Baltimore restaurants with fireplaces?

amyatkendall Jan 19, 2012 09:38 AM

We're hoping to brianstorm a list of cozy restaurants in Baltimore that have fireplaces for cold winter date nights! Doesn't have to be upscale (although they can be).

Any help greatly appreciated...

    In Sparks is the Milton Inn. They have multiple rooms with fire places. If you call you for your reservation you can request to be placed in front of a fireplace... they have always followed through!

        Last night I had dinner at the Carlyle Club (by Johns Hopkins) with a friend and was reminded that there is a fireplace there too! Moreover, it is really a cozy, romantic place, with cute booths for two. The food was also delicious! I particulalry loved the benghan khas appetizer (eggplant in a rich tomato sauce served with fresh naan). If you love Indian food, this would be a great date night place. And the prices are relatively inexpensive.

          Hull St Blues has a fire in the Commodore room. Their $12 Tuesdays are a great deal too. Here was last week's choices:

          Crab Cake with 3-mustard aioli. Petit Filet with horseradish cream. Rigatoni tossed with sausage and marinara. Seared Sea Scallops with linguine and pesto. Veal Saltimbocca - procuitto, provolone and sage. Linguine with white clam sauce. Seared Ahi Tuna with avocado lime salsa. Grilled Pork Loin with Napa cabbage pecan slaw and red chili lime aioli. Rigatoni A La Vodka with grilled chicken. Seared Day Boat Codfish with risotto and wild mushrooms (royal trumpet, oyster and crimini.)

            Bertha's - I have a vague recollection that there's a fireplace in the front dining room. Can anybody confirm?

              Not so much a restaurant, but Birds of a Feather in Fells a fireplace in the back and maybe the best Scotch list I've ever seen.

                    If this is a "drinking date" the Wharf Rat in Fells Point has huge fireplace.

                        Don't know about Whart Rat Pratt St, but Wharf Rat Ann St. in Fells Point is alive and kicking. I like this fireplace thread -- I think I only go in Wharf Rat when it snows.

                          Okay--thanks for the clarification. Didn't realize that there were two Whart Rat restaurants, since I haven't been to either. In any event--this is definitely a fireplace enhanced restaurant weekend--dine out--oh, and it's Restaurant Week. Think I'll stay at home, avoid the snow, sleet, rain and crowds. Maybe I'll make some crabcakes with Asian crabmeat. FoiGras

                            I was talking about Fells Point, the other one has been closed for years.

                          Williamsburg Inn and Patrick's in Cockeysville. Also, Elkrdige Furnace Inn and the King's Contrivance (Columbia).

                          Haven't been since it reopened, but Peerce's Grille (used to be Plantation) FoiGras

                                I will play....let's start with 2 very different places.....The first floor of the Diz in Remington for good bar food and beers & The Milton Inn where the food may not always get rave reviews but that room is hard to beat with the fireplace for date night.

                                  The diz remodeled a few years ago (its right across the street from "charm city cakes") and the fireplace is still there. The old bay wings are awesome. If you go on a quiet night the diz could be a good place for a date too.
