Tuna Tartare in B'More

KCog1 Sep 6, 2008 09:23 PM

Hi everyone,
My boyfriend loves sushi, but he has never had tuna tartare. I haven't had it in a while and now I want some. Where can I get good tuna tartare in/around Baltimore? I'd prefer appetizers and drinks over a full sit-down dinner, but either way I'll appreciate the recommendation. Thanks!

    Jordan's Steakhouse on Main Street Ellicott City. You can sit in the lounge on one of the sofas to enjoy apps and drinks instead of a sit down... the grilled Caesar Salad is pretty good too!

      The Carlyle Club on University parkway near JHU/Homewood. It's not on the menu- you gotta ask for it. It's incredible.

          Blue Sea Grille and Ixia have fantastic tuna tartare. My hubby has had seared rare tuna at Tabrizi's which was excellent, but hasn't as yet tried their tuna tartare, but I would imagine that it is equally good. FoiGras

            For more of a cheap eats option, I really enjoy the tuna tar tare at Kyodai Rotating Sushi Bar in Towson. It is spicy tuna mixed with sesame seed and pieces of avocado, served in a gutted half of avocado skin.

              I agree, the tuna tartare at Bicycle is fantastic. It's the perfect time of year to sit outside, too.

                I have to "third" the suggestion of Bicycle, but I guess the OP should be warned that Bicycle's version is an avocado and tuna tartare, and is served with a spicy thai peanut sauce drizzled over it/on the side. I raved about the tuna tartare at Bicycle to a friend of mine who said she didn't like it because of the sauce.
