Robert Sietsema at Choptank; Sarah DiGregorio at The Wright


This week in the Voice, Robert Sietsema sails over to Choptank, where “the generosity of the crab cake and its clean, fresh flavor were remarkable.” Sarah DiGregorio paints a picture of The Wright, which serves “dainty portions of fish or meat with a few pretty vegetables, carefully dribbled and swirled sauces, and few carbohydrates.”

Steve Cuozzo isn’t a fan of the decor at Choptank, but finds the seafood “skillfully executed, and without the epidemic overreach of places that heap the kitchen sink on a plate.”
