The eatery will reportedly move from West Annapolis to a shopping plaza on Jennifer Road.
A West Annapolis eatery known for its healthy and local options is moving to a new location on Jennifer Road, according to a report in The Capital. The b.b. Bistro restaurant is leaving its spot on eclectic Annapolis Street to a larger and cheaper location at the Annapolis Plaza, in between Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts and HH Gregg. The new location is near Trader Joe's, where the owners used to work. Owner Carla Lucente said the move was partially necessitated by a rise in rent. Currently known for breakfast and lunch, the bistro and coffee shop may extend its daytime hours and open on Saturdays at the new location. Read about b.b. Bistro's plans in The Capital.

Here, the Patch guide to St. Patrick's Day in Annapolis, from the best Guinness pours to the most delicious Irish dinners.
Although Annapolis already kicked off St. Patrick's Day festivities with a parade through downtown, there are still many opportunities to celebrate the March 17 holiday. Maybe you aren't as Irish as St. Patrick himself (who was kidnapped and sent to Ireland as a slave, escaped in 409 and returned to Ireland in 432, believing he had been called upon to spread the word of God) but on March 17, everyone's a little Irish.

Bay Ridge area of Annapolis seeing changes to dining scene.
Mexican Café To Go, located at the Bay Forest shopping center has closed. The restaurant opened in 2005, while its sister restaurant, Mexican Café, was still located just down the road on Bay Ridge.

Almost directly across the street, in the space which was occupied by the Parthenon, a sign indicates a restaurant called Caliente will be coming soon. Messages left on the number on Caliente's Facebook page have not been returned.

The owners of a new speakeasy-style restaurant and bar coming to Main Street offer a video update on the progress.
DRY 85, a new speakeasy-style restaurant and bar, teamed up with Annapolis videographer Michael Eller from Monachetti.com to offer a video progress update. Last month, Patch reported that DRY 85 owner Brian Bolter described the concept as going "into a back garage where it has a nod to the speakeasy flavor"—with a modern twist. Brian Bolter and his wife, Lisa, already own a Main Street restaurant called Red Red Wine Bar that opened in July 2011. DRY 85 will be a few doors down at 193 Main St. In the video, the Bolters thank the community for coming out to support their efforts to get DRY 85 off the ground. The restaurant's focus will be on bourbon, beer and comfort food. And what about the name? DRY 85 gets its name from Sen. John Morris …

Brunch is also served Sundays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Union Jack's also has an extensive selection of beers—plus many wines and specialty drinks. …
The space in the shopping center where the restaurant once was is still vacant—tell us what business you'd like to see come to town.
The Three Brothers Italian Restaurant shut down last fall and the space remains vacant in the busy Festival at Riva shopping center located at the corner of Riva Road and Forest Drive. The venerable restaurant was there for more than 15 years and known to cater events for the Naval Academy, including their Super Bowl parties. This year, the huge pizza order went to Papa John's. If you're a Three Brothers fan, there is still a location on Annapolis Road in Odenton. It seems strange to drive by and see the empty storefront on the corner at 2341 Forest Dr., between Pigtails & Crewcuts and Mattress Discounters. TELL US: What would you like to see in that location?
