Good restaurant between DC & Baltimore

sas May 26, 2010 03:25 PM

Meeting up with friends from Boston who will be dropping there son off to college in DC . We all love food and great restaurants. Trying to think of someplace between that we could me for dinner we both will be traveling on Sunday so going to DC or Baltimore does not really work. Any suggestions for between??

    Open to sichuan? Grace Garden - though it's certainly closer to B-More than DC.

      Grace Garden is an amazing place, hard to believe it exists where it exists. It is a hole-in-the-wall with a serious chef from Hong Kong. While they do have some SIchuan dishes, that is only part of the menu.

      There are some great dishes on the regular menu, plus some of the gold are dishes that need to be ordered in advance.

      Best to take the suggestions from this thread:

        I agree with Grace Garden, but I think it's closed on Sundays.

      Victoria Gastropub is conveniently located to Rt 95. Good food and an extensive beer selection.

        For a really special meal (with prices to match) consider Antrim 1844 or Elkridge Furnace Inn. Both are unusual and have great presentation and service, in addition to wonderful food. For casual consider Hunan Manor in Columbia, with great food, but service is not quite as wonderful.

          Antrim 1844 is quite nice, but in regards to the OPs request -- it's nowhere near being between DC and Baltimore.

          In the Columbia area, Victoria Gastropub is good, as is Iron Bridge wine company, as is Bistro Blanc in Glenelg. Victoria's is better if you're into beer, Iron Bridge if you prefer wine and small plates. Bistro Blanc is further away from I-95, but the food is good and it contains some interesting art inside. It too, has an extensive wine selection.

          For more casual dining, Laurel has Pasta Plus and Red Hot & Blue bar-b-q.

            Pasta Plus (which opens at 4 on Sunday) or Victoria would be my choices.
