This past Saturday, I met my friend Jen in Frederick for lunch and shopping. Downtown Frederick is such a cute area with a bunch of unique shops. I hadn't been shopping in awhile, so it was fun to explore and pick up some new things.
We decided to try out The Tasting Room for lunch.
I started with a glass of Pinot Grigio that was refreshing and light.
They brought warm, crusty bread with butter. I think the TR stencil on the butter was made from paprika. Nice touch.
We ordered a starter of grilled calamari with a spicy garlic/tomato sauce served over a piece of crusty bread. This was absolutely delicious.
I ordered the salmon, which came with a rice cake, wilted spinach & a sweet chili sauce.
Jen ordered the swordfish, which came with shrimp, crab, potatoes, & mushrooms in a cajun cream sauce.
Both dishes were beautifully to look at and even better to eat. I savored every single bite of my fancy lunch.
