Helen Williams, owner and head chef of 2 Home Cooks, wants you to feel like family as soon as you enter her eatery. Housed in Dover’s Cocheco Park, the restaurant features a large wraparound bar that surrounds an open kitchen, giving customers a front-row view of the action, plus the ability to interact with the person making their meal. “We want to get to know the guests and be a little more personal,” Williams says. “Instead of walking into a restaurant, you’re walking into our home.”
