It’s official: The planned downtown Wilmington food hall that’s been the buzz of the local foodie community will be called DE.CO (short for Delaware Collective) and will feature eight chef-driven kitchens in the 12,000-square-foot space on the ground floor of the historic DuPont Building. The $3.5 million collaboration between the Buccini/Pollin Group and Seawall Development is slated to open later this year.
“We hope that visitors and locals alike will think of DE.CO as a ‘third space’ — not their home; not their office; but a fun place to dine, drink and mingle comfortably,” said Buccini/Pollin’s Chris Buccini. “The communal feel of hosting eight different chefs will extend to all aspects of DE.CO, making it a gathering place for all in the heart of downtown Wilmington and extending the city’s ongoing renaissance with a bright new anchor in a beautiful, historic building.”
In addition to the food hall, the rejuvenated ground floor will include retail shops and artisan boutiques.
Want in on this? DE.CO is currently accepting applications from creative chefs, with or without an existing storefront. If you’re interested, contact Peter DiPrinzio at firstname.lastname@example.org.-30-
