Black Market Garrett Park

The main dining room is small. A real estate agent might call it cozy. I think it's one of the nicest places around to get lunch/brunch. This is a shot of the main dining room. They have taken over most of the rest of the former Post-Office building since they started their project in '03.

Crushed ice in your Diet Coke. Nothing could be better on a summer day. The restaurant has a patio too, so when the weather is nice you can sit out front and watch the train go by. The neighborhood it's in is a quaint, quite place. Except for when the train rolls through.
I asked the server if the soup of the day, French Onion, was made from scratch. She said, "Of course it is!" Had to try it. Nicely done. The burgers here are always good. Nice flavorful bacon. None of that microscopic stuff that tastes like shaved nothing. The onion straws are crispy-crunchy-salty goodness.
This was my entree. The smoked turkey/bacon/havarti grilled cheese. Good stuff.
Overall? I recommend this place highly. I always have. It's good for a romantic dinner, or a lunch with friends. The food from Barbara Black's kitchens is always good.
Thanks for reading folks. I'll be writing again soon. My next post should be about Westend Bistro by Eric Ripert.
