   The vegetarian fare is original and delicious, and the meats are juicy and tender.  Finish your meal with some dulce de leche crepes, and savor the sweet foreign flavors.


Weekend evenings usually feature live music, and the knowledgeable staff is always genuinely happy to serve you.  The bartenders are experienced and will gladly mix you a delicious cocktail from half a world away.  As you get ready to leave, prepare yourself for the trip back to Wilmington, back to this side of the equator.  Located less than two blocks from the Residences at Rodney Square, Pochi Wine Bar will surely have you yearning for more!
