We had a light lunch after visiting BMA,which partly under renovation.
At 12:30 around,there's pretty much customers who enjoy their brunch/lunch.

We tried garden omlette and egg Benedict.
Both sides were same,baked dice potate and other vegetables.
Since they were very typical brunch menu,it was nothing specific with them.

But with all scenic garden view and atmosphere,we enjoyed our time.

By the way complimentary mini scone and corn muffin was superb!was accompanied with jam&cream.

Compared to those of NYC's brunch,it was very reasonable.

On a dining spree in Baltimore in search of the best crab cake, we found it in a most unlikely place: The wonderfully sophisticated restaurant in the Biltmore Art Museum. It is not necessary to tour the museum (which is free and currently in renovation mode) before entering Gertrude’s, where there is indoor and outdoor dining. It was apparent that Gertrude’s, not the museum, was the destination for most luncheon diners because they dressed better than the typical sloppy tourist one sees these days. On our visit, crab cakes -- the best we had in Baltimore -- were offered broiled or pan fried. We chose pan fried because that is the classic way to cook crab cakes. Other food was very good, the service is smooth and professional, and the wine list is impressive and reasonably priced.

This was my first visit to Gertrude's. The selection was not as wide as one might have expected, but there was a decent range. Everyone had something different and there were no complaints heard - the food was excellent! The venue is small and the tables are very close together - difficult for conversation with your tablemates (however, I was able to hear the adjoining table's conversation quite clearly!). Overall, a pleasant dining experience, but not sure it lives up to the hype (or the price). There's probably better options in the city. It's worth noting that there was a function happening at the museum, as well as it being a Friday night, and it might be a very different (more enjoyable) evening on a slower, quieter night.

It was a little difficult to get to Gertrude's with all the road construction in the area but the crab cake was worth the extra effort!! Also, construction is going on at the museum. Again, the crab cake was worth the effort!! I couldn't leave Baltimore without having a crab cake and was very pleased with my lunch at Gertrude's.

Our family of 5 went for a Sunday brunch and everything was delicious. VERY delicious. We loved walking around in the free sculpture gardens afterwards, and also toured the Baltimore Museum of Art briefly.
