When you’re staying in a home away from home like LuxiaSuites, a truly satisfying meal can be the thing that brings you an extra level of comfort. Not to mention, if you’re wining and dining clients, you more than likely want to treat them to a worthwhile dinner that reinforces the notion that you have their best interests in mind, both in and out of the office. So, when you’re looking for the best dining options near apartments in Wilmington’s Legal District, we have you covered. Here, a few of our favorites that are sure to please every time.


This is the place to go if you’re looking for some of the best sushi and sashimi in town. You’ll find all the classics — California, Philly, and spicy tuna — as well as some less-than-normal rolls, like the sloppy joe (with fried eel, not ground beef) and the signature Mikimoto, with tempura shrimp and avocado. But don’t worry: If sushi isn’t your thing, there’s a hot menu with myriad Asian and Asian-fusion dishes, like the crispy stir-fried tofu, and Mongolian BBQ lamb chops.

Big Fish Grill on the Riverfront

Nestled right against the Christina River, this is the place to visit for a fresh seafood dinner with a waterfront view. This unassuming restaurant turns out stellar dishes that leave a lasting impression. You’d be remiss to pass on an opportunity to feast on sweet, succulent Maine lobster; it arrives at the restaurant fresh each day. Or, get a taste of the South with a plate of their seafood jambalaya, packed with chicken, shrimp, crawfish, and andouille.

Agile Indian Grill

Authenticity is the name of the game at Agile. It was born from the owner’s desire to bring classic, traditional Indian cuisine to a town where it was severely lacking. Start your meal off with a crispy, potato-stuffed samosa or a plate of flaky, vegetable puffs. Then, with plenty of warm naan bread on hand, dig into a dish of butter chicken or, if you like a little spice, the chicken curry.

La Fia

Looking for a bistro that serves up the same food you may find while strolling the streets of Paris? This is where you’ll find exactly that. Inside the cozy restaurant are just a handful of tables, creating an intimate vibe, and a fully-stocked bar adorned with kitschy paintings of food and livestock. Begin with a pair of crispy crab cakes dipped in red pepper aioli. For a truly French experience, try the beef tartare or, if the idea of eating raw beef leaves you a little uneasy, you can still fancy yourself on a Parisian retreat with the foie gras agnolotti.

Whether dining alone, with friends, or important clients, you’re never without myriad dining options near apartments in Wilmington’s Legal District. The hardest part is deciding which one to try first.
