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.”

On the Table: While we love that Linwoods screams old school (starched white tablecloths, sea of toques, house-made thin mints), we also appreciate that this solid stalwart is never stale with its always innovative take on contemporary American cuisine–from designer flatbreads with spinach, goat cheese, and bacon; to sea bass with lemon crab salad and horseradish potatoes; to simply prepared grilled beef tenderloin with potato gratin. The secret to this spot’s success? In an industry known for its turnover, owner Linwood Dame’s claim to fame is that he has had the same executive chef, Thomas Devine, since the start of his business in 1988.
At Your Service: From the constant napkin folding to the waitstaff’s well-timed trips to our table, we never fail to feel tended to.
Inside Story: Armani-esque neutrals, warm woods, and a shiny exhibition kitchen invoke modern glamour.
Good Taste: Dishes come and go, but the broiled crab cakes with corn pudding are a constant menu masterpiece.
