The Washingtonian picked two Howard County restaurants among its 100 Very Best Places To Eat -- as listed in the January 2011 edition but not posted on the Web as far as I can see.
Sushi Sono and Jesse Wong's Asean Bistro are Columbia's representatives on a list that runs to the highest-end joints in DC. Congrats to both places, and thanks to the Washingtonian for considering Howard County to be part of the city.
Sushi Sono is a no-brainer. It made Washingtonian's 2010 list, and the sushi has made it one of our favorite splurges. Asean Bistro is a more-surprising choice to me. It's a fine restaurant, but Best of Washington? It didn't make my most-recent Best of Howard County.
