Any suggestions for either Frederick or Rt 70 from Baltimore on the way to Frederick? Any and all ideas would be appreciated, without regard for price, type of food etc. Thanks-

  1. I like Brewer's Alley in downtown Frederick. Comfort food and very good IPA.

    1. I haven't been there, but on my to-go list is Morgan's American Grill in New Market. It had a nice write up in Frederick Magazine a few months ago. http://www.morgansamericangrill.com/

      1. re: wysguymd

        The Orchard on N Market, the historic district/downtown, somewhat across from Brewers Alley. It has mostly non-meat menu but not fully veggie. but if like beer and not driving after dining do some tasting at Brewers.

      2. Nidos in Frederick is the best Italian in the area. If the roast pork is a special, it is not to be missed. Their salads are lackluster but i love the white pizza. Other family favorites include linguine with clam sauce and their homemade ravioli.
        If you are looking for an upscale surf and turf kind of place, Dutch's Daughter is a solid option. Have been going there since I was a little girl and their food is always consistent. I typically get the cream of crab soup and the softshells if they are in season.
        The latest place that I visited was the Tasting Room. I'm not a fan of the ambiance (cramped and super loud) but the food more than makes up for that. Their cocktails are noteworthy too. I think this restaurant could hold it's own against any of the finer baltimore eateries (salt, chameleon cafe, bicycle) Everything we ate was fantastic. I specifically remember enjoying the tuna crudo. Downtown Frederick has clearly come a long way in the past 5 years.

        1. I like Brewer's Alley, Dutch's Daughter and Pane e Vino (Mt. Airy MD http://www.panevinobistro.com/)

          1. You really need to go to Volt. After two meals there (one at Table 21 and one regular meal), I think this is the best restaurant in the entire region and probably one of the most special restaurants in the country right now, especially for the price. For more detailed write ups of my two visits, search "Volt."

            1. If you are looking for an EXCELLENT new restaurant in Frederick check out the Cellar Door 102 N. Market Street.
              I think this, without a doubt is the best food I have ever had in Frederick, I have lived here for my entire life of 48 years. The quality of Volt but at much less of a cost.

              William the Chef, graduated top of his class at the highest rated culinary school in the US, Institute of Culinary Education in New York (ICE). He has claimed the Food & Wine's Best New Chefs in America award, the James Beard Award and Pastry Art & Design's Ten Best Pastry Chefs award.

              He was the pastry Chef to make the birthday cake for Martha Stuart's 90th birthday while working at Wolfgang Puch's Spago restaurant in Beverly Hills.

              You will not be disapointed!
