A few of us are looking to take our friend out to a nice restaurant in Baltimore (preferred), Elicott City (2nd) and DC area (3rd) to celebrate our friend's final single days.
Criteria: quality of food, nice ambiance and cost. we are all graduate students - we should be able to spend up to $40 a person, so that still rules out places like the Charleston. The restaurant should be quiet enough so that we don't have to shout through dinner, but it also needn't be super formal and plays only classical music. A decent wine list is helpful.
Does any chow hound have good suggestions?
Thanks a bunch!
