The Epic Seafood Club
Dan loves seafood, so he chose Bluestone, a County restaurant known for seafood, to celebrate his birthday recently. Bluestone is quite lovely inside. It's also pretty crowded with a ton of suburban locals looking to go somewhere
a) really nice
b) that's not too far away
c) with good food
d) and not a chain.
Bluestone fits that description to a T.
This is also the type of place where you will see people both dressed to the nines as well as jeans and sneakers (myself).
All Dan wanted was a Seafood Club: Crabcake + Shrimp Salad + Bacon + Sore Mouth from opening too wide. His seafood club cost $17....that's hefty for a sandwich, but he loved it and declared that it's his favorite sandwich ever!!!!
I decided to get a crab cake sandwich for $14, and merely just discarded the bun (yuck, I hate wasting!) and found that Bluestone's crab cake, which was a very nice size considering I ordered the sandwich, was excellent. Plus the GIANT asparagus were great as well, though I do hate when restaurants serve vegetables with a ton of oil considering I chose that side instead of fries to be healthy.
When I came here before, I tried one of their seafood entrees, and I remember being blown away by the meal. What I also love is that they have a dessert chef as well, so all the desserts are made in-house. Yum! Their creme brulee is FANTASTIC.
Overall, this place has great food, I am pretty lucky that it's so close to me! If you're a city-dweller and find yourself in Timonium (perhaps to visit Baltimore Coffee & Tea, which is literally right across the street) and feel like having a great (though a tad pricey) meal - you will not be disappointed with Bluestone!
