B&O Brasserie News

Stuff is going down at B&O! First of all, they have a new chef, Thomas Dunklin, and he's created a new Spring menu that includes small plates.

“I love the idea of bringing small plates to the restaurant. To me, it gives guests the opportunity to sample and taste many different items from the menu without having to settle on just one entrée.”

I concur. Click here to see the menus. We'll be having dinner there soon and will report back to you on the deliciousness. :)

Next, B&O American Brasserie will be hosting the Bottle Battle: Cocktails v. Wines on April 27 from 6-8pm. Kimpton’s Master Sommelier Emily Wines (great name for a sommelier, huh?) challenges Award-Winning Head Bartender and Mixologist Brendan Dorr in an interactive cocktails v. wine dinner. 

During the evening, Chef Dunklin will prepare three original courses, each served with a wine and cocktail pairing from Wines and Dorr, followed by a small dessert course. In their quest for bragging rights and a chance at the championship belt, Wines and Dorr will make their case with a short course-by-course presentation to the guests, who then judge each selection based on a variety of criteria, including taste, versatility, etc.

The price of the four-course dinner is $60 per person, which includes three savory courses, a dessert course and wine and cocktail pairings. Please note that gratuity is not included. To attend Bottle Battle, please call (443) 692- 6172. Limited space available so reservations are highly recommended.
