Well, it's nearly Spring and my tastebuds are hankering for shad roe. Does anyone have reccommendations as to which restaurants in the Balto. area are serving it? FoiGras

  1. Not in Baltimore but if you are willing to travel to DC for a wonderful dining experience, Equinox usually has it on the menu.

    But it seems a little early for shad roe season. Isn't it usually mid-April?

      Thanks for your response--wasn't certain when the season kicked in. If I can't get my "fix" in Balto., would be willing to travel a bit.

      I love the D.C. area and used to dine out at least twice a week there and Northern Virginia in the early 1990's (when the traffic wasn't quite as prohibitive).

      Sounds as though Equinox is a "Destination Restaurant' even without the shad roe. YUM! FoiGras

        I also feel like I saw it in an appetizer at Hook last year...but I'm not 100% sure.

    2. Don't know when the season officially starts, but Kwon's in Cross St. Market is selling it fresh these days.....looks very tasty....
