Good food but limited menu. Service wasn't fast but if you want a leisurely experience this would be a nice place to have a good conversation and drinks.More

I wasn't overly impressed by this restaurant. The food was ok - the menu didn't have a lot of great choices. I ordered the fondue with chips. It was good - but was chosen out of process of elimination rather than because I really wanted...More

Description
When you inherit a space as magical as the historic former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad headquarters, you've got to do it justice. We kept our building's most stunning architectural features intact while updating the space with contemporary design elements and nostalgic touches, like chairs and table lamps from original B&O dining cars. Our practices are distinctly 21st century, though, from selecting the best local produce at the farmer's market to serving cutting-edge craft cocktails to maintaining a steadfast commitment to sustainable business practices. If only train passengers from the early 1900s had it so good!
