The moment you step inside, you will be greeted by the impeccable decor and the savory aromas floating out of the kitchen.  Start off with a glass of wine from their extensive list, or a classic cocktail from the bar.  If you don’t feel like experiencing the Chef’s Tasting Menu, begin with the Italian Cheese board or the award-winning antipasti.

Oyster fans can rejoice as the ever-changing menu always has a few variations, the pineapple-tequila ones are our favorite option.   The restaurant claims to be famous for their wild salmon dishes, but the grilled rack of lamb has to be the most flavorful and satisfying dish in Wilmington.  For dessert, try the drunken smores, or the banana creme torte.

Everything on the menu is absolutely delicious and sourced from local farms.  The chefs use the freshest ingredients available to them and the menu changes with the seasons.   Moro is a quick 1.4 mile stroll from the Residences at Rodney Square if you feel like walking off some calories, and it is just over two miles from Justison Landing and Christina Landing.  Next time you want to celebrate with friends or impress your date, be sure to check out Moro!
