In appreciation of the local food industry's social media masters.

The term “food porn” is passé (almost as passé as the term passé), but the impact of a really good photo of food is as strong as it ever was. And there’s nowhere digital deliciousness has more impact than Instagram.

We searched IG for the best Delaware eatery food photography and found that when it comes to social media marketing, a lot of local restaurants and pubs are not messing around.

Here are 13 of our favorite local restaurant Instagrams — scrolling while hungry is not recommended:

Daily Veg

Daily Veg on Limestone Road in Wilmington has a 100% plant-based menu, including their highly photogenic açaí smoothies.

Greenbox Kitchen

This fast casual eatery from the folks who brought you Wilmington Green Box has its own stunning plant-based menu.

Screamin’ Blues Crabhouse

Rehoboth Beach + crabs = IG gold.

Honey Bee Kitchen and Market

The Trolley Square shop sells fresh organic veggies and other local goodies — and its IG is full of ideas on how to use them.

Limestone BBQ and Bourbon

The photos are straightforward, decisively lacking things like artistic angles and pops of color. It doesn’t matter. The BBQ speaks for itself.

La Fia Bistro

This popular downtown Wilmington eatery makes the most basic rustic dishes look elevated.


One of Wilmington’s most high-class restaurants (our own James Beard finalist) has a high class IG to go with it, complete with magazine-quality pics.

Stitch House Brewery

Stitch House always seems to have something new to offer, and its IG keeps followers on top of it.

De La Coeur Cafe

We told you not to scroll while hungry.

Taverna Rustica

This Newark-based Italian restaurant just opened a new North Wilmington location and are making sure they get noticed on IG.

Drop Squad Kitchen

Drop Squad Kitchen on the Riverfront is another all plant-based eatery that knows how to get decadent.

Viva Bowls

Newark’s superfruit cafe posts lots of attention-grabbing açaí and Pitiya bowls.

Catherine Rooney’s

There are two types of food Instagrams: The ones that tempt you with healthy dishes that are almost too pretty to eat, and the ones that pop up on your feed like a devil on your shoulder whispering “live a little.” Irish pub Rooney’s in Trolley Square falls in the latter category. Spectacularly.
