I've come to the conclusion that the raw materials you can get at Costco or Sam's is better than most of what Sysco drops off. I really LIKE going out and being catered to from time to time but the places that are not frustrating have become few and far between. Grump.

That said, I make a pretty decent burger on Auspicious. Give me a shout sometime Chef. I'd value your feedback on my product. *grin*

sail fast and eat well, dave

Wow! Do I ever agree!

I always adjust my expectations to the "reality of the situation"... you know, Cape Charles is not Manhattan, etc, etc., but what you encountered borders on fraud!

Also, there is an "Italian" restaurant in Solomons that was touted as, "Best Italian south of Philadelphia", uggh! If you crave over boiled Chef Boyardee, maybe!

By the Way, "The Inn at Little Washington" holy f'n moly! Didn't James Beard (NY Times Food Critic) call the "Inn" the best restaurant in America, or something pretty equally flattering? We have had our MasterCard pummeled hard there a time or two, and it was worth it! Your pedigree is showing, chef!

Chef, we were just in Solomons last week and passed by that place a number of times. We weren't too thrilled with the looks of things and chose not to go in. After reading your post I'm glad we didn't. We did however eat dinner at the CD Cafe and it was excellent. Not sure if you've tried it do so next down as I think you'll enjoy it.
Mike

Note there were some corrections in this months CBM. Best breakfast places were reported as best crabcake places and best crabcake places were not listed at all.

So the list of best breakfast places is listed above under best crabcakes and best crabcakes per 2010 CBM Best of the Bay are below.

Cantlers Annapolis MD
Stoneys Solomons and Broomes MD
Watermans Rock Hall MD
The Crab Claw St Michaels MD
Smithfield Station Smithfiled VA
Surf Rider Hampton VA
Signals/Skipjack Cove Georgetown MD
The Narrows Kent Narrows
Kentmorr Restaraunt Kent Island MD
Skipper Pier, Deale MD

And for my part I'd like to downgrade my evaluation of Cucomo's in Deltaville to mediocre down from good. The last time I was there the service was poor and the food not as good as in the past.

eeeyikes!

but thanks mid. I'll revise the list next time I go after it. I wonder if the Chesapeake SailNet Culinary Review even cares about the magazine's recommendations anyway?

It seemed much more interesting to read the SailNetters reviews than CBM's (commercially influenced?) opinions anyway.

I read an article recently about a Culinary School on the West Coast being sued for fraud based on salary figures they listed in their brochures

Also, there is an "Italian" restaurant in Solomons that was touted as, "Best Italian south of Philadelphia", uggh! If you crave over boiled Chef Boyardee, maybe! Unfortunately, I think I know who the chef is...sad to hear.

By the Way, "The Inn at Little Washington" holy f'n moly! Didn't James Beard (NY Times Food Critic) call the "Inn" the best restaurant in America, or something pretty equally flattering? We have had our MasterCard pummeled hard there a time or two, and it was worth it! Your pedigree is showing, chef! Thank you Wayne, I am proud of my experiences working there and being a integral part of "The Inns" history. It was a very memorable part of my professional life. I'm extremely pleased to hear you enjoyed dining there...IMO its still one the best places for the ultimate dining experience in the US, maybe the world? Chef O'Connell is one amazing individual whom I have the utmost respect for!
