Favorite dining in Frederick:
Make a day, or weekend, of it!
There are tons of great places to eat, shop, and stay in and around Frederick, MD. Here’s some Chartreuse & co favorites:
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.
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!
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.
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.
The. Best. Lattes. They put Starbucks to shame. Order yours in the classic, wide-mouth cup, sit back, and enjoy. You can thank me later. . . The food here is great, too. All freshly made, locally sourced. I love the unexpected blend of flavors. Though I don’t love high-top tables, grab one in the window at Nola for some great people watching.
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:
– 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.
Downtown Frederick Shopping:
So many! I love:
Silk & Burlap, Chic mix of fashion and home decor
The Emporium – huge antique mall, right downtown, and it wraps around to
Venus on the Half Shell – Hip collection of vintage clothing and mid-century furnishings.
Tiara Day – ultimate glamour girl experience
The Muse – handmade items from throughout the USA
Ink This – everything stationary
Zoe’s Chocolates – The Best.

Places to Stay
Frederick Inn @ Buckeystown
Just down the road about 1/2 mile is the thoughtfully renovated, graciously decorated Frederick Inn in Buckeystown. Take a look: Fabulous Renovation in Buckeystown
Fabulous Buckeystown Renovation, part 2
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.
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.
