Thursday's Trivia!







We had an overnighter last night! We went to Frederick, Maryland to a restaurant called Volt. Frederick is uber cool...it's much like a saner Georgetown...shops, row houses, restaurants...very sweet!

Volt is owned by a former Top Chef chef...Brian Voltaggio. The restaurant was in an old brownstone building...and it was lovely!


We opted for the Chef's Tasting...you just have to love a chef with a chicken!



Yummy decor...





Yummy salted breadsticks...











Yummy martini...











Yummy amuse-bouche...I ate the sphere that melted in your mouth...lol...I couldn't wait...











Yummy biscuit and sourdough slice...house made.











Yummy tomatoes...those white things are little oozy balls of goat cheese ricotta...the tomatoes were from a nearby place called buckeytown...love that name...these tomatoes were the most amazing things...











Clams...with melt in your mouth potatoes...











Halibut and asparagus...











Pasta with calamari...the pasta is black from squid ink...oh my! It looks like one mess but it was teeny tiny spoony bites...











Steak but that Wagyu beef one...the steak that cuts like buttah!











Dessert...apples and stuff...oh...that was basil ice cream...











A special extra treat they brought us...once you bit into it...it oozed orange soda stuff...Den loved it...











Calming soothing chamomile tea...













We love Rachel!









Plus...there was still more! Rachel...our server...packed us off with boxes of chocolates and meringues and individual coffee cakes for breakfast the next day.

We literally have eaten at amazing places...pretty much all over this country...and other countries...Volt is our new fave!


Reading this...really yummy...and planning a return trip to Volt...






Happy Thursday!
