You have to workj hard to get in because they are in the midst of remodeling. On top of that, vehicle access was tricky because HBO was shooting an episode of House of Cards on the steps of the museum.
We persevered and had a lovely table in the Sculpture Garden--surprisingly pleasant in this blissfully cool August.
My two companions loved their entrees, but my flatbread was puffed up and doughy. All was forgiven, however, when I tasted Gertrude's rendition of the traditional Baltimore peach cake. Best l've ever had. My husband opted for a Berger's cookie cone that could have fed three people, but he ate the whole thing!

John shields knows food. Enough said. Three of is took on the restaurant week menu, tries various things including vegan, and the food was so good it's hard to explain in a short paragraph. Just go. One suggestion. We loved the mace peach cake, but our friend didn't know the flavor of mace and was disappointed Maybe offer both as an option? Thx for a super time.

Very surprising and sophisiticated restaurant located in Balt Museum of Art (adjacent to Johns Hopkins). Food was surprisingly good for a brunch and for any lovers of art - location can't be beat!

Went here for the first time during Baltimore restaurant week. Friend had the vegan menu which was delicious, although the quinoa (quinoa stuffed tomato) was not fully cooked-still had a little crunch to it. Mace Peach cake was phenomenal. Food was fresh and portions were decent. Found the food and setting lovely, great for brunch or a date. Nothing life changing.

PARKING: $4 after 5pm in the restaurant parking lot or metered street parking on nearby streets at .50 an hour.

RESERVATION: Recommend making a reservation. It fills up quickly.

Beautiful setting overlooking the sculpture garden. Found the staff a little "stand-offish". Had soup and half sandwiches all good. Sweet potato fries good. Loved the museum.
