I'm having a group of college friends come to visit me here in Baltimore. We went to culinary school together 20 years ago so I want to choose something very special. After reading the reviews for B&O I was all set to make a reservation, only to find that they are having a wedding that night and are closed to the public. One of my friends says he wants to have fois gras. I'm looking for something a bit upscale with a good bar. Thanks in advance all.
Bluegrass Tavern in Federal Hill has a nightly foie gras prep that's usually pretty good, and they have a nice beer, wine, and bourbon selection.
So we went to Salt. They accommodated the 7 of us well. anticipated that parking would be horrific so 6 of us took a cab. We started with cocktails and appetizers. 4 of us got the legendary fois gras and kobe beef slider. We also got the duck fat fries with the trio of aioli. The black truffle aioli is phenomenal. I got the Grilled New Zealand Rack of Lamb with
Gruyere spaetzle mac & cheese, Swiss chard, mission fig demi-glace. The '08 Castano Monastrell that the servers suggested complimented the lamb and figs perfectly. The crab cakes were the best I've had in a while. Even though we were stuffed we made room for dessert. had the trio of ice creams. Candied Ginger, Dark Chocolate Hazelnut and Brown Sugar and Banana ice creams each graced their own tiny cone. The apple cake with candied bacon and cherry cardamom ice cream was also a hit. The wait staff was gracious and accommodating - even when we split the check 7 ways. All in all we had a great time.
