Maple Lawn is an airy Maryland neighborhood full of attractive new developments. A diverse food scene has quickly flourished here. Among the many popular dinner options is a fine Indian restaurant serving traditional mulligatawny soup and impeccably prepared tandoori. Nearby is an upscale tapas bistro. For a light lunch, try the refreshing apple and strawberry salad. Or, if you're ordering to impress, you can't go wrong with the chef's signature rack of lamb. If you're seeking more traditional East coast fare, you'll find it at a nearby grille. Sample shellfish fresh from the sea with the raw bar menu, or enjoy them Italian style in a seafood risotto.
