Baltimore is doing a Restaurant Week, hon
Anyone stand out restaurants that are on the list???
A friend said they are trying "True." Can anyone comment on this one?
Always wanted to try the Bicycle.....
www.CITYPEEK.com has the list....
Some friends and I ate The Bicycle for the first time a few weeks ago and we had a totally outstanding meal.
My only criticism is that everything seemed maybe one notch too complex. For example, I had this appetizer: "Seared Diver Scallops - porcini crusted scallops, braised napa cabbage with apple + bacon, white truffle vinaigrette, pumpkin-parmesan slaw, beet reduction". The scallops were perfect, but I don't think the dish would have suffered with one or two fewer ingredients on the plate. This is just a style thing on my part though.
By the way, the table was unanimous that the Coffee Crème Brûlée was the best crème brûlée in town.
Highly recommended. I know we'll be going back.
I was underwhelmed by Blue Sea Grill. Everything was done perfectly, but it wasn't terribly exciting fare. Just standard grilled fish, side dishes, etc. Yes, the decor is loverly and it's got a great bar, but you can do better in terms of food in Baltimore, IMHO.
We also got a thank you card in the mail from the server, which freaked me out a bit. I hope they've stopped doing it, because it crosses the line. (He asked me to sign up for their special events--which I have never recieved. That's how he got my mailing address.)
