Charleston in Baltimore

lesliej | Nov 1, 2004 02:29 PM

A group of colleagues and I ate at Charleston in Baltimore last week. Very expensive ($125/person for a group of 8 with 3 bottles of wine) but definitely worth it.

I had cornmeal breaded and fried oysters to start - they were so lightly fried that they were barely cooked and perfect. Others had foie gras that was fresh and wonderful and just melted in your mouth, served on a bed of lentils with a cherry reduction. There was a fabulous butternut squash soup, and shrimp with tasso and grits. Entrees included a beef tenderloin with hoppin' john and fried green tomatoes, grilled tuna with a tomato salad, and grilled lamb chops with bourbon sauce and garlic flan. They had a to-die-for cheese tray. Desserts included a sundae made with cajeta ice cream, and fresh berries with sabayon.
