Good (Non Chain Food) in the Columbia, MD Area?

SisterT | Mar 12, 2002 08:17 AM

I like variety and I like good food. What I can do without are the chains. Living in Columbia, I have searched and searched for a few good restaurants that aren't major chains and have something special to offer. I'm not doing well. El Azteca is decent thought the remodeling took away some of its charm. Narita Sushi has a limited menu but is worth the visit.

I've tried asking my co-workers for suggestions but they all recited the usual list of suspects (Z Tejas, Copelands, etc...). Recently my co-workers and I went to "this cool new restaurant" that had opened up. To my horror we pulled up in front of FUDDRUCKERS!

My fiance and I spend more time eating in Rockville, Bethesda, and Silver Spring that we're seriously considering moving to one of those areas.

Please, please tell me that there is at least 2 or 3 real restaurants in the Columbia area that I've overlooked. Or am I doomed?

Thanks for the help all...
