It’s hard to imagine a restaurant that would be a better fit for the American Visionary Art Museum than Mr. Rain’s Fun House. Like the museum itself, it’s eclectic in the best sense of the word— mosaicist Bob Benson’s flashies dangle from the ceiling, a pink and orange wall features a campy portrait of the owners (three of whom ran the beloved restaurant Sputnik in Crownsville) and the waitstaff wears Western shirts and homespun aprons. On the menu is everything from purple yam soup to lumpia, made by co-owner Maria Buszinski’s mother, to East African-spiced chicken to a Kobe beef hot dog. Between the food and the fun, you’ll forget there’s no view of the harbor anymore. Open for lunch and dinner Tuesday-Friday, and for brunch on weekends. 800 Key Highway, 443-524-7379
