#44 Aida Bistro
#44 Aida Bistro

What we love about this family-owned Italian restaurant, besides its commitment to Howard County farmers and its thoughtfulness about gluten-free options, is how well it works for both nice, long Saturday dinners in the dining room, and a quick Tuesday night stop at the wine bar.

Absolutely try the braised short-rib Bolognese over homemade linguine, and check out the innovative wine-on-tap program.
