Since its opening in 2008, this restaurant's seafood specialties have helped it emerge as a neighborhood standout. Chef-owner Kevin Moore not only curates a seasonal menu that emphasizes fresh, local ingredients but also makes weekly changes based on new inspirations and local market finds. The result is a menu with creative takes on old standbys, such as Eggs Chesapeake—a Benedict that replaces ham with crab—and tastily prepared traditional dishes such as the blueberry pancakes, which have made Kevin's a go-to destination for weekend brunch.
