Restaurants

The suburban enclaves of Frederick County proffer residents a number of national chains, giving people respite from cooking up a storm at home. Frederick’s historic downtown area, home to a number of privately owned businesses, brings visitors a culinary escape.

Get lost in the intimate atmosphere of Volt, an upscale New American restaurant housed within a 19th-century brownstone mansion. This restaurant brings patrons into its dining area, reminiscent of the building’s original construction during the Gilded Era, as its renowned chef prepares dishes using seasonal, fresh and local ingredients. Indulge in a full-course meal, including the braised lamb, and for your first visit, sample the tasting menu, which takes you from the vegetable course to the meat course and ends with dessert.

Nothing brings people together better than the tasty pizza pie served at Pistarro’s. Not only does the Neapolitan-style pizza here deliver satisfying flavor, the restaurant’s casual atmosphere brings in all ages. The establishment also has a bar with an attentive bartender, making this destination a good place to wind down on a Friday night. While here, be sure to try the Bianca.

For a casual lunch with your friends or a more formal dinner with family, Ayse Meze Lounge brings its diners a tapas-style menu with Mediterranean-inspired flavors. Order a number of small plates to share or a few for yourself. From the hummus to dolmades, every well-prepared dish intrigues the palate. Many rank the Bruksel Lahanasi — the house special of grilled brussel sprouts topped with walnuts, capers, and honey — as a must.

Continue your night-time festivities after dinner in downtown Frederick by heading over to the Irish pub Bushwaller's if you want a low-key night with friends. For more bang for your buck, Wag's Restaurant, a little hole in the wall, has an amazingly low-priced happy hour.
