I don't eat here often, because the cost of a meal that I like and that fills me up is too expensive for a regular thing. The bar, however, has some happy hours with reasonably priced drinks and nice, free items to nibble on.
For restaurant week, I immediately went off the fixed-price menu and ordered a martini. It tasted good, but for $11.50 I found it to be a meager portion. The complimentary tapenade (two kinds) tasted good. The roll was pretty good as well. For an appetizer, I chose the "tuna stack," which was raw tuna layered on top of some mango layered onto avocado, with mild wasabi sauce drizzled on top of the "stack." I enjoyed this very much. Thinking that I would still be hungry eating only off of the fixed-price menu, I ordered an "appetizer of the day" that was described as being oysters covered by crab imperial. It turned out to be three oysters lightly covered in what I suppose could be classified as crab imperial. It tasted reasonably good, but when the bill arrived, and I saw that the appetizer was priced at twenty-one dollars, I regretted ordering it (it wasn't "twenty one dollars good" :) ). For my main course, I had the crabcake and green beans. The crab cake was good. It was a bit small, and it was not the very best that I have had in Baltimore. The beans were fresh and good. For dessert, I ordered the apple crisp (w. vanilla ice cream). There was a great deal more "crisp" than "apple," and my impression was that it was a bit dry and needed more apples, some lemon juice, a touch of cinnamon, and more butter in the "crisp." The ice cream was good. For the restaurant week price, I enjoyed the limited-choice meal. I understand that the filet main course was very good, as was the maple cheesecake dessert. The two items that I ordered off of regular menus, taking price into account, were a disappointment. If judged only by taste, service, and atmosphere, it was an enjoyable experience that I would like to repeat.
