Contemporary American
The House of William and Merry serves contemporary American cuisine prepared from the freshest seasonal ingredients procured from local farms, providing casual fine dining at a reasonable price. Chef-owned by the husband and wife team, Merry Catanuto and William Hoffman, who live on the property, the restaurant is a remodeled farmhouse on the edge of central Hockessin. Dine in a comfortable home atmosphere in one of the two dining rooms, the porch, or the bar. When you arrive, you can see right into the all new, modern kitchen. Full bar service is available including wines by the glass, microbrews on tap, and specialty drinks. Or, take a walk around back to see the herb and vegetable gardens.

Tuesday through Saturday we serve lunch and dinner. On Sunday, we serve brunch followed by a prix fix supper in the evening.

    Enjoyed a wonderful dinner that was as beautiful to look at as it was creative. Bold use of seasoning brought out the best in each dish. Thank you to our server Madeline who was attentive and engaging. One of our favorite restaurants in the Wilmington area.

    We moved to DE approximately a year ago and this was without question the best meal we’ve had here. Every single course and bite was superb. We can’t wait to go back.
