On a Monday when many other restaurantes (VOLT!) were closed, Tasting Room was a good choice for lunch. The decor is modern though the dining area is not very large. The menu is contemporary, short and featuring local ingredients. The wine list is reasonablet though only one rose was available (another available as half-bottle). Green gazpacho was refreshing and had just a hint of olive oil and cilantro, but summer salad was terrific: arugula, squash, green beans, heirloom tomatoes, and radishes - all local. Risotto with crab and corn was excellent, and a plate of shrimp and grits was garnished with wonderfully crisp kale. Pineapple bread pudding was also excellent, and the only flaw was espresso prepared with too much water (and taken off the bill when this was pointed out). Although this is not a cheap restaurant, the menu is interesting and very well prepared. Definitely a good choice in the center of Frederick.
