The tenth Chinese restaurant open Christmas Day
OK, here are the nominations to replace Hunan Annapolis on today's Top Ten. I haven't been to them, so I can't decide. Please post below if you've eaten at any of them and can flesh out the description a bit.
One thing my editor pointed out about the original list was that none of them is in the city. I called a couple (Ding How and P. F. Chang's), but they aren't open. Maybe eating Chinese on Christmas Day is a 'burb thing.
Here are five suggestions, all outside the city: ...
* Grace's Fortune, 15500 Annapolis Road, Bowie, 301-805-1108. This sounds pricey but elegant from the reviews on the net, just the ticket for a holiday meal. I called, and it is open Christmas Day noon to 10 p.m. Thanks to Clint for bringing it to our attention.
*Szechuan Inn in Severna Park, which bb says opens at 2 p.m. and has excellent food.
* David Chu's China Bistro, 7105 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville, 410-602-5008. This got voted Best Kosher Restaurant recently in a local survey and would probably have been on my original list except I wasn't the one who reviewed it for The Sun. It's open 11:15 a.m. to 10 p.m.
* East/West Bistro where Hunan Annapolis was in Pasadena. Thanks, Misha, for the info about it. It opens at 3:30 p.m. That much I know.
*China Fortune in Owings Mills. Alisa says, The food is so fresh and there are so many choices. Open 11:15 a.m. to 10 p.m.
