When I ate at the first Tsunami in Annapolis eight years ago, the name made perfect sense. A tidal wave of noise hit you when you walked into the dining room. Every table and every stool was taken at this popular Asian fusion grill and bar. The wait for the food was long, and being there was almost unbearable. But dinner was excellent.
I haven't been back since, but I eagerly awaited the opening of Tsunami No. 2 in Baltimore, in the Tack Factory complex behind Little Italy. The owners are savvy restaurateurs, and I was sure they would avoid the mistakes of their first venture.
