Tsunami’s dim lighting is an abstract burlesque, enrobing tables in an air of mystery while exposing the beauty that lies on the plates. In the darkness, diners can focus on the flavors placed before them, considering each hint of sweet and savory. At the bar, mixologists teach exotic spirits how to mingle gracefully, blending tequila and botanical liqueurs to form cocktails such as the Green Regal and Humpaloma. From here, genial servers whisk more than two dozen varieties of craft beer to thirsty patrons pondering menus filled with Asian-inspired fusion fare and more than 50 types of sushi conceived by executive chef Bobby Massa. A lineup of maki sports geographical influences, from the sriracha and avocadoes of the Miami roll to the smoked salmon, cream cheese, and taxi honks of the New Yorker roll. Filled with gourmet creations such as ahi tuna wonton tacos and wok-seared sea scallops with lemongrass-guava coulis, the restaurant’s hot fare highlights Chef Massa’s whimsy, inventiveness, and extensive culinary training.
Having earned Metropolitan Kitchen & Lounge the headline of Best New Restaurant in Annapolis in The Travel Bite in 2011, chef David Thomas beckons diners to taste his blend of American fusion fare steeped in a farm-to-table philosophy. Sidestepping culinary school, Thomas honed his craft in kitchens throughout New York City and the mid-Atlantic, developing his passion for French cooking techniques and fresh, organic ingredients. Gourmands feast upon Thomas' creations—made with mostly local products including grass-fed beef and marine-certified seafood—within a three-level dining space that opens to a sidewalk patio refreshingly free of dive-bombing parakeets. Barkeeps pour a selection of craft beers and wines, mix specialty cocktails, and serve a selection of liquors, including short-run spirits. On select dates, live entertainment ranging from local musicians to sock-puppet renditions of Shakespeare regales diners.
Even though the head chef of Kahve Cafe and Catering revealed his bagel recipe in a profile for [Chesapeake Taste](http://gr.pn/10vq7x3, he still managed to keep a few secrets of the scratch-made trade to himself. And that’s because just about everything on the menu is crafted from scratch daily, from the club sandwiches served on house-baked french bread to the fresh-baked muffins and scones that please morning risers mouths and olfactory systems on the often. In keeping with the owner's ties to the community, the cafe’s tea and coffee drinks are also sourced from a local roaster.
And while much of the menu offers comfort, so does the cafe itself. Couches, easy chairs, and tables line the space, making visits even cozier during regularly scheduled live music and open-mic performances. Also, once a month, young ones can get in on the fun as Bridgette and the Band plays tunes designed to please their little ears and distract them from the sounds of nearby ice cream trucks.
When Lois Margolet first opened Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop in Wilmington, Delaware, 36 years ago, she and her brother Alan worked from the second story of a boarded-up building, roasting 10–12 whole turkeys every night and churning out a “real turkey lover’s” sandwich each day. Today, Capriotti’s has expanded across 12 states, each location stacking the same award-winning hot and cold sandwiches, racking up such accolades as The Best of Las Vegas 2012 and Best of Delaware 2012 prizes from the Las Vegas Review-Journal and Delaware Today, respectively. Though the shop is still known for its slow-roasted-turkey creations—such as the Thanksgiving-inspired Bobbie, named America's best sandwich by AOL's Lemondrop.com, piled with cranberry sauce and stuffing—its menu now ventures into the realm of roast beef, italian deli meats with such sandwiches as the capastrami, cheesesteaks, and vegetarian treats, such as meatless chicken and turkey.
