  • Eggspectation (new)
    When the first Eggspectation eatery opened in Montreal in 1993, the concept was simple: upscale brunch with a focus on decadent egg and crepe dishes. The founding concept has been tweaked only slightly since then, with a menu that today includes more than 160 breakfast, lunch, and dinner items. Breakfast remains the menu’s biggest draw, with a dozen egg benedicts and savory crepes, 16 omelets and fruity pancakes, plus french toast and waffles. At lunch and dinner, chefs stack plates with fine-dining-style entrees, such as half-pound USDA-choice beef burgers and steak and seafood entrees, such as maple-glazed rib eye or lump crab cakes. Whether at a location in Canada, the US, or India, patrons can slide behind a table amid rustic stone and brick walls flanked by jubilant circus-theme decor, such as colorful murals and paparazzi snapshots of Humpty Dumpty.

  • Heavenly Ham
    Inside the savory-scented digs of Honey Baked Ham & Cafe, spools of hardwood-smoked, spiral-sliced ham entice carnivorous palates. Here, chefs uphold the same traditions that Harry J. Hoenselaar created more than 40 years ago. Back then, he chose individual hams, cured them in his secret marinade, and smoked them over hardwood chips before offsetting the earthy flavor with a crisp, sweet glaze. To this day, the staff still makes the signature bone-in hams one at a time and glazes them in the shop. The hammery's kitchens also whip up classic side dishes and desserts, such as the sweet-potato soufflé. For less formal feasting, party trays and packed lunch boxes fuel business meetings, backyard grad parties, and lengthy end-zone celebrations.

  • Tersiguel's French Country Restaurant
    Back in their native France, Fernand's family owned a farm and Odette's owned a bar in the region of Brittany. When the two met, therefore, it was only a matter of time before they decided to open their own restaurant. But the Tersiguels went above and beyond: they created a chef! Today, their son Michel is the executive chef at their eponymous restaurant. It was 1964 when, with Michel on the way, the couple first came to New York. Within three days of being hired at Top of the Fair, Fernand was promoted to lead bus boy. And within four years, the Tersiguels had founded their first restaurant, La Poularde. They later opened their second, Chez Fernand, though after nine years of success the restaurant was lost in a fire. Though the experience was upsetting, the couple used it as an opportunity to move downtown to the Old Baltimore Shot Tower. In 1990 they opened Tersiguel's French Country Restaurant in the heart of Ellicott City, and the family has resurrected their multigenerational commitment to food—and their passion for the industry—by serving seasonal plates of classic French favorites. Escargots, frog legs, and bœuf à la Bourguignonne dance across the menu before house-made chocolate mousse delights palates. Odette's own family recipe is used to make the pâté de Campagne. So deep is the family's dedication to fine food that some customers even sign up just to shadow Michel for a day, following the chef from his 5 a.m. market trip to the kitchen as he prepares that evening's meals and invents his own type of fire to uses in the oven.

  • East Moon Asian Bistro
    Before diners can even begin to rifle through East Moon Asian Bistro’s vast menu of inventive sushi rolls, fiery curries, and exotic noodle dishes, they must first tackle the question of where to sit. There’s the sleek dining room, with its black Silestone tabletops, cushy booths, and artwork lining the walls. But there’s also the sushi bar, where flat-screen televisions beam down on sushi chefs as they slice up fresh fish before diners’ eyes. Glimmering lanterns festooned with zigzags and stripes create a funky counterpoint to the color schemes of both areas. But once seating arrangements have been decided and orders have been placed, the real fun begins—diners can sit back with a cocktail and watch as servers bring forth a parade of pan-Asian dishes from the kitchen. Plates of crispy spring rolls are soon followed by chicken coconut soup, shrimp teriyaki, and the tofu-vegetable specialty lauded by reporters from Ellicott City Patch as “crispy and fresh.” Platters of sushi burst with salmon, lobster, and crabmeat and arrive decorated with elaborate flourishes—such as fresh caviar and bright flowers that can accurately predict who loves you and who loves you not.
