I counted them up and learned that we have enjoyed 32 restaurants in Rockville in the past two years, some more than once, and some several times. My wife and I go for lunch twice a week after the gym; and I go by myself after a meeting, after golf at Redgate, or shopping.
My favorite for lunch is the Mosaic, famous for waffles, but offering lots more. This is a chef owned restaurant with the chef in attendance. Mosaic’s soups reflect a lot of work and their three-soup sampler is something everyone should enjoy. Service is great. In addition, the noise level is moderate so you can have a conversation with your partner.
For bargains and top quality, I like the Silver Diner and its focus on healthy eating. Another bargain, is Panera, which has great lunches although the place is packed and a little hectic until mid afternoon. They need a larger facility.
For the best breakfast with eggs, bacon, corned beef hash, and grits, or potatoes, I like the original Ambrosia near the Giant on lower Rockville Pike.
