Rob, check out Clavel, Birroteca and La Cuchara. I love all those places.

I think Birroteca is really overrated.  We went to the one in Bel Air and wasn't that impressed at all.  It wasn't bad or anything but it didn't blow me away like I thought it would.

 

We are actually going to go to Rye Street Tavern.  Kept reading a lot of good things and we haven't been there.

 

I want to try some of these other places that you guys are suggesting too.

 

Its funny, as I went through the Trip Advisor lists and things like that, I kept seeing a lot of the same places and places we love to go...just wanted something different.

I haven't eaten at RST, just had some drinks after the Sagamore tour.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

I've heard good things about Rye Street Tavern too and I still need to go soon; definitely on my list.


Agree with Rob on not enjoying Birroteca as much as I thought I would.

La Barrita is an Argentinian Steakhouse that recently opened in Butchers Hill. It's getting solid reviews. I haven't been there yet,


Good news! I saw a dog today.

A friend sent me that the other day. Sounds great...I can see myself there very often. Almost makes me wish I still lived in Catonsville.

I'm skeptical of the brewery part and can easily go to the market for a crabcake, but hopefully it works out.

Gnocco, as well.  Chef/owner is moving out west and the partners decided to close up shop rather than try to find a new chef.

That sucks. Never made it there but my wife went twice and said it was good.

Went to Citron last night.

Nice restaurant, great views, good area.

Calamari was excellent.

Got a Filet. It was good but not great.

Overall, good restaurant. Not amazing or anything but solid. Probably not as good as the pricing is but the area and how the restaurant looks allows for them to ask for those prices.

Blaze Pizza in the Inner Harbor apparently closed over the weekend with no warning.

The Bateman's in Reisterstown closed last month. Not a huge deal but it was a good option as a bar. 

 

Owings Mills seems to be taking all of the business from everyone in this area.

Bateman's was awful. We had our FF draft at the Reisterstown one for years. Now we've moved to the equally awful Owings Mills Greene Turtle.

Never been to any of them, but Fadensonnen looks interesting.

Ate well the last four nights... 

 

Woodberry Kitchen for my wife's work party Thursday, Cunningham's for my Dad's bday Friday...  my Mother got in-town Saturday, and we went to Ozuo Bay Saturday night, and Gunther & Co. last night. 

 

Had been to each previously, but enjoyed getting back and trying new things. 

 

 

Also earlier last week my Sis-in-Law was in-town and she's vegan, so we went to Great Sage in Columbia / Clarksville. Enjoyed that as well.

I've had Chicken Rico twice in the last four days, so I'm pretty happy with that.

I said it in the New Years thread but we went to Bookmakers for New Years.  It was a private party but the service was really excellent.

 

The food was more appetizer type stuff but it was really good.  Lamb meatballs were phenomenal.  Sliders were buffalo chicken and pork belly (which was so good).

 

Just overall good food....Whiskey bar, so they had a lot of different types of whiskeys.

 

Want to go back for an actual dinner, as I am sure the rest of the food is really good.
