Named after a river that flows into Chesapeake Bay, Choptank seeks to reproduce the cooking of Baltimore, and mainly succeeds. The crabcakes are glorious, with little filler. Though a bit smaller, they compare favorably with the legendary ones served at Faidley"s. Polish sausage has actually been sourced in Baltimore, at Ostrowski"s, so that base in well-covered, and the fried chicken makes another right-on imitation of the Lexington Market original. There"s a decent crab chowder (but no authentic crab soup) and a passel of homemade potato chips dusted with - What else?--Old Bay Seasoning. The interior of the restaurant is as convoluted as a ship"s hold.
