Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

I'd give it 3 stars......
I should just take a leave of absence and write restaurant reviews for the month of October. In the last 10 days, I have been to the following Baltimore and Washington establishments:

'b' in Bolton Hill. My homey hangout. Great atmosphere, nice wine list, always consistent.

IXIA. This was pretty intense. It was part of a museum exhibit / wine tasting night with a special menu. Wonderful beyond all expectations. Highly recommend.

Beers at the Wharf Rat, followed by a home bound feast of serious antipasto, cheese, crackers, and wine from Wegman's.

Korean food with the girls at Nak Won. Definitely a place to go with four or more people to share a grill table and all the wonderful side dishes.

The Wine Market. Urbane, sophisticated, great space, great food.

Salt. See previous post. Wonderful find.

Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Business dinner

Dizzie Izzie's. Not haute cuisine, but very decent sandwiches and bar food. Great quesadillas!

Fleming's Steakhouse. Also a business dinner.

Donna's Coffee Bar. Ubiquitous lunch spot.

Pazo. Cool, hip, chic. The place to see and be seen and a great place for out of town guests (of which I have many lately!).

The Fish Market. Old Town Alexandria, VA and one of the best brunches ever.

I have friends arriving on Wednesday for the American Wine Society meeting taking place in Hunt Valley this weekend (11/8 - 12). A semi-professional gathering of wine producers, restaurant owners, and wine lovers, it promises to be another very long week/weekend....
