The Counting House Restaurant and Pub cut the ribbon Feb. 13 on The Circle in Georgetown.
While The Counting House took over the restaurant from the Brick Hotel, the Lester family is still operating the hotel. The restaurant was remodeled and the kitchen has been fitted out with new equipment.
Owners Miguel Batiz and Bill Clifton also moved the restaurant entrance to a door on Market Street, but the bar is still entered by the front door on The Circle. Chef Bill Clifton is sourcing all of his food from Sussex County whenever possible, creating classic comfort food with a modern twist.
