Extending a warm welcome in Annapolis

Leo is making waves in Annapolis’ Uptown Arts District. Brian and Hilarey Leonard opened the New American restaurant and bar earlier this year; the duo also owns two DC bars: Lost & Found and Free State.

Executive chef Matthew Lego sources local ingredients from nearby farms and purveyors to create modern, seasonal and sustainable fare. Entrées such as Crispy Chicken Breast with carrot purée and pea tendrils share the limelight with charcuterie plates, shareable apps and special salads.

“Leo is a comfortable, lively and casual space where everyone is welcome to gather,” says Hilarey, who serves as the restaurant’s sommelier. “It’s also our mission to support other local, small businesses.” 212 West Street; leoannapolis.com
