Farmstead Grill Opening

Since The Dogwood closed, everyone's been waiting for Galen Sampson's new venture. Farmstead Grill, at the Shops at Canton Crossing, will finally open its doors at 11am on Monday, June 16th. The restaurant, which makes farm-to-table dining affordable, will serve lunch and dinner seven days a week. Examples of dishes that will be served: grilled Chesapeake oysters gratinéed with smoked crab spring spinach and fennel; Moroccan spiced lamb with roasted tri-colored carrots and wilted baby dandelion greens; and mustard and lavender honey roasted half chicken with baby haruki turnips and rosemary salt-baked new potatoes.

Colorful and airy, the 6000-square foot, 230-seat, Farmstead Grill is flooded with natural light from both ground-level and clerestory windows. The interior weaves together such rustic elements as reclaimed barn-wood and beams, wrought iron and rough-textured linen with cream leather upholstery and colorful banquettes. The restaurant seats 190 on two levels indoors and 48 outside on a raised patio facing a leafy park. And parking is plentiful and free!

The restaurant is located at 3721 Boston Street, Baltimore, MD 21224. Reservations can be made online starting June 16th at www.farmsteadgrill.com or by calling 410-762-2100.

Farmstead Grill’s companion kiosk, Farmstead Shack, will open in July. This 430-square foot carry-out with 30 outdoor seats and a wine and beer license is across the park from Farmstead Grill and will host a wide variety of lawn parties and events. Its menu will feature house-made hot dogs, brats, breakfast biscuits, fresh juices and more.
