Chartreuse & co shopping tips
Here's a few insider tips on shopping at Chartreuse:
1. When you're certain you want to buy a piece of furniture, pull the tag.
2. Should you change your mind about the piece, return the tag to any Chartreuse dealer or to the counter.
3. No price on that great piece you're interested in? It's already taken.
4. Prices are firm.
5. Our hard-working, young haulers appreciate any tip you may like to give them.
6. Can't take it with you? You have up to 2 weeks to pick it up. And we have delivery options available.
7. Great, homemade food is available all weekend.
7. Have a great time!

There are tons of great places to eat, shop, and stay in and around Frederick, MD. Here's some Chartreuse & co favorites:

Favorite dining in Frederick:

$$$$$
Volt

Nationally acclaimed and boasting Brian Voltaggio as its owner and chef, this is Frederick's premiere restaurant. Foodies travel from NYC, DC, Richmond, and beyond to enjoy an evening here. And it is an evening. Perfect service. A delight to the palette. 3-5 courses is typical, but be prepared to spend $100/each, minimum. It's an experience, and a treat.

$$$
The Tasting Room
Before Volt arrived on the scene with it's celebrity chef, The Tasting Room was Frederick's ultimate dining experience. Michael Tauraso (chef and owner) is an extraordinary chef who loves and understands food. Their lobster bisque alone is worth the trip. And they have the best martinis in town.

$$$
Firestone's
So into food, they opened a nice little gourmet food shop right next door. Their duck is divine. Ask for a table upstairs by the windows. They look down on Market St., and give you dinner and a show!

$$
Il Porto
Excellent italian cuisine. Their daily specials are always a treat as they're what's fresh from market. Nice wine list, too. If you stay at Hollerstown Hill B&B, Il Porto is just a few blocks down Market from you.

$$
Isabella's
A true tapas bar. Select from a huge selection of 'little plates' - your server can recommend for you if it's too overwhelming. We usually start with 4 dishes, share, and add as we're inspired. It's fun. If you're in the mood, try their Lemon Drop Martini. They're also known for the sangria.

$
Black Hog BBQ
Featuring all types of BBQ - this great BBQ, is owned and run by Mike Tauraso, the same guy who owns The Tasting Room.

$
Nido's
One of our go-to restaurants for years. Very simple pasta menu that has not changed in 20 years. I love their eggplant parmesean, and their spaghetti marinara is the best in town. Grab a jar of their sauce to take home - yes, it's that good.

Downtown Frederick Shopping:

So many! I love:

Places to Stay

Hill House
On West Third Street, it's at the heart of historic downtown (I actually grew up several blocks west of this inn on West Third Street). All the houses throughout this area are late 18th and early-mid-19th century row houses. Just around the corner from Frederick's main street, Market Street, it's location is perfect for walking to all the shops and eateries along Market and Patrick Sts.

Hollerstown Hill
In a quieter part of town, Hollerstown Hill is nestled alongside the historic campus of Maryland School for the Deaf. It boasts a lovely garden and all the charm you'd expect from a high Victorian home. It's a pleasant walk of about 4-5 blocks into the heart of the buisness district (but be warned that it does sit on a hill, and returning is a climb.)

Additionally, there are several new, clean hotels within a few miles of Chartreuse & co:

Courtyard by Marriott, Fairfield Inn, and Hilton Garden Inn seem to be the best ones, as recommended by other visitors.

Nearby Leesburg, VA:
If you like the Chartreuse & co shopping experience, you'll also want to visit: Old Lucketts Store in Lucketts, VA, just 20 minutes south of us. It's a fabulous store including 30 dealers, filled with great finds and an inspiring decorator style.
The Cottage in Leesburg, VA, a quick 10 minute drive beyond Lucketts, is a Victorian-era home, transformed into a delightfully decorated vintage home-furnishings store.

Plus downtown Leesburg,VA is loaded with history, charm, and some great food, as well:

$$$
Lightfoot Restaurant
- Downtown Leesburg, the owner/chef of this great restaurant has transformed the late 1800s bank into a stunning location for enjoying some truly excellent food. Excellent wine list, too.

$$
Blue Ridge Grill
- Along the bypass around Leesburg, this surprise of a restaurant is located behind (yes, I mean behind) the McDonalds, surrounded by otherwise typical strip mall fare. Walk inside and be comforted by an oh-so-Virginia-horse-country decor, along with delicious food. My favorite is the Seared Tuna Salad. My husband loves their French Dip.
