Detroit hound in search of recs

Summerfield | Mar 26, 2007 08:51 AM

Greetings, DC-area 'hounders. I am coming into town this Friday with son to visit the daughter (Glover Park area). I've been perusing the recent threads and find that I am attracted to:
Bistrot Du Coin
Colorado Kitchen
2 Amy's

I need recs for a seafood place. When I lived in DC a long, long time ago, wife and I would go to Hogate's and another place right next to it on the waterfront. Also went to O'Donnell's (I think) up Wisconsin Ave near the MD border. I gather that these places probably no longer function. But I would like a rec for a place like they were.

Italian: Dino's or Luigi's?

My brother lives in Reston. I'd like a rec for the best Chinese food in his area. "Authenticity" does not matter, just great, well-prepared food, perhaps with pan-fried noodles.

Also, where is the best NY-style pizza?

I hear that there is a French restaurant in Leonardtown. Anyone know of this place? The only reason I mention it is that my sis-in-law lives way down in St. Mary's County and I thought that Leonardtown, while not the half-way point from DC, would be a good 3/4-way point for a meal.

Is the Drift Inn near Mechanicsville open on Sundays?

Lastly, recs for Annapolis, any cuisine.

Double-lastly, is there a place in Baltimore, maybe near Peabody, that I should not miss?

Thanks in advance for all your help. I'm gettin' hungry.
