For more than 25 years, French-born chef Jean-Louis Evennou has filled Café Normandie with Gallic cuisine peppered with flavors from the Eastern seaboard. A chef since the age of 13, Evennou seasons endive salad with strong roquefort cheese and rabbit with tangy dijon sauce and simmers beef bourguignon in another rich sauce. Dinners also include American-inspired recipes such as crab soup with Maryland vegetables, as well as housemade pastries and crème caramel.
In 2008, Café Normandie was certified as a sustainable steward by the city of Annapolis for its eco-friendly initiatives. The restaurant follows intensive composting and recycling guidelines; in addition, it stocks biodegradable carry-out gear and serves its meals on tabletops made of marble salvaged from the ruins of the Louvre.
Much like artfully arranged crepe paper, edible crêpes add elegant taste to the thoughtful gifts they conceal. The family-owned-and-operated Mt. Washington crêperie serves up fresh French fare for lunch and dinner daily and brunch on the weekends. The backbone of the bistro's menu is the crêpes, and the lunch and brunch menus offer a variety of hot sandwiches to accompany the sweet and savory concoctions. Nosh on a midday smoked salmon panini ($9) with tomatoes and pesto sauce or a croque niçois ($8), a toasted ham and swiss sandwich with tomatoes and anchovies. The eatery's savory crêpes promise to satisfy even the most discerning connoisseur of the thin pancake delights with dishes such as crêpe Lorraine ($11) with fresh asparagus, brie, and prosciutto, or the seaward crêpe Normande ($16) stuffed with sautéed calamari and shrimp, veggies, garlic, and goat cheese. For a dinner delicacy, try an order of escargots ($9.99) cooked in a butter and white-wine sauce before moving on to the Carrée D'agneau grille ($25.99), grilled lamb chops served over a red-wine sauce with sautéed spinach and the starch of the day, or tilapia florentine ($18.99) with basmati rice, sautéed spinach, goat cheese, and capers in a vin blanc sauce.
This cozy gem of an eatery only serves crepes made from fresh and natural ingredients. Recipes are homemade whenever possible, except when the home is on vacation and human hands need to pick up the shack's slack. The quaint interior brings crepe lovers close together as if they were the savorous ingredients and the restaurant itself was the ethereal wrap. When the weather permits, break out of the shell to enjoy a spacious outdoor area.
At Surf Bagel, the storefront's brothers and surfing aficionados Dave and Tom Vitella boil, season, and bake their award-winning bagels daily in a beach-themed shop. The varieties of dough-circles range from classic salt, onion, and cinnamon raisin to egg, whole-wheat everything, and seasonal flavors. Let bagels ride atop a sweet wave of strawberry and raisin-apple-cinnamon cream cheese, or send savory wheat wheels on a slip-and-slide through garlic-and-herb cream cheese. The bagel boutique also brews Green Mountain coffee, blends fruit smoothies, teaches how to grow cheeses to harvest their steaks, and serves a variety of other goodies. Surf Bagel hosts surf camps and other fundraisers.
