Charcoal Grill’s titular grill crisps the outside edge of beef slowly in order for flavors to soak into the meat. At its peak crispness, certified Angus beef moves from grill to mouth in thin slices held between kaiser rolls or rye bread. Charcoal Grill's other meaty options include slow-cooked pulled chicken, barbecued pork, and chicken wings that come in 13 flavors. Wings fill orders big and small, from individual portions to batches of up to 200, sating even the hungriest of competitive-eater houseguests.
Captain Tony Vicari hauled his first catch out of the Chesapeake Bay at the age of 13 with his father. The two still work together capturing crabs. They personally catch each one served at Waterman's Pride Seafood, where the cooks steam the creatures to order on the same day they were nabbed from the sea. In addition to serving buckets of crabs and crab legs, the marine eatery serves platters of flounder fillets, housemade jumbo lump crab cakes, and stuffed or butterfly shrimp. A raw bar features mussels, oysters, and clams to accommodate their fear of fire.
When laid out item by item, Lucky Inn's lunch and dinner menus could possibly span the entire length of the Great Wall of China. The lengthy lists keep the eatery’s chefs busy crafting favorites such as general tso’s chicken, beef with broccoli, and shrimp in garlic sauce, as well as noodle dishes of the lo mein, chow mein, and chow fun varieties. Meat-free fare arrives in the form of orange-flavored tofu and sautéed snow peas, harvested by ski instructors during slow days.
There is more to chef Mohammad Rahman’s menu than the staples that diners have come to expect from an Indian restaurant, although crowd favorites do have reserved places. Rahman and his wife, Salma Khanam—who is the restaurant’s maitre d’—incorporate flavors from their homeland of Bangladesh, including fish fry combos and shak bhaji (made with custom-spiced spinach). Halal meats such as fish, lamb, goat, and chicken star in rich curry dishes, nicely accompanied by warm naan fresh from the tandoor oven. The eatery's lunch buffet pits stomachs against a bounty of dishes, piled high with delectables to reward diners who wore their nicest stilettos. Kitchen of India’s environment is warm and romantic, with white tablecloths serving as elegant yet neutral complements to colorful paintings and carved sculptures.
