Baltimore County Restaurant Week report

Christopher DanielTed in Parkville sends news of his Restaurant Week experience in Baltimore County, which got in on the promotion for the first time this year. Here's Ted. LV

We took advantage of Restaurant Week Thursday as we have in the past, but this time it was a little different because it was not Baltimore City Restaurant Week but Baltimore County's First Restaurant Week.

Our 6:30 p.m. reservation was at Christopher Daniel on Padonia Road in Cockeysville/Hunt Valley.

Both dining rooms were busy and there were only a couple empty tables during the 90 minutes we were there.

Ann had the Crab & Clam Chowder and I settled for prosciutti, watermelon, feta, and pistachio for Course #1.

Available entrees included rare tuna, trout, steak, and veal. Ann took steak and I had the veal and portobello. Both were excellent.

For dessert we shared cheesecake and peach cobbler ala mode which were both good.

With two Cosmos and three draft beers the tab ran to $111.00 before tip. We are looking for another choice - probably in the City - for Sunday.
