My girlfriends and always go out for a nice Holiday dinner… in January when the crazyness of the holidays dies down. This year one of my friends saw a deal on Travelzoo where you got to choose 1 Appetizer, 1 Entree, and 1 Dessert from a pre fixe menu….. plus a glass of sparkling wine… all for $29 each……… Sold. It was like a Restaurant Week deal… but better
We rolled up to the Hotel Monaco- Baltimore…. and fancy time went with the Valet service …. Only $5!!
The downstairs area is a large bar/lounge area with couches and a huge TV on 1 wall… and there was quite a crowd watching the 49s/Saints playoff game.
The dining room is upstairs…. pretty fancy… with nice huge banquette style seating for many of the tables.
The pre fixe menu was pretty awesome … we had a horrible time choosing… as everything sounded so good.
To start… I went with the – Roasted Pumpkin Bisque – cranberry / apple / roasted shallot. So awesome.. and they were not skimping on portion size….
For my entree I got Short Rib- fingerling sweet potato / brussels sprouts / bacon. So good… even the brussel sprouts were good!
For dessert we each ordered one of the options to share….
Pecan Cobbler – whipped creme fraiche ; Callebeaut Hot Chocolate – whipped cream / chocolate shavings / chocolate hazelnut biscotti; Butternut Squash Doughnuts – cinnamon glaze / espresso milkshake
The clear winner to me was the doughnuts….but everything was awesome. We also ordered a bottle of wine.
The real total was $190… with our deal…$137….. pretty awesome. If you have an event at 1st Mariner Area… B&O Brasserie is in walking distance and I would totally recommend it.
