  1. Ate at the Salt Line Monday night for a business dinner, party of 5. Many empty tables both inside and outside. Service was very good. Seafood tower was very good. Many types of oysters, all well shucked. Nice Briny clams and a few spreads and dips lead to a well rounded appetizer. My poached See Bass entrée was 4-5 bites with very little else on the plate. The food was good but I came hungry and left hungry. The food tasted great on someone elses dime. I would come back but probably just to enjoy appetizers and wine at an outdoor table with fire lamp.
  2. Talbot 208 is highly recommended in St Michaels. St. Michaels is a boating town and weekend destination for sailors like me, as it is a day sail from Annapolis. If we go this weekend there is good chance we will dine at Talbot 208.
  3. Enjoyed a great dinner at the Penn Quarter branch this past Saturday night. There we 10 of us and my nephew ordered enough dishes to put us into submission. Half the table were picky eaters and they were happy with a cheese plate, eggplant, anchovies and tomatoes. My side of the table had that as well shrimp, Octopus, Jamon and meatballs. And we all had plenty of Potatoes Bravas. Solid meal and worth the drive in from Annapolis.
  4. A few summers back we saw Christo's Masuba in London. 7500+ painted and stacked barrels. It was very interesting and impressive.
  5. Google reminded me that 11 years ago my wife and I hike the Grand Canyon. Yes we hiked all the way down 1 day, stayed overnight in a tent and hiked back up the next day. Temp at the bottom was over 125 and we woke up at 4am so we could start our hike at 5 with headlamps and avoid the heat. We went with Wildland Trekking a firm we have used several times and highly recommend. They provided a guide, equipment and handled permits and logistics. The guide even cooked both a great dinner and breakfast the next day. Highly recommend this trip. Saw many layers of the canyon and each layer was breathtaking. Hiking down was actually harder then coming up the next day.
  6. I have a generic square basket which can hold 2 whole fish. Get the fish cleaned, head and fins off. Season, stuff with herbs and aromatics and grill for about 8-10 minutes each side. Works great.
  7. a side dish of Spinach, Pine Nuts, and Grapes-We had that on Tuesday. It was a great dish I remember Harvey's. They advertised their drinks as free bar pour. I had no idea but my Vodka Tonic was delivered as a tall glass of Vodka and a bottle on tonix water.
  8. We celebrated our 36th Anniversary at Tio Pepe Tuesday night. Many of my wife's Baltimore friends had raved about it. Very old school, surprised they are still in business given the location was not inner harbor. The food was excellent. We both had seafood dishes which were really good and large. We both cleaned our plates. Their wine list was fairly priced as we had a reserva Rioja 2014 Marquis de Riscal for 42 dollars. I would go back. And I do need to get up to Baltimore more as it was only about 40 minutes from Annapolis.
  9. Dinner at the bar Saturday Night. Reservations for spontaneous dining are scarce in the Annapolis summer as tourists abound. The bar rarely disappoints and we were able to watch the show as they crafted some great cocktails. Wife had he usual Vodka Gimlet with lime foam and I have a spicy Tequila cocktail. We shared many plates-all great. Swordfish skewers, duck risotto and Brussel Sprouts were all very good. 2 cocktails, 5 shares plates-110 Tax and tip.. No complaints and we were full and happy.
  10. We sailed to Cambridge and stayed over July 4th. The town was dead. RaR Brewing was not hopping though the beers were tasty.
  11. We have been to the Annapolis location. Food is solid and reasonably healthy. Each time there we left feeling full but not stuffed or regretting what we ate. A god place to meet up with friends as they offer a good range of dishes.
  12. We had a great time visiting Boston last weekend. Trillium and Night Shift are outstanding breweries and Cambridge Brewing solid. We walked the freedom trail so cannoli's at Mike's in the North End were great, the line not so great. Boston has a really good young vibe, very happy that my son has joined a start-up engineering firm on the MIT campus. Night Shift was voted best pizza in Boston and their Detroit style pizza was really good. I like Hazy New England IPAs so all the beers were great.
