And the Winners Are ...

Best of the Bay 2012

For 15 years, we’ve asked you, our readers, to weigh in on your favorite things here in Chesapeake Country and determine the Best of the Bay.
    By no means a scientific study, Best of the Bay is more a reflection of your passions. In some cases the ballots reflected a sense of teamwork, as with the shops of Maryland Avenue, of which more than a few took Best of honors. For others, it was a passionate campaign, as with Mike’s Bar & Crab House, whose fans awarded it multiple honors. For still others, it was a matter of loyalty, as with Zü ­Coffee, whose customers again returned the cafe to the ranks of Best of winners. And for some, like the town of North Beach, it was civic pride.
    Some categories have multiple winners, as your votes came to a draw.
    As much a story as the winners was the race itself, so for the first time we're including the full list of vote-getters, awarding Runners Up and Honorable Mention.

The Best of the Bay is a chance for our readers to have their say, but with the results in, we wanted to give the winners a chance to have their say, too. You’ll see the write-ups for the winners who chose to advertise within these pages. We hope you find them as enjoyable to read as we did.

Family-owned and located in Riva, Maryland, Mike’s Bar & Crabhouse has been a part the community for over half a century. As one of the few remaining Maryland-style crab houses, Mike’s continues to offer crabs in the traditional Maryland fashion, on brown paper, with bowls of spice and vinegar. Our restaurant also offers a full menu of choices, including, but not limited to, steaks, burgers, seafood and, of course, our delicious crab cakes. We have plenty of seating and a tiki bar outside on the deck overlooking the water. Our indoor bar can seat over 90 people and has over 16 widescreen televisions available to watch almost any sport. Upstairs, we have a recently renovated private banquet room available for meetings and parties. We offer complimentary docking for our customers.

Best Bay Beach

North Beach is a community of choices. We take great pride in our historic heritage, eclectic events and our diverse recreational opportunities. North Beach has much to offer citizens and visitors alike. You can enjoy the sun and the Chesapeake Bay while relaxing on the sandy beach. The boardwalk, lined with blossoming flowerbeds and dotted with park benches, is very popular among athletes and casual strollers. The beach and boardwalk are becoming a most sought-out venues for weddings by the beautiful Chesapeake. The fishing pier is popular spot for those seeking the catch of the day.
    You will find shopping opportunities for all budgets including antiques, fine arts, novelties and gifts. There are great restaurants and bakeries in town that offer causal and fine dining. The Friday Nights Farmers Market is the best place to buy local. Wetlands Overlook Park is a wildlife refuge in tidal marshlands where native species make their homes and seasonal migrants find a welcome place to rest.
    Special events that cater to families and adults are major attractions. The Bayside History Museum is home to an extensive collection of memorabilia from the surrounding bayside communities. All of North Beach’s attractions are clustered within easy walking distance of each other, making it the perfect place to spend the day.
    If you haven’t been to North Beach, please visit. We are eager to show you The Jewel of Chesapeake Bay.

Zü Coffee

Best Bakery, Kate’s at Zu
Best Cafe
Best Coffeehouse
Friendliest Wait Staff
Best Under-21 Hangout
Best WiFi Hotspot

Our baker, Kate, is primarily responsible for the bakery award. Fabulous stuff and very innovative. Her fresh peach muffins and scones in peach are … oohh! Right now, she’s doing cranberry scones, coconut-citrus macaroons and the usual blueberry muffins and scones. Her cookies are killer, too. We love the butterscotch
chip, but the chocolate chip always goes fastest.
    Kristin, our primary roaster, pumps out batches of fresh-roasted coffee beans.
     Work, play, have a good day: We have a great time with our Zu Crew.
    The success of Zu is because of great product put out by great people. Zu’s famous waitstaff has a little fun, a little sass, yet takes the job serious. It’s worth coming in to work here just to see them dive into the job. They love it!

