There's a little something for everyone at Annie's, and that's precisely the problem. The restaurant can't decide whether it's a cozy neighborhood eatery that specializes in chicken pot pie and country meatloaf or an upscale destination spot known for its five-spiced Ahi-crusted tuna and truffle ravioli. Nothing here is out-of-this-world, but if you stick to simpler items you're more likely to leave feeling satisfied. Flavor-wise, the chef plays it safe, even in dishes that might benefit from a more adventurous approach. But what Annie's lacks in boldness, it makes up for in rustic charm and greenery: potted green plants crown every table, the front room has two giant bouquets, and on the far wall near the kitchen are shelves with still more plants and flowers. Seating is on outdoorsy benches up front, or in the lively main room, on faux antique green wooden chairs. It's easy to see why eastsiders wait patiently for tables during the weekend brunch rush, with visions of Challah French toast and omelets (available at any time) in their heads. Many variations of waffles and pancakes, quesadillas, burgers, chicken and ham sandwiches and wraps, good selection of salads (nicoise, chicken, Cobb, and Asian steak).Recommended Dishes
