Gastropub is a British term for a pub which specializes in food a step above the tradition pub grub. The name is derived from combining the terms gastronomy and pub.

Gastropubs have an atmosphere which is relaxed and a focus on offering expertly prepared cuisine. Staying true to that requires a menu that complements the assortment of beers and wines the gastropub offers.

Virgil Wade

Born & raised in the suburbs of D.C., Virgil Wade studied at Maryland University. While trying to decide what to do when he grew up, Virgil took a job managing a French bistro. He soon moved to NYC and continued to work in restaurants…and did what all New Yorkers do…audition. His winning smile and reasonable acting skills landed him a few gigs, but ultimately hospitality took over as he managed multiple restaurants in The Big Apple. When he was ready to slow life down, he and his wife moved to his dad’s hometown, Wilmington, where he had warm childhood memories of fishing and boating. He’s happy to be near the water & pursue his passions: Family, fitness, and food.
