This post is a rant with no real added value. If you aren't prepared to be entertained by a grumpy foodie than please move along.

I went home to Arlington a few weeks ago (yes I know it is close) and was astounded at the options available. I could hardly make a choice for lunch in light of the options.Yelp and Zagat ratings where very high. I had a great lunch at a little Afghan kabob place.

Today I am finishing up a bunch of work on the boat in Annapolis and I am having a heck of a time--with little food on the boat at the moment--finding a decent place for a quiet, pleasant lunch. I think I'm going to end up at Subway.

*grump*

Rant over. You may now return to your previously scheduled programming.

Four years ago, we moved from northern Virginia to the Annapolis area. Besides some friends, the variety of restaurants is the only thing we really miss.

If you're just going to get a sandwich, you could try Jimmy Johns on Main Street. It's a chain, but it's closer to the water than Subway and a bit more interesting. The sub we had there a couple months ago was pretty decent. I didn't post about it here, because, well, it's a chain. But so is Subway.

If I was downtown for lunch, I'd probably get sushi.

Joss has really go down in quality. Last time few times there it was not good at all. A shame really, it was one of the only decent places to eat in Naptown

Though Sue's Deli is in Edgewater and a trip from Annapolis, I just wanted to give the joint another recommendation.

I can vouch for the BLTs, Egg salad w/alvacado and scrapple egg and cheese sandwiches.

It's been a while since I gave the place a thumbs up. We usually take out and bring to the boat for lunch.

Doesn't miss.

There are more unusual menu items for the adventurous, but avacado in my egg salad is far enough afeild for me!!

We went to Joss for the first time last year, and were not so impressed. It was fine, but not great. Maybe it was already sliding a bit. If we get sushi downtown, we tend to go to Nano.

That said, the best sushi we've had in the area is in Edgewater, believe it or not, at Nova Sushi Bar. Although the restaurant is new, the head sushi chef (and one of the owners), Paul Lee, is not new to the area. He was previously at another local sushi restaurant, and we've enjoyed his sushi for a few years now. He has many fans in the area.

Simply put, the sushi is always very fresh, high quality, and Paul is friendly and enjoys showing off the best of what he has available, and getting you to try something new.

We prefer Nova over both Joss and Nano. So if you're ever in Edgewater, it's near the West Marine (like a couple doors down) on Solomons Island Road.

If anybody treks through Clarksville, MD (32 and 108) en route to their boat, watch out for a restaurant on 108 called Great Sage. It's vegetarian. Who thinks of these things??? I didn't realize it until it was too late. I should have noticed that most of the menu was in quotes (e.g. Southwestern "chicken" wrap, "turkey" and "bacon" club). Beware, sailors. Beware...

USA Today had an article about Best of the Bay for Crabs..it noted Suicide Bridge followed by The Narrows. Any one tell me more about The Suicide Bridge restaurant..'cause we can't get our mast under the Rt 50 bridge to experience their cuizine..will probably do it by land yacht.

Good for you Shawn. Seems for a lot of kids food groups are Cheerios, chicken nuggets, and french fries.
