Stopped in for dinner at B&O today and was blown away by the new menu. I planned to have a light bite and continue on my way home, but I ended up devouring the crimini & crab bisque, the charcuterie and the sweet tea chicken!...More

The restaurant is within the Hotel Monaco. We made a reservation on Open Table My wife had the wedge salad and I had the crab bisque soup. For entrees we had the trout and the scallops. The cauliflower was yummy as were the entrees.

This is a typical hotel restaurant. The food is good and they have a nice selection. Nothing special but not bad for a quick breakfast.More

Granted, the four-star has nothing to do with the food or the drinks, so please read to the end. It's worth noting that while I was there (and it was early; it wasn't even 7PM), it was a parade of the horribles (and again, maybe...More

The food was average. I had a breakfast and lunch there due to some meetings. The place is small so there isn't much room to move around. The service was good, and my good actually got there pretty quickly.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!
