I'm meeting friends from DC for dinner on Saturday and we'd like to meet inthe middle. Any suggestions for a nice place? Not burgers/wings, not super high end. Thanks

        Totally not midway. It may be a very good restaurant, but would be out of the way. How about Rumor Mill in Ellicott City. Also, Victoria Gastro Pub has a wonderful varied menu and a large selection of wines and beers. FoiGras

            Grace Garden is the hands down choice if your friends are chowhounds -- it's seriously the best food in the area. That said, the ambiance leaves something to be desired.

            Cafe de Paris is good food in a nice atmosphere. Highly recommended, although I'd still take GG for food first.

              Cafe de Paris in Columbia off Rt 29 is very good--classic french bistro

                I second the Grace Garden option. Pasta Plus in Laurel is pretty good, too and quite reasonable. Ironbridge, Aida and Victoria Gastropub are all decent options in Columbia...

                  How about Grace Garden for Chinese?
