"We make it a point to return to Rue 57 each time we visit NYC. Great ambience, excellent service and wonderful food. The miso glazed sea bass was awesome. We returned a couple of days later for Sunday brunch. Equally enjoyable."

"Took an out of town client for a dinner meeting. The noise level was a bit challenging for discussing business, but the food and service provided more than adequate compensation. Simple meals for both-the filet and Three Forks salad-both a delight for both of us. The service was excellent, attentive but not overbearing. Bottom line, an excellent choice for my out of town guest."

"We make a stop at Carrols Creek Cafe each year during our visit to the Annapolis Boat Show. We generally invite new guests based on our prior experience. This years visit did not disappoint. Our guest worked through Ahi tartar, spinach salad, and lobster tails, while we worked our way through muscles and crab cakes. Our server was outstanding, the service was attentive but not overbearing, and the food was excellent. We highly recommend this experience to anyone hitting the Annapolis area."

When in Baltimore enjoy the city's freshest seafood along with Inner Harbor's best view. The Rusty Scupper offers a tempting array of local seafood specialties from Maryland Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes to pan-seared Rockfish with Lobster. You can also enjoy classic dishes such as Beef Tenderloin & Grilled Atlantic Salmon, all served in a spectacular waterfront setting.

"We make this visit an annual ritual in conjunction to our visit to the Annapolis Boat Show-once again worth the drive. The restaurant again honored our request for "our" small corner table overlooking the inner harbor. Our waiter was excellent-attentive but not overbearing. The crab cakes were outstanding, but accompanying lobster tails on the evening "surf and surf" special was a bit tough. Not sure if it was the lobster or the prep, but not up to the Scupper's normal product. Dinner was topped off with the multi-layer cake with Godiva chock let icing and a Bailey's-a fine closing to the meal."

Bobby Van’s Grill marks the return of the powerful New York City chop shop to the downtown D.C. area but with a new twist. This eclectic New American Steakhouse now boasts a slightly more casual family friendly atmosphere as well as catering to the Washington politician. This 536-seat D.C. destination is fully loaded! There’s four private, intimate and upscale dining rooms with their own bar and bar services. Two 40-foot long bars can be found with friendly bartenders serving strong drinks and even stronger conversations. The main dining room boasts views of both New York Avenue and the plush marble atrium of the adjoining building amidst its beautiful water fountain. This is an ideal place to meet for power lunches, family gatherings and late night dinners in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

"I met a friend and former client for a late evening dinner. The entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful, but not overbearing. The filet was outstanding and prepare just as requested. Could not picked a better spot for a business meeting."
