Restaurants & Bars 2

A tale of two Linwoods

Brian | Oct 23, 2002 11:06 AM

A few months back I posted a bad experience with Linwood’s restaurant on here. Shortly afterwards, someone from the restaurant contacted me, gave me a gift certificate, and asked me to come back and give them another chance.

So, a few weeks ago, my wife an I gave them another shot. And we were glad that we did.

To avoid any preferential treatment, I made the reservation under an alias. (Plus, it made me feel like James Bond. Or at least James Bond’s sensible-car-driving equivalent.)

For starters, our server (I believe his name was Michael. Young guy. Deserves a raise.) was terrific. When my wife ordered a glass of wine from the list that he thought was sub-par, he recommended a glass of pinot gris instead. It was a good call.

The food was also impressive. I had tuna with crabmeat, ham and fried onion laces with a tangy bbq sauce. Sounded like a strange mix, so naturally I had to try it. I wasn’t disappointed.

Dessert was my favorite part of the meal (shocking as that may be). Our server recommended the pecan tart a la mode, and it was cooked to perfection. Just the right pecan to filling ratio. Nothing better than a good pecan pie/tart.

Except maybe sex.

And, maybe, winning the lottery.

And, arguably, getting a good parking space at Towson Town Center anytime between mid November and mid January.

But that’s besides the point.

The point is, go to Linwoods. It’s good.

And if you tip well, they might even call you Mr. Bond.

Especially if that’s your name.
