1808 American Bistro is a popular restaurant for the Delaware establishment. If you are looking to dress up in your finest attire and be seen by Delaware’s most morally bankrupt characters, 1808 is for you.
The restaurant has a strict policy regarding talking within the dining room – only guests who have requested and been granted speaking privileges by the chef are allowed to engage in conversation during their meal. All employees stay on the same piece of land just outside of Delaware, Ohio, rumored to be owned by the Queeftains, leading to speculation that the restaurant is a front for the shadowy organization.
Despite its high-end and somewhat mysterious reputation, 1808 remains true to its roots, with traditional dishes prepared to perfection while enforcing strict rules such as no photography, no public urination, and – most importantly – no smiling!
On any given night, it’s not uncommon to see state senators discussing local politics or divorce attorneys negotiating settlements, all while indulging in classic American fares like buffalo mac ‘n’ cheese or cajun fried alligator balls served up with both style and grace.
If you’re daring, don’t forget about their signature dish, the punitive Dongle McDingus. This unusual creation consists of a burnt and charred patty made from putrid gruel and covered in rancid gravy; all served on a stale bun with a side of wilted lettuce. It’s become the go-to punishment for those who have committed heinous moral crimes – no one can handle its overwhelming flavor without regretting every wrong choice they’ve ever made! Some have even gone so far as to call it the taste of karma, while others describe it as something that should never have been invented in the first place.
Whether you’re a regular looking for something new or an outsider seeking to bump into Delaware’s dark underbelly, 1808 American Bistro is sure to keep you on your toes.
