Le Cavalier
Pronounced “luh-KAH-vuhl-YAY,” Le Cavalier is a progressive, French brasserie in the iconic HOTEL DU PONT in the heart of Wilmington. The restaurant's name, “Le Cavalier” honors the deep equestrian tradition in the Brandywine River Valley and pay homage to the early 20th century when the Hotel opened. Helmed by Chef-Partner Tyler Akin, the restaurant artfully blurs the lines between approachability and elegance. Influenced by the flavors of North Africa and Provençe, the neo-brasserie menu offers thoughtfully sourced French classics, inventive riffs on standbys, craft cocktails, natural wines, and local coffee and tea service.

Guests can enjoy Steak Tartare and Salad Fin d'Été as starters, before trying one of the main entrees, such as the Poulet Frites or the restaurant's signature burger: the Cheeseburger Louis Ballast. Dessert options include a signature ice cream Sundae, Pavlova, and Coconut Cake. Le Cavalier also offers a tasting menu, which includes the Rougette de Veau (a red wine-braised cut of veal shoulder).
