Sea life exists in a rainbow of delectable flavors and textures, as opposed to the sea itself, which tastes like fish tears. Savor the colors of the ocean with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of fine dining and drinks at Hell Point Seafood in Annapolis. The newest restaurant to spring from the James Beard Award–winning culinary mind of chef Bob Kinkead, Hell Point Seafood shares a seasonal menu of delicate and subtle aquatic recipes with discerning diners, while eyeballs can glory in a scenic view of the boats and mermaid parades on Spa Creek. Rouse dormant taste buds with a fresh trio of seafood cocktails consisting of a margarita oyster, tuna tartar with guacamole, and a tomatillo shrimp cocktail ($9). Once your mouth has been bolstered for gale-force flavors, dive into entrees such as a bacon-wrapped swordfish with green lentils and roasted cauliflower ($25) or a Portuguese seafood stew, which combines an aquarium's worth of delectable water-dwellers with a touch of chorizo in a warm tomato-saffron broth ($23). For dessert a glass of port and a spiced pumpkin roll adorned with cream-cheese icing, candied walnuts, and vanilla bourbon anglaise will finish the feast on a sweet note ($7), rather than with a clichéd car chase.
Hell Point Seafood was reviewed in Chesapeake Life magazine. Yelpers give it a 3.5-star average, and TripAdvisors give it 3.5 owl eyes. Seventy-three percent of Urbanspooners recommend the restaurant:
- the last of the season’s softcrabs, crusted in masa, were as sweet and as good as they should be, and the dish’s accompaniments—a brightly flavored corn puree and a gorgeously light scallion spoon bread—made me want to reach across the table and eat from my companion’s plate. – Mary K.
