Tonight, I am going to O'Donnell's (my wife's birthday). What is this thing about Washington seafood restaurants and rum buns? I remember that Kushner's always had rum buns as well. (I think Bish Thompsons had a mini-bread loaf instead, and I have not been to Crisfields in so long I can't remember what they have). Mind you, I like rum buns, and I like O'Donnell's. I just have never heard of anyplace outside of the DC area where seafood restaurants serve them. Does anyone know the story behind this peculiar local quirk (or am I mistaken about it being a local thing)?
