anyone been to kyma in annapolis? Just wanted to see some reviews.

  1. I had dinner there about a month ago. I'm still not sure if I like the whole parallel menu concept (and I haven't been to Baltimore's new entry, Nasu Blanca) but at least these two cuisines have some similarities.

    The space is quite nice. Though my strongest memory (unfortunately) is that the A/C right over our heads was so strong that I felt like ordering coffee and nothing else. Note to restauranteurs: sometimes it's the small things. They moved us without incident though.

    The food was good, but not great. Two of the items we were most excited about from the menu weren't available though. The most memorable, in that it's the only thing I can specifically remember eating, was the ol' tapas bar standby, shrimp with garlic and oil. The remnants of which were great for dipping the crusty bread.

    I was pleasantly surprised with the wine list, which had decent Spanish and Greek offerings among the other usual suspects. It's sad that I should be surprised that a Spanish/Greek restaurant would have interesting wines from those regions, but thus is the current state of my low expectations.

    So the girlfriend and I both left with luke warm feelings overall, but I want to like the place, so I'm going to pretend that we didn't hit them on their best night, and try again.

    Unless you hounds tell me otherwise.
