I’m from Frederick, MD. I became passionate about food in Frederick, MD. I started working in restaurants in Frederick, MD. Frederick, MD is now a food destination thanks to a few key players.  Since I can remember, Tauraso’s was THE fine dining establishment in Frederick.  It was the place you went if you really wanted to SPLURGE.  Tauraso’s has since closed, but the owners operate a beautiful restaurant downtown called The Tasting Room, exuding the same elegance for special occasions.  They also own the best BBQ joint in Frederick, Black Hog.

My family and I make it a point to stop by the Tasting Room before holidays when we’re all together to indulge in their spectacular Happy Hour. If you’re in the area, make sure to stop by for one of their signature cocktails, the beef carpaccio, and the filet.  Keep reading for some of my favorite items on the menu!   READ FULL ARTICLE….