McGarvey’s Saloon & Oyster Bar

Best Oysters
Best Bar
Best Bar Food
Best Bloody Mary

Mike Ashford opened McGarvey’s in 1975, back when downtown was a rundown, unappealing place to eat, shop or drink. It was a risk that everyone told him would never succeed. Turns out, he knew what he was doing. To this day, McGarvey’s is still a thriving, immensely popular Annapolis institution of class and character, cherished and enjoyed by three generations of Annapolitans and Marylanders. It’s the kind of place you got your first job, had your first legal drink, met the love of your life, celebrated the important milestones and accomplishments or just stop by to enjoy the company of friends, family and good food when you needed to relax and recharge — and it still is today!
    We are honored to receive so many hospitality accolades from our local community these past years and look forward to earning more in the years to come. Meantime, we are working hard every day to provide cut-above service, incredibly fresh seafood, award-winning naturally raised Maryland sirloin burgers, innovative specials, honest drinks, hand-picked craft beers and wines, phenomenal Happy Hours, superb special events and parties— all wrapped up in a upbeat, positive, social atmosphere of celebration and good cheer. It’s what we do and we love it.
    These days you can travel almost anywhere and find the same restaurants you find on the outskirts of town. With few exceptions, these are cooperate, boring cookie-cutter operations, with constantly changing staff that seek to dictate to average Americans what they should eat and think about food — while taking their cooperate dollars right out of town.
    We believe our customers are much smarter than average.

Annapolis Seafood Market

Best Fish Market

We’re delighted but not surprised Bay Weekly readers voted Annapolis Seafood Best Seafood.
    Seafood is what we do, and we take it seriously, specially tailoring each order to each customer’s request. We are not a big-box chain where seafood is just a small part of the offerings. We have been a neighborhood seafood market for over 40 years. Locally owned and operated, we have three convenient locations: Annapolis, Severna Park and Edgewater, where seafood-lovers eat in at a full-service restaurant as well as carry out raw or cooked fin- and shellfish and specialty sides.

Catherine’s Skin Care & Day Spa

Best Aesthetician • Best Facial

As a spa-goer, I had noticed a lack of attention to specialization in the day spa industry, and when I became a licensed aesthetician, I saw that many spa owners or managers did not have aesthetic or bodywork backgrounds. Because their focus is on hair or nails, sometimes the aesthetician or massage therapist does not have the tools to provide the optimal service or product to their clients.
    As I opened my business, our economy was going into a recession, and I realized that many people did not prefer a one-stop-shop salon/spa. They wanted the massage therapist, hairdresser, aesthetician or nail tech that best fit their needs for the best value. I decided that we were not going to be all things to all people.
    Our philosophy is Customized Care with Conscience. You will not see 15 facial choices on our menu, because each service is customized to the client’s needs at that time. The client knows their desired outcomes, and our therapists are the experts on what will address that need in the best possible way. Because of our boutique environment, we do not have the luxury of disappointing our clients, and because of our philosophy, we will not be satisfied with just an okay result.
    We are so happy that our clients voted for us! It makes us want to work even harder to make sure we live up to that honor. Thank you, and come see us in 2013!

1616 Forest Dr., Suite 4, Annapolis, 410-267-0083, www.catherinespa.net

Mike’s Crabhouse North

Best New Restaurant of 2012

Newly opened in May of 2012, Mike’s Crabhouse North is located on Rock Creek in Pasadena, and shares its dock with White Rocks Marina. Mike’s North takes its roots from its parent restaurant, Mike’s Bar & Crabhouse in Riva. Mike’s North offers steamed crabs the Maryland way — on brown paper, with bowls of spice and vinegar. In addition, our restaurant offers steaks, burgers, seafood and our delicious crab cakes. Mike’s North offers indoor and outdoor seating, as well as an indoor bar and a large outdoor tiki bar. Like Mike’s, we offer complimentary docking for our customers coming in by water.

Magnolia Shoppe

Best Place to Buy Last-Minute Gifts

    Having a business in the community that we live in sets the bar high. Greeting and assisting each customer that enters the shoppe gives each of us great satisfaction. The shoppe receives great support from the community, and in turn we share our blessings by supporting local churches, schools and the U.S. Armed Forces.

Jing Ying Institute of Kung Fu and Tai Chi

Best Martial Arts Studio

Jing Ying opened in the Year of the Dragon, 2000, and is a hidden dragon of Anne Arundel County. It’s off the beaten path but well worth the effort to find. Ranked as one of the top kung fu and tai chi schools in the nation, we offer an extensive program that is unmatched in the area.
    Adult beginner kung fu students have over a dozen classes a week available to them, while advanced students have even more. The tai chi program has daytime and evening classes for those who want the many health benefits of practicing tai chi as well as programs for those interested in learning the martial applications. There are opportunities to train with some of the top tai chi masters in the world.
The kids’ kung fu program takes a serious approach to martial arts while still making it fun. There are even family classes where parents can train with their children.
    Jing Ying translates as best of the best, and we have lived up to that name. We have won every local award for best martial arts. Our secret is having the best students in the area. Most drive by at least six other schools to come to us because they are serious about training but also want a friendly environment that is involved and supportive of the local community. If you want to learn to defend yourself or to get in the best shape of your life, Jing Ying has a program for you.
