On Jan. 17 we had dinner at Grain Craft Bar+Kitchen in downtown Kennett, our first visit there since it was the Half Moon. The place is much brighter inside, with open bulbs on long, looped-up cords, and the booths have been replaced by high tables.
I had a salmon fillet with a pesto topping, roasted cauliflower and fries, and my date-night companion had the buttermilk fried chicken cooked with an interesting "jerk" seasoning. Both meals were tasty and substantial.
Our waiter was a pleasant, low-key young man who didn't mind in the least that we sat and chatted long after we'd finished dinner, reluctant to head back out into the cold.
