In Search of Wonderful Annapolis Restaurants

  • k

My husband and I are living in Annapolis for a few months, here from Cal., and want to try as many interesting restaurants as possible. Have already been to:

Lewnes'and Aqua Terra (exceptional dining experiences)
Cafe Normandie and Carroll's Creek (both very good)
Harry Brown's (*horrible* service, great soup, food ok)
Sam's Waterfront Cafe and Northwoods (mediocre)

From reading other posts, sounds like we need to try Riordan's and O'Leary's. Other suggestions??

Thank you,

  1. Have you heard of Sputnik Cafe in Crownsville on General's Highway? It's a little out of the way, but I will guarantee you it's worth it. Sputnik is an Asian-influenced fusion with dishes like buckwheat noodles and shrimp tossed with sesame seeds, scallions, and peanut sauce; (superb); korean bulgolgi steak served with sauteed bok choy(also superb); roasted duck tacos with northern white beans and gorgonzola (really good); etc.

    Their salads are just as inventive and quite excellent and they have a "sushi of the evening" as well.

    Highly recommend it. From what I understand, there's nothing quite like it in Annapolis.
