At Charleston restaurant in Baltimore, you’ll not only get to sample at least four different courses from chef Cindy Fox, you’ll also receive two special gifts from the kitchen, including an amuse bouche after being seated and mignardises as a finale with your coffee. The kitchen specializes in French-influenced contemporary cuisine and regularly uses the bounty of Maryland’s farms. You’ll likely begin your meal with a shot glass filled with soup and a small nibble, whether it’s a rich and velvety cold vichyssoise come summer, served with a small circle of toast topped with salmon rillettes, or a warming black bean soup accompanied by a miniature empanada when the temperature drops. You’ll also receive a selection of sweets at the end of your meal, from classic chocolate bonbons to lavender meringues and colorful macarons. Like with your meal at Charleston, even the special gifts from the chef allow you to experience a variety of tastes.
