Best Restaurants - Howard County, Maryland

Sushi Sono tops the lists by topping the roll with crunch rice
If you're new to HowChow, these are some lists of great food around Howard County.  The posts certainly let you skip around the blog and hopefully give you some places to explore for snacks or meals.  It's not just best restaurants -- but also best food experiences and best places to buy food in markets and stores.  I'll keep the most-recent year's versions here, or you can click for all the "best of posts" going back to 2009.
If you're thinking about moving to Howard County (or just want more information), check out a 2012 series about restaurants and shopping all across the county.

Or check out two prior series of posts -- a "tour of Howard County" describing restaurants and markets in specific areas or a 2009 guide to what I've learned about Howard County from "best Chinese" and "best takeout" to "best BBQ" and "best burgers."
