Road Trip: D. C./Baltimore Portion

rlcole4346 | Jan 8, 201710:43 AM

Day 14, 10/28-31: Washington DC: Another location where we onced lived. We spent our time primarily visiting old friends. We did go out for one memorable meal. Our friends suggested going to a suburb of Baltimore to have crab cakes. Easy to agree to.

Oh my goodness. That meal at G & M's was even better than we remembered for the Baltimore area. The crab cakes were large, thick, and stuffed with back fin. Our dear, dear friends suggested we order the two crab cakes dish (very reasonable discount). Their reasoning was that we could take one home and have it for breakfast the next morning. Their suggestion worked. What a perfect way to start the day. I would say the only problem with our visit to G & M's is that we ordered MD Crab Soup & Cream of Crab Soup as appetizers --good but too filling.

Day 15, 10/31, Baltimore: We visited old friends that evening, and had a wonderful meal at their house.

Day 16, 11/1, Baltimore: Met more old friends at Barrett's Grill in Hunt Valley. Once again, we shared various appetizers and entrees, split costs and somehow didn't get a receipt. I know we loved the place.

Day 17, 11/2, Ellicot City, MD: And, again, old friends meeting at a restaurant--Stella Notte. We generally don't select Italian restaurants, but this one was quite enjoyable. MC had Sophia’s Eggplant and I had Calves’ Liver Leonardo. She liked both, and I liked mine (just not an eggplant fan).

Day 18, 11/2-3, New Freedom, MD: Had a good visit with old friends/former neighbors. However, the meal at Seven Sports Bar & Grill was a bit disappointing. They were recommended for crab cakes, and we had them. Not bad, just not in the same league as G & M's .

Barrett's Grill,
Stella Notte
