Turning 50: need comfort through stellar food.

Hi Hounds,

Yes, I am coming up on the half-a-century mark in early June. The hubby and I want a nice, possibly atmospheric dinner and are willing to drive up to two hours from Adelphi/Hyattsville. Loves: seafood, locally-produced anything, a view . . . any thoughts?

  1. I've heard really nice things about Trummer's on Main, which would make for a nice day-trip.

    1. How about Baltimore? Charleston in Fells Point has stellar food, nice atmosphere...great for a 50th!

        Yes, indeed. Some good music at the Cat's Eye and a room at the Admiral Fell Inn to round out the weekend. That'll make you forget all about being old. Works for me every time.

      2. I celebrated my 50th in the tasting room at Restaurant Eve. It was fantastic!

        1. All great suggestions above. I would add: Corduroy in DC for great seafood. Blacksalt again for great seafood. Or perhaps a drive to Annapolis to eat crab at Cantler's or at O'Leary's in Eastport Annapolis. Although it doesn't have as good of a view as Carrol's Creek.

          1. I've never actually been, but Patowmack Farms sounds like exactly what you're asking for, locally produced and atmospheric.

              My dear family treated me to dinner at Patowmack Farm for my 50th b-day last year (ok, it still ended up on my Amex bill, but the thought was what counts, right? LOL). It was very nice and an excellent choice for a special occasion. The views are spectacular, too.
