Lisa DiFebo

Chef and restaurateur Lisa DiFebo was born in Wilmington, Delaware, where her father owned a restaurant. Watching him make the red sauce and experiencing the sights, smells, and sounds of the kitchen greatly influenced her from an early age. Lisa moved to the Bethany/Rehoboth area in 1987, and after working in local restaurants, was inspired to open a place of her own. She bought an old beach house in Bethany and turned it into a small deli, serving the best breakfast in town along with sandwiches and favorites from her family’s traditional Italian repertoire. DiFebo’s Café & Deli became an immediate success. After attending the Culinary Institute of America in New York, where she became the first female invited to do a fellowship at the award-winning American Bounty restaurant on campus at the Culinary Institute, Lisa and her husband Jeff Osias returned to the Delaware beaches, where they now own three DiFebo’s locations.
