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.”

Baltimore Magazine - Best in Baltimore 2015

Food and Drink: Twenty-seven years ago, when the ’burbs were mostly a dining desert, Linwoods—with its impeccable nod to contemporary American cuisine—was an oasis. From a tenderloin salad with Gorgonzola vinaigrette to simple preparations of fish, we can say with certainty that every dish is a winner here. Even the crab cakes with corn pudding go down more memorably than most in this crustacean-crazed town. And while the wine list is worthy, the infused pineapple martinis are our Kryptonite. Service: Linwood Dame, a Culinary Institute of America grad who cooked for the Coast Guard, runs a tight ship, making sure his servers are menu-literate and always accommodating of special requests. Vibe: Crisp white tablecloths and Armani-showroom-inspired neutrals cast a spell of sophistication. Insider tip: For great dinner theater (and the warmest seat in the house), reserve a barstool on the grill line and watch the show. 25 Crossroads Dr., Owings Mills, 410-356-3030.
