Zagat Review - The Best Burgers in 25 Cities
Chef-owner Linwood Dame brings “interesting nuances” to his “impeccable” “modern” American cuisine at this “serene” spot in Owings Mills that’s been “charming” “sophisticated” diners for around a quarter-century; a “contemporary, elegant” room with an open grill, patrolled by a “first-rate” staff, enhances an experience that’s worthy of a “special occasion” or any time “you’re feeling plush.”

If you’re a dyed-in-the-wool Baltimorean, a trip to Linwoods probably means a special occasion. The smooth dark-wood interior, walls of hunter green, and bevy of white-toqued chefs hard at work in the open kitchen promise something special and grown-up. But while the restaurant pre-dates many of the digs that define Baltimore as a foodie town, Linwoods is by no means over the hill. Even words like seasoned and mature don’t do it justice—unless you’re describing the way a pat of blue cheese slowly melts on the surface of a juicy tenderloin, or the sweet lemon crab salad embellishing a generous fillet of sea bass, with horseradish-spiked mashed potatoes on the side. Linwoods combines the cultivation we take for granted with such casual updates as pizza from a wood-burning oven, a dinner salad topped with grilled duck, and a crab cake with fried tomatoes. In other words, there’s no need to wait for a big event.
