Waterstone Revisited

This little grill/pub needs some loving, as I suggested several months ago. Finally got the opportunity to make a return visit on a Wednesday evening about 5:30 or so. The restaurant was empty for the exemption of about 4/5 gals enjoying drinks at the bar (girls night out I suppose?).

Hubby's Caasar salad was as ordinary as most offered in any Baltimore restaurant (upscale or less). We requested some bread (doesn't exist), but the warmed pita was nice dipped into the extra Caesar dressing we requested.

My lamb chops were exquisitely seasoned and I loved the julienned carrots, zucchiini and other squash stir fry along with the fingerlikng potatoes.

My husband's veal chop was succulent and a great value--It's not the size or quality of the vealchop offered at the Prime Rib , Sottor Sopra, ec. but it's about the third of the price and quite a nice portion--and the accompanying vegetalbes (mashed potatoes and those glorious julienned vegetables).

I recommend this comfortable, delicious restaurant. Good wines and great service in a friendly, low-keyed, casual atmosphere. FoiGras

    Showed the website of this spot to my hubby and he's so impressed he wants to try it ASAP. Perhaps we'll run into you there! Thanks for the review!

      That would be nice to run into you guys. I think you'll both like Waterstone. It's not at the level of Prime Rib, Charleston, etc., but we save the "fancy" places for weekends and more casual dining establishments for weeknights.

      Both times at Waterstone were pleasant. Hope you also enjoy. FoiGras

      P.S. I just reread my OP and saw all of the typos. My hubby was just complaining that something was wrong with our keyboard. I laughed and told him it was just his own method of typing, not anything wrong with the keyboard. Oops!! I may be wrong on that one. IN any event, he just left to go buy a new keyboard.

      We have eaten at Waterstone several times. Lamb chops are our favorite. Wine prices are reasonable and we like the bottle specials. Waterstone is a little off the main path in Mt. Vernon, but worth the walk. Would recommend it to anyone.
