Owings Mills Dinner Rec (No Baltimore)
We're going to dinner on Saturday night (St. Patrick's Day, so it happens) with friends who live in Owings Mills. Want to avoid Baltimore and the whole Irish drinking, rowdy crowd thing. Just want an enjoyable meal where we can catch up with friends while the kids are at grandma's house. Any ideas in the Owings Mills, Reisterstown, Pikesville area?
Thanks for the help. I'm not too familiar with that area.
I've never been but co-workers say good things about Al Pacino Cafe. It's in the same center as Trader Joe's, just outside the beltway on Reisterstown Rd. The menu looks very interesting to me and one of these days I'll make it in. I didn't even know there was also a Timonium location (the website is cafe isis - link below).
I like Liberatore's. I don't think it's a place that attracts the party hearty crowd. Don't let the multiple locations turn you off - it's a local "chain" - just a successful restauranteur spreading his wings to the delight of the neighboring communities. Linwood's was mentioned and is a fav but as noted it can be quite pricey.
By now the decision has already been made. If you want to linger over a nice dinner in a nice atmosphere...Linwoods. Yes pricey.
I agree with Mari Luna, a real sleeper. The Mexican food is quite good. My preferences is the Lamb Shank for $14.00 or the shrimp appetizer. Their specials are quite good as well.
Chef Luna was the former sous chef at Citronelle and executive chef at Babalu in Baltimore when it first opened. The down side is no reservations, bring your own alcohol and the atmosphere, well it is in an old converted Carvel stand. To me worth the wait.
Seafood you can try CJ's. I hear good things about the Artful Palate buried somewhere in Owings Mills.
Let us know where you ended up and notes on your meal.
