Doug Ruley

SoDel Concepts, Rehoboth Beach, DE

Nothing captures the relaxed, scenic, and delicious Rehoboth Beach coastline quite like SoDel’s empire of restaurants, founded by the late Matt Haley, the Beard Foundation’s 2014 Humanitarian of the Year. Chef Doug Ruley and the SoDel team return to the Beard House for a sustainable wintertime feast featuring their signature “farmer meets fisherman” cooking.
