neither here nor there: need recs between Balto & DC
- baltoellen Feb 19, 2008 08:17 AM
I'm meeting a friend tomorrow from DC for dinner. Neither one of us want to drive to the other's city, so we're going to meet somewhere in the middle....
We were thinking Annapolis, but looking over old threads, the only place that I found interesting was Jalapeno's. But, am open to more options there.
Am also open to options that exist off some exit or another from I-95....
Basically we're looking for a reasonably priced, comfortable and quiet place, with semi-interesting (at the very least) food.
Any suggestions out there?
I've been to KBQ in Bowie a number of times. The BBQ is fantastic, but it's not really a sit down place to meet a friend for dinner kind of place. More of a carry-out with very limited seating, bright lights, and spare decor.
Here's an earlier thread on options in the Crofton-Bowie area for you to consider, as well:
Thanks for these replies. Actually Laurel seems easy to reach. And, I was just reading about Pasta Plus which was recommended in the link that SG provided. I love bbq, but KBQ doesn't sound like a catch up with an old friend kind of place....I need to check with my friend, but she's a meat and potatoes girl, so I think that Vietnamese or Indian may be out, but I'll see.....
Of course, I'll report back....
I just had lunch @ Cafe de Paris today, in Laurel. It's worth checking out. The dinner menu had a good selection and for $42 you can get your choice of three courses - app, entree, dessert. Parking is easy bc it's in an ugly office park building (it's off Rte 108) and it was pretty much a straight shot from Baltimore.
Gunnings is just off either I-295 or I-95 at Rte100...decent food and good atmosphere for conversation
Well, thanks everyone. We didn't end up going last night, due to weather concerns. (yes, we're wimps, but my friend was down to one windshield wiper....)
If we end up meeting for lunch, we''ll head to CdeP, dinner will be Pasta Plus.
