Always, there were those lovely old country estates and gracious manor taverns with roaring fireplaces, but in the old days fine dining was associated with the city. Not so anymore. Now, there are more compelling reasons than ever for diners to cross county lines for a good meal. The 50 best county restaurants in Howard County, Anne Arundel County and Baltimore County is a mix of the old and the new, destinations for special occasions and joints for Monday night suppers, the chef-driven and crowd-pleasing. What made the list? The consistent, the conscientious, the creative and, sometimes, the cool.

11. Sushi Sono( Amy Davis, Baltimore Sun / November 11, 2010 )
The reason to make the trip to Lake Kittamaqundi is that Sushi Sono might just have the best sushi in the four-county area. Now a perennial award-winner, the Japanese restaurant has steadily built its reputation over the nearly 13 years it's been open, and news that the owner and chef, who goes by the name of King, is introducing a new roll to this repertoire spreads like green tea over rice.
