This restaurant is our way of giving something new and exciting to the friends and guests who have supported us for so long and have become part of our extended family” said Michele DiMeo, Chief Operating Officer, Monte Restaurant Development Group.
“The Annapolis Town Center is in the heart of Annapolis and also happens to be conveniently located only a few minutes away from our headquarters. When the opportunity presented itself to partner with the premier center here in Annapolis, we jumped at the opportunity and couldn’t think of a better place to open Tuscan Prime. It’s been a long time since a new restaurant opened in Annapolis, and we’re excited to bring quality modern Italian dishes, steaks and chops in a fresh inviting space to our own backyard.”
Conveniently situated at the corner of Towne Centre Boulevard and Tower Place in the Annapolis Town Center, Tuscan Prime is an approachable concept with a modern flair. The restaurant will feature outdoor dining areas, three separate private event spaces, and an open and inviting bar, making it the perfect destination in Annapolis for diners looking to enjoy everything from a leisurely lunch to a classy night out on the town. In addition to prime steaks and chops, award-winning modern Italian cuisine, and a masterfully crafted wine and cocktail list, Tuscan Prime’s menu will feature over the top desserts like a tiramisu milkshake and a carousel of profiteroles making it the ideal destination for any occasion.
“We have spent the last two years creating a variety of events and community-focused amenities that today’s consumer wants,” said Anthony Henry, Annapolis Town Center General Manager. “Providing such fun and innovative offerings has resulted in the draw of new and exciting brands. We are beyond thrilled to add Tuscan Prime to our unique tenant mix,” said Henry. “Already familiar with the desired service of our Annapolis residents, they bring an elevated level of cuisine to the Center!”
