Lito's Turf and Surf
Don Hoy's experience in the restaurant industry began at the early age of 13, when he took a job as a busboy at Dan Dowd's Steak House. With an unwavering determination to succeed and a perfectly shaped head for a chef hat, he quickly ascended the steak house's culinary ranks, later earning the title of head chef in the early '80s. In 1992, Don and his wife Joan pursued the dream of owning a restaurant by purchasing Landlubbers Raw Bar and Grill, which would later become Lito's Turf and Surf. The husband and wife team do not work alone, however, enlisting their three sons to help cook, work the line, and carve new recipes into the family tree.
Lito's Turf and Surf brings together some of the tastiest offerings of both land and sea in a menu anchored by Maryland crab cakes, grilled lobster tail, brawny Angus burgers, and succulent prime rib. From the restaurant's tan leather booths, diners can direct their gaze toward flat-screen TVs showing national and college sports and toast glasses of craft brews and wine every time football players perform bone-crushing tackles or synchronized flash-mob routines in the end zone.
